How To Do Beachwear Without Bikinis & Sundresses

We're taking cues from Loewe. Don't worry – sandals and straw things are still okay.

When you think of spring and summer, it is natural for the mind to wander into the beachwear terrain. Itty-bitty swimsuits and shorts, kaftans, flowy dresses that move with the waves – you get the picture. But all that just isn’t Jonathan Anderson’s thing. You think sun, sand and sea, he thinks sun, sand, sea and a little bit of a chill. Old boats resting by rickety wooden docks. Ladies watching the waves in their lingerie and shrugs. Their men lounging on tapestry couches with a straw hat and an old book. That sort of thing.

While beachwear typically points to sexy, Anderson prefers to look at it as…romantic. Organic materials cut raw are mixed with tassels, ruffles and gathers. Voluminous dresses share the stage with see-through lace blouses and old-school lingerie. Patchwork and tapestry are made masculine with leather details and big overcoats. It’s almost like beachwear after the last days of summer. Beachwear for fall, if you will. It’s like we said – what else would you wear whilst lounging by your chilly-and-slightly-damp-but-overall-romantic seaside cottage? No swimsuits and sunglasses here.
