Loewe x Duane Michals for AW18 Men’s Collection

Loewe Creative Director Jonathan Anderson has teamed  up with celebrated American Artist Photographer Duane Michals to produce a black and white photo narrative series to go along side Loewe’s static exhibition of AW18 products in their Parisian showroom.  Michals photographed the British actor Josh O’Conner as a failed magician, performing in the Teatro Reina Victoria in Madrid.  “He had carte blanche,” Anderson said. “He came to Madrid and shot these tableaux in an old theater. He painted the backdrops and made the props.” The magician makes the model Erik Frey appear in a new Loewe outfit with each new trick performed.  Over a career of 55 years Michal’s is constantly reinventing himself and has produced work from staged photographs to multi-media works with painted and manipulated photographs, as well as constructing elaborate fictional narratives.  As well as the exhibition the images will alsobe published as a limited edition volume designed by M/M Paris.
