This season, Loobie’s Story is inspired by love, romance, and longing. The romance of a love story is translated in pretty winter pastels, earthy neutrals, soft blues and greens and moody petrol. Black holds strong as a base to autumnal dreamy floral prints paving the way for dramatic jewel tones of flamingo, emerald, lime, and cobalt paired perfectly to enhance one another.
Autumn styling offers mix-and-match-suiting in plaids, plains and pinstripes, all created to work independently or together. In the spotlight are pants in various shapes to suit individual tastes ranging from wide-legged, tulip, tapered, split bootleg and jogger styles. Denim is refreshed in shape and detail in colours that compliment the whole collection. Softly feminine dresses designed to be styled in more than one way are dramatic and romantic.
With the softest handle, knitwear is fun featuring chain-stitched embroidery, delicate mohair ruffles, ombre yarns and integrated cables. Shapes are varied with gilets for layering, cardis either cropped to create proportion or longline, and often belted over dresses to create shape. Styles are chunky and boxy with threaded strapping and modern pointelle or elegantly feminine with delicate ruffles and scalloped edging.
The cooler months are all about accessories – self-quilted belts to highlight or create shape, or the silk habotai scarves to add a pop of colour when desired.
Loobie’s Story A/W 2023 is a story about love, love that embodies romance past and present, and those still on the horizon.
