LOEWE x Divine
In celebration of Pride, Spanish fashion house LOEWE honors the one and only, legendary drag icon, Divine. The collection, designed by Jonathan Anderson, is based on a poster for Divine’s The Neon Woman, 1978 illustrated by Richard Bernstein. The limited edition collection celebrates freedom and self-determination, inspired by Divine’s extravagant style and liberated spirit.
The limited edition capsule collection launched alongside an online exhibition, honoring Divine’s artistry through an array of iconic photographs and memorabilia of the drag queen. Showcasing posters, signed records, magazine covers and works by Richard Bernstein, the original starmaker, the exhibition “bursts with color, trash, fantasy, outrage, glamour, and freedom,” says Anderson.
Available on loewe.com and their Greene street store in New York, the collection will support Visual Aids and Baltimore Pride. Visual Aids is an organization that utilizes art to fight HIV/AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting artists living with HIV, and preserving a legacy. Baltimore Pride, which is the hometown of Divine, is a Black-led LGBTQ+ organization and celebration.
Running through the end of September, you can view the Divine exhibition today.
