The whistle of the salty wind, the greetings between the waves and the sand, the internal peace that blossoms in solitude—yes, I’m talking about the beauty of summer escapism, which is precisely what Jonathan Anderson has bottled for Loewe‘s fifth Paula’s Ibiza 2021 collection.
With personal memories as inspiration, Anderson has created a series that connotes the freedom of summer in the city. He wants us to remember what it’s like to be worry-free and beautifully careless—a reminder we all need through these pressing times. Although we might not be able to physically experience being at the beach, Anderson reminds us that we don’t need to be, as summer is not just a season; it is a way of life, an attitude.
“Summer is heralded as a way of being, not just a season: a mindset that works all year long,” says Anderson. “A happily energising one.”

The Paula’s Ibiza collection complements freedom with authenticity with clothing made with the touch of hand an array of pieces made for both men and women. Choices range from blazers to dresses and breezy pieces such as sweatshirts, drawstring shorts and loose trousers.
But much like the enjoyment of a summer’s day, Anderson has also included numerous accessories, like canvas fisherman hats, goggle sunglasses and bags in woven natural fibres, for us to have the joy of mixing and matching. Dabbled in world-inspired prints and utilising a new perspective of the Loewe logo to further embrace a utopian vision, this collection wants you to do just one simple thing: let go.
Loewe Paula’s Ibiza 2021 will be available in stores from 15 April 2021.
