Loewe’s creative director Jonathan Anderson has selected the late performance artist, actor, John Waters’ favourite, and camp icon Divine for the brand’s latest capsule collection.
«Divine, pseudonym of Harris Glenn Milstead, was absolutely out of the ordinary. He lived an intense life as a man, performer, and character. For me it is the embodiment of the principle of self-determination. » Jonathan Anderson, Creative Director of Loewe said.
The limited edition capsule collection features three iconic T-shirts and a cushion tote bag in canvas, some showcasing Divine’s famous label as “The filthiest person alive”.
To continue Divine’s legacy and honour this larger-than-life personality, the collection will be accompanied by a digital exhibition of memorabilia that will include the famous white dress for Tom Eyen’s, ‘The Neon Woman’, later repurposed for various Christmas photographs, Interview magazine covers with illustrations by Richard Bernstein, personal letters, Divine’s personal makeup case from 1988, and more archival material shot by legendary photographer Greg Gorman.
It is available online, and at Loewe’s Greene street store in New York City.
