A new Loewe runway show has unveiled a range of pixel art clothing items that look so similar to the in-game aesthetic we’ve become accustomed to over the years that at first glance it looks like photoshopped. However, look 19 and look 34 in the Loewe spring collection 2023 are very real and stunning.
The show itself had a wide range of different looks, pushing boundaries in a variety of areas of modern clothing with clothes from the hands and mind of JW Anderson. The show was coupled with pressing questions about “the fake behind our screens,” according to an article on the Vogue Runway website.
Regarding the pixelated tops and pants, Anderson offered an artistic description of his work, calling it “this weird illusion that suddenly breaks the pattern.” True, the clothes seem to literally jump out of the frame, almost on another virtual level above the background and the model’s fleshy features. It’s a far more impressive piece than those Minecraft Creeper t-shirts for kids that are sold everywhere.
This isn’t the first time major fashion brands and fashionistas have explored the world of video games. In 2019, Louis Vuitton partnered with League of Legends to create a limited edition digital fashion collection and Fortnite had their own high fashion collaboration with their BALENCIAGA in-game collection.
The reason for this is almost certainly money, as you can imagine. Not only are gamers getting older and (hopefully) making more money, they now have kids who want fancy, expensive, and stylish clothes. As for the pixelated garments featured in Loewe’s Spring 2023 collection, there’s no word on whether they’ll be available for sale. However, if this is the case, they will be very expensive. So keep that in mind if you’re dying to get one.
