Last night, Jonathan Anderson welcomed fashion’s great and good into Casa Loewe, the brand’s experiential new London flagship that has been designed to evoke the home of a collector. Among the guests were Vogue contributing editor and Hollywood stylist Elizabeth Saltzman, and her client Jodie Comer. What’s a store opening without a buzzed-about actor to get the paps snapping?
Comer played up to her fashion-forward character Villanelle in Killing Eve, wearing a structured blazer with bold chequered pattern and flared hem, paired with black silk trousers, Penelope Chilvers heels and Lilian von Trapp earrings. In a sea of famous faces – including A$AP Rocky, Jack O’Connell and Edie Campbell – all admiring the work of the 14 artists that populate the space alongside the fashion, Comer held her own, congratulating Anderson in one of his autumn/winter 2019 pieces.
Saltzman has been styling Comer since the pilot of the BBC spy drama aired and her career trajectory rocketed. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who wrote the first series and is also styled by Saltzman, put the two creatives in touch and, needless to say, each met their sartorial match. “Talk about one to watch, grab hold of and bow down to,” Saltzman told Vogue ahead of the Golden Globes, when Comer fell in love with a Victor & Rolf dress and had her first major red-carpet moment. At that point, “Jodie hadn’t even had the time to reap the benefits of being on such a fantastic show and been able to get involved with fashion.” Now, with season two around the corner, things have certainly changed.
