Jonathan Anderson Shares His Favorite Gardens Across the Globe

Each fragrance arrives in a bright cardboard box featuring Erwan Frotin-lensed imagery, partly inspired by the work of the 19th-century photographer Kazuma Ogawa.

For Anderson, who collects images of gardens and stores them on his phone, this is all perhaps setting the ground for his ultimate calling: “My fantasy is to one day do a garden properly,” the budding plantsman says, as his mind begins to wander to his vision for his own plot of land at his country house in Norfolk, England. Until then, he’ll be lighting up the distinct aroma of his go-to Sweet Pea, he adds: “Sometimes, on a Friday, there’s nothing better than opening a new candle and a bottle of wine.”

Below, Jonathan Anderson sounds off on the gardens that he turns to for inspiration, from a verdant Moroccan oasis to a Noguchi-designed plot in Paris.

“I always love Great Dixter in [East Sussex,] England. It’s fantastic. It’s probably one of the most important gardens in terms of contemporary ways of laying out borders.”

“I also love the Noguchi garden in Maison Unesco in Paris [the site of Loewe’s spring 2015 collection and spring 2020 publication] because of the ease and harmony of its design.”

The two-and-a-half-acre Jardin Majorelle is home to an array of cacti, palm trees, bamboo, coconut palms, and carob trees.

“One of the most amazing gardens is the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech, the Saint Laurent cactus garden. It’s a completely different type of garden. It’s abstract to the climate that I live in here. There is such a fantasy about that, as cliche as that is.”

“Houghton Hall [in Norfolk, England] has an amazing walled garden. You feel like you’re moving from one room into another. There’s nothing better than a walled garden… that encapsulated world.”

The medicinal plot in Kew’s Royal Botanic Gardens partly inspired the new collection.

“The Royal Botanic Gardens, just outside of London, has an incredible living plant collection that has been an inspiration for the [home scents] collection.”
