Loewe S/S17 Lantern Bag In Tan & Gold

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: LOEWE

With a brand like Loewe, you’ll sometimes need a sense of humour (preferably large), especially when faced with something like Spring-Summer 2017‘s Lantern Bag. It’s definitely not a conventional piece, but it will start conversations, like the one I had going in my own head when I first chanced upon it some weeks back.

The inspiration behind it is decidedly simple, a bag shaped like a lantern that’s almost gourd-like, it starts narrow on the top before it extends in the middle, and then tapering down towards the end. What’s more difficult was the thought process of making something traditionally crafted out of paper (or fabric) which is easy, but swopping that out for leather instead.

In other words, it must have been a huge exercise in applying everything Loewe had in their leather-crafting arsenal and know-how techniques just to figure out how to make it completely in a material that’s pretty tough to work with in the first place. I could only imagine the hours that went into moulding the shape needed to resemble a lantern, before the pieces are stitched together to form that distinctive shape.

Which is exactly what I respect most about the Spanish luxury house, their will to try something that’s not easy and honing their skills, instead of doing yet another simple shape with a sling or two and selling it for bucketloads of money.

And while it will not appeal to everyone (especially with its SGD8690price tag), this is proof that craftsmanship and ingenuity are alive and well at the Spanish luxury house.

Love It or Leave It: The Loewe Elephant Shoulder Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Loewe‘s animal-shaped coin purses and pouches have long been popular with shoppers, and it’s not rocket science to figure out why: not only are Loewe’s leather goods uniformly well-made, but the pouches take something that’s normally pretty boring and make it a lot more fun without impacting its practicality at all. On top of that, committing to a panda-shaped pouch, for example, feels less bold than carrying a larger one as a handbag. But if the bag version were exactly right, would you be up for it?

In the handful of seasons he’s spent at Loewe, Jonathan Anderson has continued to expand the brand’s existing profile as a favorite among fashion insiders. Much of Anderson’s work is inventive and fresh-feeling in a fashion landscape full of retro rehashes, but he does it in a way that doesn’t make Loewe’s pieces difficult to wear or use. The Loewe Elephant Bag is a prime example of that: it’s weird, but in a good and well-considered way, and it’ll do just as good a job carrying your stuff as any other small crossbody.

A multicolored-stripe elephant shouldn’t feel as restrained or as tailored as this one does, but somehow, it totally works for me. It’s be an adorable little weekend option, especially during warm weather.

LOEWE AMAZONA MULTIPLICATION BAG

Categories:Other Brands

loewe-amazona-multiplication-bag

Every designer brand has one particular bag that stands-out. It’s usually the bag that has been invented for a decade (or more) ago– and the longer the history, the better.

Usually such a bag is considered a ‘classic’ or an ‘iconic’, especially because it has been time-tested, it has gone through the bad and the good times.

Oh and more importantly, the bag is regularly seen hanging out with top celebrities – dining, partying, traveling or just out-and-about.

Louis Vuitton has the speedy bag, Chanel has the reissue 2.55 bag and Loewe…, Loewe has the Amazona Bag.

Introduced in 1965, the Loewe Amazona Bag is more than an accessory to store your essentials. The history as well as its name represents the feminine freedom, signifying female strength.

Besides that, the elegant shape, the lavish leather and the craftsmanship have all contributed to the popularity and success of this beauty.

And today… Loewe reinvented the Amazona Bag again. Meet the Loewe Amazona Multiplication Bag, and with a little guess, we know where the name is inspired from.

loewe-amazona-multiplication-bag-6

The Loewe Amazona Bag is basically two amazona for one. It also follows, what has been very famous lately, a bag with an iconic front-pocket.

Double bag means double space. It’s an icon among icons – it crates an optical illusion as the bag itself is built upon another.

And obvious, the interior is luxuriously large, it can easily be used as a travel bag. The material is strong – crafted from calf leather and embossed Anagram.

The design is minimalistic and all the ‘classic’ elements are unaltered.

It features large interior zippered pocket, a large shoulder strap and a nametag in calf leather. Measuring 36.5 x 23 x 16 cm, and for those that are worry about the weight – it’s 1.46 kg. Priced at $3250 USD, €2500 euro, £2125 GBP, S$4850 SGD, $26600 HKD, ¥370000 JPY via Loewe boutiques.

A new stylish Loewe Bag is in town and all bag lovers out there should be on high alert, since this might be the newest “IT” bag of the month. Introducing Loewe’s Joyce Shoulder Bag.

First off the bat, can we just say that we love the fact that the Loewe logo is apparent on this bag? The golden Loewe logo in front gave this bag an added edge over all the other black leather bags out there in the market.

Don’t let its size intimidate you as there is a slot pocket inside to keep small items safe, and there’s also enough space to store all your essentials.

It has an adjustable shoulder strap thus making it an ideal cross body bag, and a magnetic-tab fastening for easy access!

Loewe Flamenco Small Petal Bag

Loewe Flamenco Small Petal Bag

If you’ve had the pleasure of owning a Loewe bag, you will understand the instant addiction to their soft, delicious, luscious leather that comes with it. You will also be obsessed with this petal-accented version of their classic Flamenco bag.

A bucket bag is a bucket bag, you say? Not here. In the hands of Loewe, it’s a work of art. An essentially simple drawstring style is completely revamped with a group of petals that gather together on top when cinched. A colorful bouquet of bold leather blossoms: the effect is more of a thing of beauty than a piece of function. But don’t think you can’t have both. At the heart of this brand are bags that are meant to be worn, and worn a lot. This small bucket packs a punch in both statement and storage. It’s especially good as a swingy wristlet; I love it so much. And no, it has not escaped me that the petals, in fact, look more like fortune cookies than flowers!
