I’m a big fan of anything made of natural vachetta leather, so you can imagine my delight upon spying these Loewe natural calf Papelle bags! They come in three sizes–21″ ($1,018), 28″ ($1,275) and 35″ ($1,275)–and have a structured shape to them. Be forewarned, however: these bags are precious to say the least. Any spot of precipitation and the patina is scarred–unless that’s the look you like. I prefer my leather of this kind to remain flawless, which means if I bought this, it would sit in its box for years and never see the light of day. It’s cool though, right? Kind of reminds me of those Whole Foods paper shopping bags. But much more chic.
