Valentino My Rockstud Striped Frame and Loewe Amazona 75 Small Leather Shoulder Bags: Pass with Flying Colors
There are girls who get dressed and then just toss a bag over their shoulder as an afterthought. (Clearly, I am not one of those girls.) And then there’s kind of girl who lives – and dresses – vicariously through her bags.
Loewe’s much-lauded Puzzle bag, the one that’s a favorite of Julianne Moore, is an inspired design that’s about as original as bags come. The pieces are attached in such a way that creates a 3D effect, and the front panel (with the zipper pocket) is like a pyramid.
This little bag is so freaking adorable! I’ve already been on a round bag kick to begin with, but this one is special to me. I always love Loewe’s buttery-soft nappa leather and such a shape, lightly scrunched and all mush-able, really relishes the suppleness.
The Loewe Puzzle may have lost the title of Vogue’s It Bag of the Year to a micro-sized Fendi (by only 3%!), but it’s still large on my radar and I’m not the only one lusting after its perfect pieces…
