Loewe Dunas Bag: A Hobo to Hope For

As much as I love the luscious lambskin Loewe has, this calfskin is far more durable and resilient – and still incredibly, pliably soft and lightweight. I feel more comfortable using a bag with grainy texture everyday, with no fear of ruination. For me, the larger size makes sense, while the smaller version is really cute for petite girls.

Top 5 Suitcase Shapes: Some Structure In Your Life

Put away your slouchy hobo for the time being: it’s hip to be square. You might not be going anywhere, but it’s time to start toting a suitcase: it’s all about structured totes that look like classic luggage. And in some cases (like See by Chloé and The Row), they actually function like a piece […]

Loewe Amazona Leather and Suede Tote: The Loewe-Down

All you snobs know I’ve long been a fan of Madrid-based luxury house Loewe and their understated way with luxury, so it’s about time they finally hit the American big leagues on Net-a-Porter! No surprise their bags are already selling like hotcakes on the site. If you’re still new to the lure of Loewe and […]

Penelope Cruz: Flying Flamenco

As a globetrotting celeb, Penelope Cruz knows that it’s best to keep it casual when running around airports. More power to women who can rock 6” heels and short dresses when traveling, but I just can’t get behind it! My flight style is like Penelope’s – loose-fitting and warm clothes. The Pan Am glamour-puss days […]

Loewe Fall 2012 Collection: Spanish Romance

  Stuart, oh, Stuart, how you make a snob’s heart pound with desire. The Creative Director, who is a London transplant, has gotten deeply in touch with the classic Spanish house of Loewe – on an emotional level, it seems – for Fall 2012. Age-old leather techniques have been appropriated by Vevers for a thrilling […]

Snob Exclusive: LOEWE Bags on Moda Operandi tomorrow!

I am a huge fan of designer Stuart Vevers and love what he’s done with Loewe, one of the world’s premier and most luxurious brands. In fact, the Loewe boutique in Madrid is a favorite store of mine (from scarves, belts, to drool worthy bags and ready-to-wear, they have it all!), but back home in […]

Something Worth Gossiping About: Leighton Carries the Loewe Amazona Bag

We always knew Blair was a major bag snob at heart. On the set of “Gossip Girl” on Friday, Leighton Meester’s ultimate uptown princess livened up a cream-centric winter outfit with a punchy blast of a bag. The Loewe Amazona, which has been around since the seventies, is cementing its status once again as a […]

Loewe Spring/Summer 2012 Collection: Loewe Hits a High Note

In the four short years since Stuart Vevers became the Creative Director at Loewe (after leaving Mulberry), he has delivered one hit after another and revolutionized the Madrid-based luxury house. After viewing the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Vevers is fast becoming one of my favorite bag designers. Last year’s versatile May bag has been copied by […]

Loewe “Flamenco” Bag: Loewering the Bar

Madrid’s venerable house of Loewe has produced luxury goods since 1846. And it has recently been on a real handbag hot streak! (The “May” bag is utterly divine!). But I’m sorry to say their latest effort, the “Flamenco” bag, flops – literally. A modern take on their emblematic eighties bag, it is, admittedly, a nice […]
