I Loewe You…

loewe_amazona_toteLoewe’s Amazona tote, is functional, bling-less and quietly luxurious. I love the pop of orange on this classic cult bag. It’s timeless, deceptively simple boxy proportions. The Amazona’s evocative social relevance is what makes it a rival to Hermès’s Kelly bag, Chanel’s 2.55 or Vuitton’s Speedy. Launched in 1975, when Spain emerged blinking from the dark, patriarchal Franco era, it was the first home-grown luxury bag that offered function and status to newly independent women experiencing the novelty of travelling and working by themselves. They needed a capacious bag to hold all their belongings, one that would remind them and everyone else how well they were doing.

I love this Loewe
