Loewe Autumn Winter 2012
‘Modernity’ and ‘tradition’ – the two words that not only capture the spirit of Loewe, but also the tone of their new collection. The Spanish luggage wear giants have combined these two notions to create a line, that exemplify’s their craft, in creating goods that work well within a contemporary life.
The collection is dominated by the brands love for leather. The expertise that the house possesses have shone through. Using a vast selection of fabrics, they have created a range of powerfully dominant outerwear. Featuring a car coat made from grained nubuck, bonded with shearling and a cropped parka in lizard bonded with napa. These pieces blend seamlessly with a range of blazers, made with the most elusive of cashmeres and wools.
The palette stays true to the roots of Loewe; browns dance around with sandy golds and natural wood tones of mahogany and walnut. However, submerged behind this dark order are optimum shades of navy and burgundy, representing the passionate red of the Spanish flag – seen so commonly in bullfighters costume. Shirts and ties stay true to this bold nature this time in Jacquard prints.
The bags for the new season meet the wants needs of the man that travels. The Valencia line features a 24-hour bag, a double-zipped style and a third with flap closure. All of which features pockets and compartments that help enhance their practicality. An array of excellence by any means of the imagination.
