If ever you questioned that Fall 2012 is all about black, look no further than the Loewe Fall 2012 show. Not only was the collection as a whole rooted heavily in every New Yorker’s favorite color, but the bags were almost all inky black leather. There were peeks of navy, ivory and baby pink here and there, but noir ruled Loewe’s night in Paris.
Also of note were the materials used; on both the brand’s classic Amazona and larger, less structured satchels, creative director Stuart Vevers used a leather with a heavier texture and more slouch than we’ve seen from the brand in the past. The effect is much more casual, which will likely appeal to the younger, more leisurely woman that Loewe is trying to reach with its creative overhaul in the wake of Vevers’ arrival. As the seasons go by, he’s looking like a more and more inspired hire for the brand.
