Without a doubt, I count myself as a fan of the Loewe Spring 2012 collection as a whole. Stuart Vevers has done amazing things for the brand in his relatively short time as its creative director, and his vision showed its merit all over the Spanish company’s Paris Fashion Week presentation. I’m just not sure I love the handbags, which are the thing for which Loewe is best known.

I’ve seen enough this season to be pretty sure that the shoulder bag (and the hobo specifically) might be ready for a major comeback, but in this collection, the shape reminded me alternately of Pierre Hardy and Gucci, depending on the bag’s details. While these are certainly the types of accessories that women want to carry, I was hoping to see more work that would further distinguish the brand from its peers as past collections had. On that end, Vevers’ vision seems slightly more muddled, at least for this season.
