I love the bag in slide 3. The backpack with the face on it is kind of cool.

I love a tricked out bag, but these have a little too much accoutrements even for me. You can tell that the workmanship is there, but I’m not sure if this brand an compete with Hermes. I’m not getting a luxury vibe from this collection.

I like #10 and #24. But the rest look like they must weigh about 30 lbs. They don’t feel like Hermes competition being Hermes is much more subtle than these. But what do I know? Vogue is the expert.

Is there any function of the multiple handles?

They are slip pockets to fit more things! It is very fun and quirky look. May not be practical but runway bags never really are.

I’m so glad Loewe is finally getting the recognition they deserve. They’ve been doing their thing for a long time and without selling out. Love and respect <3

Really! I would not carry any of them if they gave them to me. What is the deal with 3 handles?

Slide 11 (gold bag) looks like the metallic finish is already wearing off, which could be a good thing if you are hard on your bags–it already looks distressed, no worries! And the multiple handles? Why?

Just because they used the orange colour now they are competing with HERMÈS? Give me a break

They ruined these bags with too many bells and whistles. But the cognac color they use is amazing!

Those extra straps look silly, not luxurious. And I’m really hating the ones that look like giant fortune cookies! Loewe uses wonderful leathers that are best showcased in simple shapes like the Amazona. That’s what Hermès understands so well: the beauty of simplicity instead of gimmicks. Not a competitor yet, as far as I’m concerned!

I think this call by Vogue is a bit of a stretch. The only real rival to Hermes is Delvaux – period… I do love the cat charm in the last pic! The hobos are also worth a second look…

Easily one of the best collections from Paris fashion week! I have to say…I’ve handled many Loewe and Hermes bags so far and the quality for Loewe is definitely up to par with Hermes. These are runway designs so they do have the quirkiness of J.W. Anderson, but the regular line bags they do are amazing! The other commenters here fail to see that.

I notice that not everybody knows Loewe. It was created in 1846. Loewe uses the best leather pieces, only a 5% from the lamb or goat to makes its bags or pieces of leather. These animals live in The Pirineos mountaints in the border between France and Spain (for who doesn’t know it). The quality is high top and the work is perfect in Spain. Several maisons know it becouse they makes the pieces of leather there, such as Louis Vuitton or Chanel, even Stuart Weitzman makes his shoes in Spain. If you really, I say really, touch a Loewe bag you won’t doubt it.

I stopped loving Loewe abut 3 or 4 years ago when they moved away from their core bags. Nothing I see here is remote enticing. Three handles???? Sorry, that’s just stupid.

I love the boxy bag like in 29. Honestly, aren’t we all bored of Hermes yet?

If any brand is going to take a serious run against Hermes, it will be Delvaux. Many Delvaux artisans have worked at Hermes and vice versa. Not Loewe, and definitely not this collection.

Delvaux is great. Although the quality – not so much, unfortunately!

I have a couple of Delvaux. They’re all preloved bags. They are definitely well made. I’m not sure about the current styles, but the ones I own have impeccable stitchings. They all have suede or leather lining.

Many have said the same, but really? Hermes is up there over the moon, over the “attainable” planets…and who knows this brand? Spain, Spain, Spain. But, to be honest, some of these bags are quite nice.

Yes Loewe can perfectly compare with Hermes. This brand was created in 1846 (XIX century!!!!!!). All the bags are made in Spain, yes Spain where Louis Vuitton and Chanel make bags, belts, etc. Wher Stuar Weitzman makes his shoes. Loewe isn´t so famous becouse it isn´t from France or Italy but the quality is in a high top level, they use leather of the goats and lambs from the Pirineos (the mountains betwen Spain and France), and only use 5%, onlu the best. In Japan is so famous that ther are more shops than Gucci or even Hermes, in USA not everybody knows it by marketing. Now is the moment to notice this brand is a Top brand. Who has any doubt, please touch a handbag, then we speak.

Reading the comments here makes me think that people here have a very shallow understanding of fashion. Fashion doesn’t care about looking stupid or weird…

I disagree with “weird” or “stupid” arguments. Lots of things in fashion are “weird” or “stupid” so are those criticisms really valid?

The most functional bag in case you did mention it, is only for number 23. I’m not really sure about the other. But, the craftsmanship is really a ‘something’ for this collection. Equal to Hermes? Nahhh..i disagree.

Seriously? Hermes? Not remotely in the same league. Perhaps Moynat or Bianca Mosca but certainly not Loewe!

Every single one of those bags is hideous and weird-looking, with tons of unnecessary and unattractive bells and whistles. The opposite of the clean, simple lines of most Hermes bags. I agree about Delvaux.

Please don’t misread what the article said. Vogue thinks Loewe is the “avant-garde” competitor to Hermes. Where Hermes focus on simple, classic looks, Loewe pushes boundaries and explores new shapes. If anybody has ever touched a Loewe handbag, you would understand the quality and craftsmanship. I don’t get how people aren’t tired of Hermes yet, it’s a status symbol more than anything else. All I see from Hermes now are beat up Birkins, they look so sad and droopy once they’re worn in. Loewe is fresh, and a total 180 from Hermes.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the creativity of these bags!! Yes, depending on your lifestyle, some may be more practical than others, but I am sooooo tired of seeing variations of the same old handbag! As for the 3 handles, I think this is brilliant! If you look closely, they detach, allowing you to personalize your bag to your own personal style — I love this!! In fact, I think more designers should offer semi-customization of their luxury handbags. Fendi started with their gorgeous shoulder straps and funky charms and Loewe has definitely added another dimension. I can always be assured that Loewe uses top notch materials and workmanship and now the styling has propelled them to the forefront of the avant-garde luxury handbag market as well as the classic one!
