Loewe has steadily and consistently been making its mark on the handbag world under the direction of Jonathan Anderson. The brand’s desirability continues to grow, and while once it was more under-the-radar, beloved by mostly those in the know, these days it’s more mainstream than ever before. Known for its quality and attention to craft, each and every piece that Loewe releases oozes intense attention to detail.
Last year, the brand hopped on the archival revival train, re-releasing one of its most beloved bags, the Amazona. Its sharp, clean, and classic silhouette immediately felt poised for success. Originally launched in 1975, the iconic Amazona bag hit the scene once again late in 2021, reimagined with new dimensions and materials, but still focusing on Loewe’s unparalleled craftsmanship.
This year, fresh for the fall season, it is revamped once again, in a perfect square shape with even smaller proportions. If you love statement-making mini bags, buckle up, this one is for you!
The Mini, Mighty, Amazona 16
Named after female warriors of Greek Mythology, the Amazona 16 is mini, but true to its name, it still is mighty. With dimensions of 5.5″ x 6.3″ x 3.3,” it will fit a regular iPhone 13 inside, and an interior slit pocket allows for an ID, and credit cards, so you can skip the wallet and save some space. The Amazona is designed to be on-trend with its small proportions, but its soft, semi-structured shape allows for your necessities to comfortably fit inside.
Wear it with the crossbody strap for a hands-free, no fuss, barely there bag (it’s incredibly lightweight too!), or carry it daintily via the tiny top handles. Shown in soft, smooth Nappa calfskin ($2,650) and Loewe’s signature Anagram jacquard ($2,250), the options are perfect for fall, and I’ve got an orange crush on this one.
