My New Loewe Font Bag and How I Accessorize It

It's a charmed life for my new bag!

The way every single trend comes back around is a given. You should never assume otherwise. This summer, the accessories for your accessory remain one of the most significant moments we are seeing in the fashion world, and I already shared that Loewe has you covered.

While the brand me gifted this Loewe Font Bag, I decided to dress it up. I headed to the Loewe store last week to bring this bag to life!

Disclosure: Loewe gifted this Loewe Font Bag. The charms were purchased by Megs.

The Font Bag

But let’s take a minute to look at the bag itself. Of course, raffia bags for summer are a major theme that we will see repeated, and Loewe always offers a really exciting collection with Paula’s Ibiza. This year is no different, and one of the most simplistic but alluring designs from the brand is its Font Tote.

While it comes in a variety of sizes and colors, the natural hue is as, well, natural as it comes. The black Loewe logo stands out, so if that isn’t for you, I’d say to look for one of the many other raffia bags the brand offers.

This bag also comes with an adjustable leather shoulder strap, which sits nicely over my shoulder and gives this added luxe element.

I have the small size, which I love because it is just big enough to fit a water bottle and my iPhone. Those of you who know me also know I will not go anywhere without a water bottle.

Sure, this bag is simple, but it is also highly usable. It’s light, versatile, and works seamlessly into your summer wardrobe. With the strap, it’s perfect for day trips, and without the strap, it’s a different look. It fits just enough of your necessities.

The Tropical Accessories

I couldn’t get the quirky, fun bag charms from Loewe out of my head from the moment I covered them on the site. I have always had a penchant for that joyful side of Loewe, and I felt the need to lean into it more.

I drove down to the Miami Design District Loewe store and had a few lovely sales associates help me by laying out all the charms they had in store that day.

The felt charms, while cute, didn’t match the vibe I was going for, but then the associate let me know they had just a few of the brand-new charms in, and that’s when we got into the business.

I first settled on this pink, white, and orange exotic bird charm. I love pink and orange together, and this gave me that element of playfulness I was seeking for my bag.

But then my can’t stop, won’t stop shopping side came out and started personifing the charm, and I wound up telling the sales associate my bird friend needed another friend.

I sounded crazy, I know. As luck would have it, a green parrot charm (the last in-store) had just been put out on display, and I found these two to be the perfect pair.

The best part of these charms is that I can add them to other bags, which will entirely change the look and feel, so I thought I would get as much use of these two bird friends as possible.

If this bag didn’t say LOEWE in giant letters, nobody would want it. This is just a bag designed to show off one’s spending power. That’s not style and that’s not fashion.

I completely agree. I’m “over” brands slapping their name or logo on NO design (and even worse sometimes, subpar materials and construction) and expecting us to pay thousands.

I have zero need to be a walking billboard or to try to “show off” the fact that I wasted a few thousand on absolutely nothing special.

I actually think it’s still a really cute bag without the logo at least for me – albeit without the logo people wouldn’t pay as much for it but I think you can say that about almost anything including food items, that’s why some people prefer to buy generics etc.

Sure, some people will spend more on anything to shore up their self worth. IMO that doesn’t mean slapping a logo / brand on a what is a essentially a nothing design is ever worth paying for.

It’s a raffia bag, not leather. If you had taken this bag before saying what you say, you could rectify it. If you saw the details with the leather strap or the structure, I don’t think you would criticise it like that. I know is raffia.
If Dior book tote doesn’t say the brand in big letters it would be another cotton bag.

uh? Who said it was leather? Also, I have seen this bag IRL, which is why I stand by my comment. Why do you constantly defend this brand on every post??

I like the accessories a lot. The bag? Not so much. That giant branding is unfortunate.

Loewe used to be the epitome of luxury and elegance. Now they have fallen prey to the extreme logo trend. This bag looks cheap and tacky. I wouldn’t want it if it was free.

Bernard Arnault laughing all the way to the bank knowing that people are buying this $5 bag for thousands just because it says LOEWE in giant letters. FML

THIS! It’s as if people have forgotten bags can actually have unique design and just pay for the brand to be slapped across every thing.

This type of bags is only for people who want to show off their spending power by flashing big logos… why else would anyone want to carry this basic bag with the brand name visible from space? Nouveau riche par excellence.

Oh, so quiet luxury is over and we’re back to gigantic logos?

It would be nice if we could not have either extreme of boring design or loud logos. Whatever happened to great design that spoke for itself?

Loewe always has too big logos.

I just tried to “shop the story” for the pink bird charm and it is NOT $500, it is $590. Big difference!

No worries! 500 was stretching it for me but since I have been obsessing over this charm for weeks, I decided to buy it. But then $590 became $647 with tax and I just couldn’t 🙁 But it is wonderful.

Don’t feel bad. Anyone who can easily spend $647 on a bag charm doesn’t live in the real world.

Let’s not be classist. The “real world” isn’t defined by inability to pay for something. 🙄

Maybe, but this is Purseblog where people spend thousands on bags that others may perceive as frivolous purchases. So, perhaps a majority of us “don’t live in the real world”?

Thanks for the up-close look at this bag and the charms. I bought two other bags from Paula’s Ibiza, but I also like this one in the darker rust brown. The charms are quite expensive but very creative and cute. I think I’ll eventually splurge on one or two.
