  • Love the dress!

    the bag is quirky but more on the gimmicky side which is Loewe’s main stay!

    • annon

      I still miss the old Loewe

      • Lisa

        Me too. Wish they’d do more to promote the Amazona as a Loewe classic.

      • psny15

        yeah amazona is a classic bag but it never took off

      • Lisa

        Which never made sense to me since the duffel is such an easy shape. Seems mostly to do with branding: LV Speedy is a classic but the Saint Laurent duffel is beautiful, suede-lined instead of fabric and really well made but didn’t take off either.

      • psny15

        everyone makes the boston bag – gucci, fendi, ysl but people continue to carry the ugly LV SPEEDY

      • Justice J. Srisuk

        Agreed. The Amazona 23 would be a bestseller if it had a Prada nameplate hardware or Gucci logos embossed on the leather. Loewe needs time to develop the name recognition of other brands. For now, they’re simply a bag-lover’s best kept secret!

      • Lisa

        Very true! Their bags are so well made but they weren’t sold in the U.S. until fairly recently and I don’t think you can order from their website either.

    Slightly off topic, but does anyone know what happened to the Loewe Arreos saddle bag (2012)? It was such a cool design but I only saw it in off-white on Moda Operandi and passed. Probably should have bought it :-(

    SO, question: what exactly IS the triangular luggage-tag-sorta-thingy on the front. Is it a locking mechanism to keep the bag closed? Is it a mirror or some kind of key fob? It’s a cute little crossbody, whatever it is.

    Oh, apparently I’ve been saying Loewe wrong. It’s “low-eh-vay”. Guess I’m oh-so-declasse!

    • TheModMazza

      The triangle is the “lock”.

    • Sparky

      You’re fine on the pronunciation. Don’t feel embarrassed. The SA at Barney’s can’t pronounce it. She says “Lowes” as in the hardware store. When I pronounced it correctly with the soft “b” she looked down her nose at me. Stupid snob. I thought to myself “honey, I’ve BEEN to Spain many times. I know how to pronounce it”.

      • Lisa

        Haha! During an online purchase, I had someone tell me I was buying a Bo-LIDE when I asked about my Bo-LEED. Despite having studied French for years, I was discombobulated enough to ask the native Frenchman who helped me with my next Hermès in-store purchase to confirm the pronunciation. Yep, first SA had no idea how to pronounce it.

        That would’ve gotten me steamingly mad! I’m Thai, and sriracha hot sauce is named after a seaside resort city is southern Thailand despite the fact that the company that produces it is US-Vietnamese-owned. Anyway, every time I order sriracha, I pronounce it correctly (“see-raa-chaa”, not “s-ree-raa-chaa”),
        only to be “corrected” by the waiter and waitress. I’m like – Seriously?
        YOU’RE gonna school me on how to pronounce a word in my own language?
        Sometimes it’s easier to just grin and bear it…

    Loewe bags are not so famous in US by marketing but in Europe (France and Spain) and Japan are well known. The quality is better than most of great brands and it use leather (Vuitton monogram not).
    In the last times with JW Anderson the bags are in Bergdorf and Neiman in NY. If You can touch the leather do it becouse you notice the difference!!!
