I’m pleased as peas to be doing this post right now, seeing how the great Stuart Vevers has finally answered my prayers for a more comprehensive bag collection for men. From the Fall-Winter 2009 Mens Loewe collection (actually the pre-fall collection, which will be coming out pretty soon), there are at least 6 lust-worthy pieces worth breaking the piggy bank for (though there were some middling canvas totes and thin messengers that I skipped over).
First up, we’ve got the something for the traditionalists, the suede Loewe Amazona Weekender in Black (shown above).
And herein lies my conundrum. I’m actually quite convinced that one of these 3 gorgeous babies will be going home with me pretty soon, question is, which will it be? Will be it the Loewe Amazona Weekender in refined calf leather? When it’s open and slouchy it certainly looks like a doctor’s bag, which I love.
Then there is the Loewe Pia, which is similar to the Amazona, but with the top wide open. I do adore the belt buckle clasp closure and the small details like the leather clochette and padlock. What do I do? Oh what do I do?
And last but not least, the Loewe Anagram Weekender in Black, which appeals to the monogram-loving boy in me. Yes it’s cluttered, it’s full of Loewe’s logos, but somehow it still manages to stay regal and dignified, which are greatly helped by its gold hardware finishes.
Yes, I’m in trouble.
