The concept of cute is something that always sells well, as long as it is done tastefully. And in the case of the new Loewe + Katie Hillier limited edition collection, there’s definitely no doubt that these pieces will be well received.
Designed in collaboration with accessories designer Kate Hillier, a fan of the brand who describes the iconic Amazona as ‘a classic bag for cool girls’. With that said, she didn’t want to interfere with the designs of existing bags, but decided to add her own touch, replacing Loewe’s signature padlock with her very own animal designs.
An example of her own work is this set of 3 rings, consisting of pieces Bunny Loves, Glowing Heart and Bubble Heart, a stunning ensemble of luxury jewellery.
Naturally, for the Loewe Ida (the shoulder satchel), her first animal-inspired padlock was the Rabbit. In fact, all the 3 bags in the collection in Navy (be it the Ida, the Amazona28 or the classic Amazona) will come with the rabbit padlock.
For all the 3 bags in Pink, the accompanying animal will be the Mouse.
Which in my honest opinion is somehow cuter than the Rabbit. Besides the 2 aforementioned animals, there is a 3rd (the Snail) that will come with all the bags in Red.
Available exclusively online now at Colette, they are priced at EUR790, EUR1100 and EUR1600 for the Ida, the Amazona28 and the classic Amazona respectively, before shipping and taxes.
