From a brand that needs no introduction, to an icon within the brand that pretty much sells itself, yes I’m talking about Loewe’s Elephant that has been around (and been charming hearts) for seasons. And this season, Creative Director J.W. Anderson gives it another twist (which is pretty much what he does every season with the runway bags) and for F/W16 we’ve got the Punk Elephant Leather Shoulder. Sold out the moment they were launched a couple months back, the elephant sling is now available, earrings and all, on NET-A-PORTER.
Measuring some 20 cm across by 15 cm in height, the elephant with an attitude even comes with its very own nose, I mean, trunk ring, which is then attached to the metal chain sling that’s purely decorative. Then there’s the leather sling which allows you to wear the cutie over the shoulder or across the body, for a look that’s truly quirky and oh-so-fun. Priced at USD1282 via NET-A-PORTER, you’ll also find a wide selection of other Loewe lovelies via NAP, from tinier leather elephants that double up as coin wallets (there’s one in Red, and another in Yellow), runway bags and of course, that wool cat sweater that everyone is talking about.
Yes, It’s a great bestseller in Asia and America, in Europe less. But the real bomb that sells is the Panda bag. It has sold out several times in Madrid. Thanks for the info Bagaholicboy!
