Glamorously Madrid ... Loewe F/W 09 - 10

Stuart Vevers and Loewe keep getting better nowadays. Starting from that old world-inspired fall/winter collection in an old Parisian opera house about a year ago to now, there is always something good and timeless one could expect from him, aside of the brand’s inevitable lust worthy leather bags.

At Paris Fashion Week recently, the British bag master presented his new collection ready-to-wear collection for Loewe to the delight of front row seated A-listers. Utilizing the most out of leather, Vevers has crafted out several pieces out of the buttery soft fabric sporting a rich hue of glazed black that oozes uncontested charm and superb sophistication.

Think of luxurious outerwears worn over to combat the unforgiving winter winds, classic long-sleeved dress with knee-length hem, trench and even shirt.
Featuring hints of the nineties and timeless Spanish style, an extra approach to classiness can be seen through application of fur and feather trimmings on jackets and skirts.

However, if the leathers still couldn’t provide you the sort of warmth you’re expecting, Vevers even throw in an added bonus into the soon-to-be-released collection – oversized soft cashmere scarves. What’s more, expect to see them simply being emblazoned with Loewe Madrid logo on it, bigger than the usual.

While black is known to dominate the entire collection, an occasional appearance of lively colours has been injected into the line to give it more happening appeal.

For example, there’s one short puffed sleeved dress drenched in coral and looks dazzling with its velvety texture; short sleeved shirt in duotone yellow stripes paired with vertical striped sequined pencil skirt fringed at the hem, ochre elbow-length leather gloves, and a satin coral belted sheath dress with scalloped front details.

And talking about dresses, the last batch of evening dresses in black is truly eye-catching. They may look simple since they were not drenched in extra embellishments of sort but who needs all that when you can shine among the rest just by draping yourself in an austere but glamorous piece.

Nevertheless, prêt-a-porter aside, among the accessories highlight of the brand for the upcoming season, which will start in another six months, would be oversized and slouchy hobos, plump plumed evening bag, studded Amazona bag with croc finish, and strappy coral leather sandals.

Loewe’s fall/winter 2009 ready-to-wear and accessories collection will be available at all Loewe stores by early fall.
