This year marks the 400th anniversary of the first trading relationship between Japan and Spain and also the 40th anniversary of Loewe in Japan. Two milestone birthdays that needed to be celebrated with a fashionable collaboration. Creative Directors Junya Watanabe and Stuart Vevers came up with the idea of making a capsule collection of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and a reinterpretation of the iconic ‘Amazona’ Loewe bag. The pieces all combine leather, denim and tartan patchwork. You’ve seen the ad on my home page; you’ve seen me carry the bag during fashion week and on instagram; now it’s here in a Look of the Week!
