Loewe: I made this
Masters of Leather on Nowness.com.
Loewe has done a lovely job of highlighting three of this year’s biggest macro trends – craft, heritage and luxury – in this short film by Matthew Donaldson for Nowness (ah ‘fashion film’, there’s another tick). Using Richard Avedon’s In The American West as a visual reference (oh to have a copy of this collectable tome), it’s a celebration of the leather workers’ graft and craft in creating the signature Amazona bag.
Stealth luxury has been back on topic recently and the Amazona bag is a good example of a non-shouty investment bag. If you read the short interview with Stuart Vevers on Nowness, you’ll see the origins of this ’24 hour bag’ are also quite interesting…
