Loewe Amazona in Mink made from refined calf – £1295
Loewe Amazona in Black made from suede/classic calf – £1295
If you’re thinking of investing in a luxury leather handbag and you’re not sure which one to go for, you really can’t go wrong with the Loewe Amazona.
Named after the strong woman it was designed for, the Amazona epitomises the new found liberty of the Spanish female in post Franco Spain. This bag is a symbol of equality and independence and should really be bought by a woman, for herself.
Dropping a grand or in some cases nearer two or even three for a handbag (ahem, thank you Chanel) is a serious business. You need to make sure that what you buy is fantastic quality. That it’s classic, elegant and will never go out of fashion. Ever.
Your choice of bag has to be worth the dough you’re handing over for it and I think this bag really is.
I absolutely adore this painting. From the moment I first saw it something about it engaged and absorbed me and I wanted to be living in the painting. I think. Or did I want to be the woman in the painting?
A woman who can spend her morning calmly reading the newspaper in a royal blue sundress, hair neatly tied back, white pearls in place while sipping her coffee in the sunshine is a creature of such perfection that she inspires awe and fascination in me.
So elegant, she epitomes Riviera chic. She makes me want to go and buy some white sunglasses just to emulate her, but I have to remind myself that I don’t have the deep tan of the lady in the painting, nor do I have her poise, posture or dreamy lifestyle. So I resisted the urge.
But I’d still like a canvas print of the painting. So I can occasionally look up at it and join her and her perfection in the Riviera.
