For Spring, Stuart Vevers gave us soft, buttery leather in neutral colours. For Fall 2012 it was black, black and more black, with a tough edge, a lot of attitude, whilst still staying true to the brand’s heritage.

Stuart described the Loewe woman as noble and aristocratic. He explained that black was heavily featured as he felt it gave the collection a feeling of strength and boldness.

We saw sumptuous coats and jackets in many guises, fur with leather trims, wool with leather pockets, bi-colour haircalf and wool jackets, boxy leather coats with pocket details, shearling-lined capes and a surprising addition of bomber jackets which I loved as it gave the collection a more easy off-the-cuff feel and a youthful touch.

Leather skirts – some with laser cut details, some textured and some pleated –were presented alongside nappa leather pleated dresses and wool separates and silk dresses.

In a sea of black, there were pops of baby pink, navy blue and dark brown.

Key accessories were the lizard wedges (I loved the pink ones), and of course the bags.

The standouts for me were the ‘Arco Baroque’ bag, the pink-lizard ‘Amazona’ clutch and the ‘Amazona Baroque 35’ bag.
