Get Loewe

One of my Spain's most prestigious and established fashion houses, and famous for its high quality leather handbags, Loewe hit the catwalks this year with Hai Park and Chanel Iman showcasing it's Spring/Summer fashions. Though often forgotten by the mainstream fashion press, Loewe's latest collection has certainly caught my eye.


Exuding Spanish city chic, (what else would you expect from a label that was official supplier to the Spanish Royal family from 1905), this collection is all about the sophistication of elegant tailoring, with fun assessories and gold embellishments.


I love the structured look of these outfits, the eye catching button detail denotes military and utility chic, bringing the nautical trends of S/S 08 back for another stylish round. Soft fabrics and interesting colours and textures keep the look playful, while sleek, Spanish tailoring keeps things sharp. I love the denim utility mini dress and pocket detail all in one, whose 'gas attendant by day, fighter jet pilot by night' striking silhouette, adds an 'All American' feel to the collection, while the gold piping, eye catching buttons and belt details provides glamour. Hint: the over sized shades and statement bag help too.

If you've been following thus far, you'll know that I'm a sucker for a hat, and I've fallen in love with these military style caps. Designed by legendary milliner Stephen Jones, these quirky caps come in black and white satin, and a radish red suede, all adorned with black piping, gold buttons and black brims. Styled with city tailoring, and playful, pilot-esque suits (below), I would fling one of these caps on with anything, as a focal point for a day to day jeans and t-shirt outfit, or as a quirky cherry on top a summer dress. Check out the close ups below, how would you wear your Loewe cap?


I'd also like to give big love and thanks to Dooder City, Cherish jd and Fashion Moment, who have all given my blog an award this week. As a new kid on the blog, I'm honoured to be getting so much positive feedback from my followers, knowing that people are appreciating what I write means a lot to me. I'm getting a bit gushy now, so before I drift into dangerous cheese territory, I'm going to cut things short: thank you so much for showing me so much love, also thanks to everyone who reads and comments on Clothes Before Hoes, have a great weekend - peace, love and fashion to all of you. For more love, check out this feel good and romantic blog.
