We love it when our favourite brands come together and in the case of the lovely Katie Hillier and Spanish muy chic brand Loewe it feels a bit like coming home! That's because Hillier and Loewe's Creative Director Stuart Vevers have known each other since their studies at the University of Westminster and are good buddies, which means that when it came to collaborating on a limited edition of three iconic Loewe bag designs, including the Amazona and the Ida, it was, as Vevers himself said, 'an obvious and fun thing to do!' For Hillier, ‘Stuart is a very good friend and hugely talented, one of the best accessories designers in the world. And of course it was such good fun!’
Called 'Loewe with a wink', it features the classic and elegant designs the Madrid-based brand is known and loved for but given the Hillier treatment! We are huge fans of Katie's designs for designers like Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham but it is her own jewellery line that we're completely in love with. Her gold bunny necklaces are too cute for words and now, bunny and friends (a snail and mouse!) can be found on Loewe's bags, replacing the classic padlocks. And if that wasn't enough to end our Monday on a high, here's an even cuter video showing the little guys getting on a plane and....oh, you'll see!
