Eva Chen’s Pink Mini Elephant Bag.
Is That an Elephant?
Ok, so just like you, when I first caught sight of this cute little bag on Eva Chen’s Instagram account, I had to take a second glance. Indeed it was a bag shaped like an elephant and in the perfect shade of baby pink.
“Hmmm. Interesting”, I thought and didn’t think of it again. Until I received my Nordstrom’s catalog and again there it was in shiny print – Loewe’s Mini Elephant Crossbody Bag.
Let me tell you about the bags. They are touted as origami inspired whimsical elephant shaped bags made of smooth calfskin. The “Mini Elephant” is smaller than the “Punk Elephant” Cross body bag. The Punk Elephant gets the “punk” from the chained zipper that stretches to the elephants nose and the hoop earrings it’s wearing. Both have top zip closure with an adjustable crossbody strap that can be removed. I have to say, they are very cute and hard to resist.
Here are bags available from Nordstroms:
Mini Elephant: 5″W x 6″H x 3 ½”D. (Interior capacity: small.)
23″ – 27″ crossbody strap drop.
Colors: Baby Pink or Black
Punk Elephant: 7 ¾”W x 7 ¾”H x 6″D. (Interior capacity: small.)
10 ½” strap drop; 23 ½” crossbody strap drop.
At the official Loewe’s website, you can find additional colors and varying prices.
Loewe’s Green Elephant Bag.
The Loewe brand began in Madrid, Spain, as a cooperative of leather artisans in 1846. In 1872, Enrique Loewe Roessberg, of German descent, consolidated the workshops in his name. For the last century and half, Loewe has demonstrated its modernity and craftsmanship in leather.
As its popularity grew so did the boutiques, opening them in Tokyo, Hong Kong and London in the 1970-80’s. Since 1970, Loewe’s symbol of the four intertwined Ls, created by artist Vicente Vela, have been used as the brand’s logo and symbol of technical excellence and craftsmanship.
