As pampeano proudly unveils its autumn/winter collection of Aztec designed accessories, we share these stunning new pieces and also reflect on this pivotal season when the countryside looks glorious and there is a frisson of excitement in the air as we transition to a new season. For many, Autumn conjures up simpler times, perhaps when we were children ourselves: going back to school after a long summer, harvest festivals, collecting conkers on walks in the countryside, admiring Mother Nature's palette of burnished autumnal colours and enjoying the sound and feel of fallen leaves crunching under our feet.
pampeano makes its autumn debut
As we reach the winter solstice, there is also the anticipation of Halloween, Guy Fawkes' Night, and then the magical run up to Christmas, with all the hope and pleasure it brings. Autumn is also a key date in the fashion world as the trends and styles for the colder and shorter days make their debut.
pampeano's bright, bold autumn collection
At pampeano, we share our excitement of the season with the launch of a new collection of luxury bright and bold on-trend leather pieces which tick all the boxes this autumn. Our collection of this season's must-have items are emanating with pampeano's trademark South American influences and quality hand-crafted expertise.
The essential carry-all tote
First up as pampeano's editor's choice is the new Trapecio tote bag. Hand-crafted from a rich pebble-grain soft leather, it offers enough space to carry all your essentials so that you are always prepared for what the day may bring. Pair with the matching 'Noche' pouch and don't forget a thick cashmere scarf from pampeano as the Autumn days begin. The magnet closure keeps all your important possessions safe and secure.
pampa diamonds evoke the high peaks of the Andes
The Semana tote is a stunning and exquisitely hand-crafted bag made from a buttery soft, rich pebbled leather and features a handstitched 'pampa' diamond design on the front, which has been intricately woven into the leather by skilled artisans using vibrantly coloured and high-quality wax-dipped saddlery threads.
The bag is available in three colours: pale grey, azure blue and chocolate brown - with a choice of hues for the hand-embroidered diamond motif (beige, cream, pink, blue and navy). The pampa diamond is pampeano's signature found throughout each Aztec-inspired design. The shape and edges of the diamond are reminiscent of the steep slopes and high peaks of the majestic Andes mountain range, which dominate the Argentine skyline and La Pampa region where pampeano was born.
This well-proportioned bag contains three internal compartments to keep you on track through the day, and is also the perfect size to carry on through the night. It measures 26cm H x 35cm W (at widest point) x 16cm D and the 26cm handle drop means your Semana can grace your shoulder as well as your arm.
Hands-free classic by day, high-end clutch by night
pampeano's other luxury leather bags in the latest collection include the Joven; a classic cross-body bag which has been crafted from buttery soft leather in a range of delectable and vibrant colours. The gorgeous azure blue version features a contrasting, yet subtle, cream pampa diamond design, hand-woven into the leather on the front with the expertise of pampeano's skilled artisans. The strap is removable too, so your bag will take you from a hands-free receptacle by day to a sophisticated,
Waist-cinching pampeano polo belts
You can have fun this season with layering and building autumnal looks with your pampeano pieces - using only premium grade leather and the finest quality textiles and threads. Refine your outerwear with waist cinching-belts; whether it is wide or narrow, treat yourself to a pampeano belt. Our extensive collection of luxury leather belts includes plain leather (skinny and standard widths in a selection of colours), cowhide leather belts and of course, our classic leather polo belts - complete with vibrantly coloured embroidery, hand-stitched into the thick Argentine leather.
For an on-trend autumn/winter look, use our belts to cinch coats, skirts, dresses, capes and pampeano cashmere scarves. If you prefer a more classic look, simply take your pampeano belt and team with wardrobe staples of denim jeans, a crisp shirt, cashmere scarf and pampeano's delectable pure leather Moda boots.
These must-have boots will take you right through the season and beyond. Available in honey brown, black and London tan, our Moda boots are inspired by the traditional Argentine polo boot. A striking full-length zip runs down the length of the front, and detailing includes pampeano's iconic pampa diamond, hand-stitched onto the top zip guard. Match with pampeano cotton polo whites and our Moreno polo belt.
pampeano prides itself on its opulent detailing - from the intricate hand-stitching by South American artisans on its belts and bags to its natural vegetable tanning processes on its premium grade leather. pampeano pieces also combine functionality with quality and style.
With Christmas hot on the heels of autumn, we also have some great ideas for gifts. Our Empresa leather briefcase makes its debut this season and is a stylish and elegant addition to your, or your significant other's, wardrobe. Meanwhile, our pouches, wallets and purses bring a pop of colour to the proceedings. Team these with pampeano's hand-stitched leather keyrings and you have a gorgeous, luxury gift pairing to make anyone smile.
Sumptuous throws as the season turns
If cuddling up by a roaring log fire with a good book or glass of Rioja (or both) is more your thing this autumn, then pampeano's giant chunky knit throws make a good accompaniment. Made of the finest merino wool, our sumptuous throws come in dusky pink, midnight grey and aqua hues.
These playful items are very on trend this season and add texture, style and character to your home interior. Available in single or king-size, let this giant throw envelop your body and keep you warm as the nights are drawing in.
We hope you enjoy our new autumn winter collection as Mother Nature weaves her magic on the landscape as the season turns.
