If you’re looking for a clutch that’s more substantial than just two pieces of coated canvas sewn together with a zip on top (yes, Givenchy, I’m talking about you), here’s a supple full-leather for your consideration. From Loewe’s F/W13 collection (also Stuart Vevers’ last collection for the Spanish house if you didn’t yet know) comes the Loewe Cartero Clutch, a spin-off of sorts from the Cartero which made her debut on the runway.
Measuring 29.5 cm across by 19 cm, the Cartero Clutch packs a few surprises on the inside. Besides an interior pocket that comes with its own snap button closure, the gusseted sides allow you the depth you’ll need for say, the wallet and the smart phone, without the clutch looking too contorted.
On the front you find a flap that’s affixed to a long leather ‘arrow’ that can be inserted into the bow-shaped tab, a simple, straightforward way of securing the clutch without the extra need for a hardware clasp or button. Best thing, it comes in 4 colours, 3 of which are shown above from top to bottom: Flame, Khaki and Stone. There’s also an all-black option for those who prefer, well, an all-black option but that would be too predictable, don’t you think?
Personally I’m eyeing the one in Khaki for myself, and if you are keen, you can check them out for yourself at Loewe boutiques at Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City where it retails for SGD1190 apiece.
