PHOTO COURTESY OF LOEWE
Quite possibly the cutest bag you’ll be seeing all week, this new-in accessory from Loewe looks set on charming the hearts of many. Shaped like a turtle with leather panels on the head, tail and limbs to complete the look, Loewe’s woven expertise is demonstrated to perfection once again, with the toquilla palm carefully aligned and interworked to create a stiff and hardy exterior that’s rather befitting of a turtle’s shell. The multicolour pattern is equally eye-catching as well, paired beautifully with blue leather panels that pay homage to the oceans.
Now, if you think that it’s more of a decorative piece rather than a functional one, you will be surprised to find that the Turtle Pouch is quite roomy for its size. Thanks to its raised shell, several items like your mini cardholder and AirPods can fit within the 20 cm by 15 cm body, making it a solid contender for daily use. Each pouch is also sold together with an adjustable calfskin strap (135 cm in length), allowing you to wear it across the body with no trouble at all.
Loewe is no stranger to making quirky objets d’art, with bunnies and elephants already regular fixtures at the Spanish luxury house. Priced at SGD1450, it is now available in boutiques and online via Loewe Singapore.
