Here to prove that Loewe has big plans on taking weaving to the next level is this new selection of bags and accessories under the new and improved Loewe Weaves collection. These handcrafted leather accessories include everything from quirky tasselled boxes to leather knotted vases that are sold together with an inner bamboo vase. But if you are looking specifically for a handbag, look no further than this Small Flowers Balloon Bag (SGD5100) which comes decorated with leather flowers crafted by long-term Loewe collaborators Belén Martinez and Idioa Cuesta.
There are 3 main colour combinations to look out for, namely Green, Soft White and Tan, which are each embellished with an assortment of flower charms all over the exterior. Even the handle is furnished with a handwoven technique inspired by ikebana, adding an extra layer of rigidity over the soft and supple calfskin. Available in a small size which measures 25 cm high and 18 cm wide, this bag even doubles up as a pretty vase at home (if you want, that is), which just gives you another excuse to indulge.
One that can carried across the body, over the shoulder, or even in the hand, it scores top points in terms of versatility. You can’t deny that the floral charms add a lovely pop of colour and texture, a refreshing addition that’s a guaranteed head-turner for sure as well.
