PHOTO COURTESY OF LOEWE
No, the Barcelona is not getting an overhaul at Loewe, but you can think of it as Jonathan Anderson’s way of giving it a facelift to complement existing styles currently available at the Spanish luxury house. If you’ve always preferred a full-leather version without the metallic triangle detail in the middle, then this Fall-Winter 2021 Barcelona will be the one to check out.
Crafted from silk calfskin leather, it is known for its ability to develop a shiny patina over time, giving you a bag that’s unique to you. The tone-on-tone colours will also appeal to lovers of a cleaner/minimalistic design, and you will be able to find 5 different shades like Berry, Lagoon Blue, Ochre, Tan and Vintage Khaki for the first launch. Only available in a single size for now, it measures some 22.5 cm wide and 15 cm high, which is perfect for your daily jaunts.
Other changes include the versatile shoulder strap that’s now adjustable to give you a shorter double loop to sling under the arm if you choose to. Alternatively, you can keep it long and wear it across the cross the body. The internal compartments are also pretty well thought out, and you will be able to find 4 pockets and a zipped compartment to keep your personals organised.
Priced at SGD5450, the new Barcelona looks set on becoming a new classic of the house, and it is now available at Loewe boutiques in Singapore as well as online via their e-commerce site.
