You might know Jonathan Anderson as the man behind the revival and rejuvenation of Spanish luxury house Loewe, but his namesake label JW Anderson is famous for its cheeky styles like the Cap Bag and Punch Bag which are shaped like a snapback cap and a boxing bag respectively. They are fun, quirky, and you can’t deny that they are definitely different, and if that has left you wanting more, you can now look forward to a brand new style known as the Blinkers Bag.
Shaped like a sunglass case (hence the name), this whimsical design measures 36.5 cm wide and 26 cm high, and is crafted entirely out of a single piece of leather using an east-west construction cut. Each bag is also finished with a curved bottom, magnetic gold-tone closure and reinforced corners that mimics the actual case to a T.
For all the talk about how it does not come in a conventional handbag silhouette, the Blinkers Bag is actually big on function thanks to its exaggerated size. It will be able to fit a cardholder, a small lip balm, and of course, a pair of sunglasses, all of which can be secured shut via the rounded JW Anderson-branded logo right in front. Available only in a single size and colour, you can find the Blinkers Bag over at JW Anderson’s e-commerce store now, priced at SGD1130 for the one in Tan.
