When you think of a teddy bear, you typically picture a soft, furry object that immediately puts a smile on your face. The same can be said of Loewe’s Flamenco Clutch and Goya Long Chain Clutch, which now come in a fluffy material not unlike the ones found on your favourite soft toys.
Loewe calls it ‘teddy bear’ fabric, but the right description would be mohair. The material is known for its softness, sheen and resilience to daily wear, making it an excellent choice for handbags as well. Besides, given how luscious the texture inherently is, you might just find yourself inadvertently reaching out for it now and then.
If you need a little recap on the size and make, the Flamenco Clutch is slightly larger at 30 cm wide and 24.5 cm high. Fashioned with two drawstring pulls with coiled knots at the end, this updated 70s classic now comes with an adjustable leather strap for shoulder carry as well.
The Goya Long Chain Clutch is perfect for evenings, shaped like a long baguette at 26 cm by 11.5 cm. This chic little purse features an accordion-like construction to fit a wide variety of bits and bobs, and Loewe has also given it a dressier doughnut chain strap for added flair and fun.
Designed to bring out the kid in you, these ‘teddy bear’ bags are now available at Loewe boutiques islandwide. Both the Flamenco Clutch (SGD2700) and Goya Long Chain Clutch (SGD3200) are available in three colours, Black, Light Lilac and Scarlet Red. Which little ‘teddy bear’ bag will you be taking home today?
