Love the idea of the origami-inspired Puzzle Fold Tote but wish it came in a bigger size? Then, Loewe’s new-in Fold Shopper, complete with a distressed finish, is the answer. Thanks to its soft, pliable material, the versatile carryall offers the ability to be folded flat at the base.
Don’t mistake the shiny exterior for coated canvas, because the entire Fold Shopper is made of paper calfskin. This explains the crinkly effect as well. Complete with thick canvas handles for shoulder or hand carry, this stylish shopper comes in Black, Orange and Winter Brown. The reinforced straps also feature contrasting Loewe logos all over.
Measuring 50 cm wide and 31 cm high, it’s big enough for a weekend staycation or taking to the office. Yes, it will fit the new 15-inch MacBook Air, in case you were wondering. And you can even throw in an extra pair of shoes if you’re heading to the gym after work. Yet despite the full-leather exterior with herringbone cotton canvas lining and extra leather zip patch pocket inside, it only weighs half a kilo.
In other words, you can consider bringing the Fold Shopper along with you for travels, unfolding it only when needed. Like those days you go crazy either shopping for snacks in Japan or beauty essentials (hello, Olive Young) in Korea. Retailing at SGD2850, which colour of this nifty must-have has your heart?
