Bag Talk: Loewe Horseshoe

by Emmeline Ong

Free-spirited functionality.

Classic shapes and roomy interiors rarely fail when it comes to bags. With the powers of utility and aesthetics combined, they are delightfully functional as they are pleasing to the eye. The Loewe Horseshoe embodies this wisdom in design.

Inspired by the House’s Spanish roots, the bag’s silhouette is reminiscent of castagnettes, a classic Spanish percussion instrument. A U-shaped frame further defines its shape, calling to mind the lucky horseshoe.

The bohemian and carefree vibe of the Horseshoe bag is enhanced by its drawstring closure, a feature seen in recent creations by Creative Director Jonathan Anderson, namely in the new signature Balloon bag and drawstring version of the Hammock bag. I enjoy the ease of a drawstring not just in the fastening and unfastening process, but also its flexibility in terms of capacity. You never know when you need to free your hands, especially when out shopping.

In this iteration of the Horseshoe bag, the softer suede sac is framed by the structured calfskin, providing an interesting contrast in texture, while maintaining the shape of the design.

The neutral tones and adjustable shoulder strap make this a bag that is as functional as it is beautiful. Retailing at SGD 2,700.
