Loewe’s Flamenco Clutch bag was created in the 1970s at the Maison’s historic Madrid workshop, using nappa leather that was used only for garments due to its lightness. Modernised over the years, Loewe’s Flamenco bag refresh for its FW20 runway adopts new proportions while keeping its distinctive silhouette, lightness and versatility.
Loewe’s FW20 collection bridges functionality and modernity, while still preserving iconic Loewe codes. Playful yet functional, the Flamenco clutch is not only a key piece in the FW20 collection, but also an avenue that showcases 2018 Loewe Foundation Craft Prize finalist, artist Takuro Kuwata’s ceramic artistry.
The Flamenco Clutch’s laces are finished with the knot, one of Loewe’s most iconic House codes introduced by Jonathan Anderson in his first collection as Creative Director. Cinch the drawstring by tightening the laces – doesn’t their shape remind you of a flamenco dancer’s dress?
A novel silhouette of the Flamenco Clutch, crafted from shiny soft calf and built to follow the grooves of waves, is featured in this collection. Named Ondas – the Spanish word for waves.
There is also a version of the clutch that has playful bell tassels instead of the knots, a nod to Takuro Kuwata’s innovation in craftsmanship that he applied to the Flamenco Clutch bags on Loewe’s FW20 runway. These tassels are also available as fun charms you can add to any bag.
Crafted in supple nappa calfskin and in fall-appropriate tones like warm desert, deep red, and vintage khaki, the Flamenco Clutch comes in a new mini size, for those who seek this Loewe signature bag style in petite proportions.
