New season, new “It” bag – the fashion world will always need one of those, right? But while roomy totes and compact crossbodys will always have a place in our closets, it’s the Loewe ‘Balloon’ bag that has become impossible to ignore. This slightly structured take on the bucket bag was first introduced at the Spring/Summer 2020 show and has quickly become synonymous with the Spanish brand. It boasts a melange of two types of leather – no surprise there considering its expertise in leatherwork. The round base is made using tough calf leather, which supports a sac of delicate napa calfskin.
The ‘Balloon’ bag is available in an array of sizes and colors, but it’s the ability to personalize it that only adds to its appeal. On the end of the knotted drawstrings is a Loewe ‘Anagram Dice’ that can be customized in “all kinds of colors, sizes, and designs”, according to the label. And in case you’re wondering what’s next, Loewe’s recent Fall/Winter 2020 show indicates that new iterations in snakeskin print are headed our way. We’ve already spotted influencers and celebrities alike carrying this statement accessory, Sienna Miller, Tiffany Hsu, and Dua Lipa included. See how they’re slinging it in our gallery, below.
