Jonathan Anderson‘s collections for LOEWE are nothing short of fashion wizardry, playing within the boundaries of house cues while simultaneously capable of rewriting the brand’s own rulebook. If you need reminding, take a look at its $12,050 USD sinkhole-covered car coat, or the entire Fall/Winter 2022 men’s runway show at that. Now, with this in mind, LOEWE has released two bags informed by the sinkhole philosophy, delivering the Amazona 15 and Cubi bags indebted to the kitchen essential.
The Amazona was originally launched in the 1970s as a top handle soft bag and has since gone on to become a house icon. Anderson brought the style back in recent years, and has since released it in various dimensions and takes — but none have been as daring as this new offering. Here, the piece is served in satin black calfskin leather and can be worn over the shoulder, across the body or held in hand thanks to its unique design, which has been elevated with the sinkhole taking center stage. A removable stopper, it too emblazoned with LOEWE engraved branding, is added to the accessory, as is an anagram-engraved padlock and an interior lined in suede.
For those looking to really stop the show, LOEWE’s Cubi bag in supple smooth tan-brown calfskin leather is covered in a multitude of sinkholes, coming with one removable stopper that allows you to alter its appearance.
Here, an adjustable and removable shoulder strap switches up the bag’s purpose, while your insides are protected thanks to a zipper closure at the top.
