If there is any brand that’s got a name nobody can pronounce, it’s Loewe. Tell you what, if you can read till the end of the article, I’ll let you in on how it’s actually pronounced. Until then, I would like to fangirl about one of the house’s most iconic satchels, the Loewe Puzzle Bag

The Puzzle was actually introduced as a part of the Loewe Men’s SS15 collection in June 2014 by Jonathan Anderson. The Spanish luxury fashion house, however, has been in existence since 1846, so its rich history and heritage has culminated to create a number of It-bags in an era when It-bags were thought to be dead – including the Gate and the Hammock. Needless to say the most popular amongst them has been the Puzzle

Fast forward to November 2020 and we see a capsule formed through the brand’s collaboration with Ken Price, an American, small-scale biomorphic ceramic artist (wow, that’s a mouthful). Inspired by the LA landscape and the Moai statues of Easter Island, these graphics that appear on Loewe’s bags, clothes and accessories were originally drawn by Price on series of glazed ceramic plates and bowls he made for La Palme restaurant in Newport Beach in the 1980s.
Ceramics connoisseur Anderson, the house’s Creative Director, has reinterpreted Price’s collection as mosaic puzzles of colorful leather using marquetry, a technique the company has been using since the 1920s, with painstaking attention to detail.

The result, a stunning iteration of the Puzzle bag measuring 9.5 inches, just enough to hold your daily essentials, whether you’re running errands, or dressing up for an evening out and about. The paneled grained calfskin featuring bright blue, green and black paint is made extra secure with the help of a flap and a concealed zip closure, while there is a zip pocket at the back to for quick access to your phone and cash.
