Perfect reward to end 2016: Loewe Marquetry Collection Flamenco Knot BagDecember 24, 2016
Here’s mine! I finally got myself a bag that I have been wanting since last Dec. Yes, the Loewe Flamenco Knot Bag in medium size is finally in my bag collection. And instead of the classic regular version, I got one that is more and displays the expertise in leather techniques of the brand. Welcome my new Loewe Flamenco Knot in tan/camel from their interesting marquetry collection.
The Loewe Flamenco Knot bag itself is a slouchy drawstring style bag that allows for a casual versatile look perfect for everyday. The grained calfskin is soft and yet semi structured to give the silhouette body. The roomy interiors has zip and slit pockets which keeps you organised. What I love most, however, is the clever adjustable leather strap that shortens the bag to be a messenger style or hobo style. (The hobo style is great for ladies. So my mum can use my bag if she wants:-) The messenger style is however most perfect for guys, as does the size of 32x28.5x15 cm. (Do you know the flamenco bag takes more than 6 hours to craft?) You are definitely buying into hand crafted luxury. Love it! I am all set for Christmas and new years! Happy holidays everyone! Leave comments on what you got yourself this Christmas. Or tag me on instagram @mymanybags:-)
I have to admit, I am bias when it comes to Loewe. I just love Jonathan Anderson’s designs which is unconventional and innovative. The Flamenco Knot bag in tan colour has been wish listed since last Dec, so to get one and one with the colour block marquetry technique is even better. It is unique and showcases expert leather workmanship while having a classic colour and interesting silhouette. The drawstring style is casual for weekends and can pack a good amount without visually weighing you down. The transformative length of the strap allows for more than 2 ways to carry, hobo and messenger which is a bonus. The knot details is distinctive without having to blatantly showing the logo. I also love the Loewe’s leather and colours. The tan is the most beautiful I have seen other than Hermés. Workmanship is superb as well. So I give it top ratings!
Not exactly inexpensive. But the design and workmanship speaks for itself. The leather is of such good quality, and yet do not warrant Hermés pricing is a huge draw for me. Although this marquetry version is slightly more expensive than the regular version, I love the added contrast colour and leather types. Soft lambskin with grain calfskin..
★★★★ Excellent. Highly recommended
