If there’s one clutch that I would recommend everyone to get, it would be this, theLoewe T-Bar Pouch that’s actually more useful than it looks. Holding much more than you would think possible, it isn’t like conventional zip clutches that while pretty, are also built flat which means you’ll be lucky just to get some cards and cash in.
The T-Bar Pouch is different.
Built with a T-bar profile that you see towards the bottom of the clutch (look at it from the side and you’ll the inverted T), it actually allows you to pop as much as you can into it without it looking overly bulbous or stuffed. I have one, and I have on many occasions used it like a mini day bag, fitting in everything from my long wallet to keys to mints to portable charger to cables to coin purse to lip balm. Yes, it gets heavy, of course, but the clutch stays in shape and still looks good sitting up or lying down.
Launched the same time J.W. Anderson did his first collection for Loewe, the T-Bar Pouch now comes in 3 sizes, with my favourite still being the Large that measures 30.5 cm by 20 cm (SGD950). Available in a variety of finishes, you can get the clutch in smooth calf, engraved calf, exotics and embossed logo calf, which is still my personal favourite given how hardy the leather is. It also comes in a variety of delicious hues, from F/W15’s Khaki Green in embossed leather calf (shown above) to the Holiday 2015 collection that comes in metallic embossed leather calf, including hues like Blue,Pink (look up) and Silver.
Now available at Loewe boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Ngee Ann City, I also like the fact that if I’m not carrying much, I can fold it over. And even when it’s returned to its original position, no creases. At all.Other Brands
