I’ve loved handbags for as long as I can remember, and from a very young age, I knew I would become a collector of them one day. There was something about bags that enticed me. Something far beyond the superficial. The story they told, how they are essentially an extension of ourselves.

Eventually, I would end up making a career out of my passion, and it wasn’t until I began working in the industry that I became familiar with Loewe. Highly coveted by those in the know, Loewe is one of those brands that somehow still remains more under-the-radar than other brands. That intrigue, among other things, makes Loewe so special.

Founded in Madrid in 1846, Loewe began as a leather goods company and focuses on that craft to this day; and as a handbag lover in 2022, when you think of Loewe, you likely think of the iconic Puzzle bag, and for a good reason.

A Modern Classic

When it comes to bags, handbag lovers and fashion industry insiders alike often categorize a bag as one of two things: classic/timeless or trendy. But every once in a while, a bag so versatile comes along that it can actually be considered both. Yup, you guessed it, I’m talking about the Loewe Puzzle Bag.

Bags In The Wild Miami May 5th 20

Introduced in 2014, the Loewe Puzzle Bag was Creative Director Jonathon Anderson’s first bag for the Spanish Design House. Though it was originally designed as a Men’s Duffle, the bag transcends genders and can be worn by all. Not only that, it can be categorized into many different styles—it’s classic yet modern, with its origami-like shape and versatile ways of carrying. It can be dressed up or dressed down—worn with athleisure or your best look for dining out; the Puzzle bag can do it all.

A Puzzle for All

What makes the Puzzle so unique is that the original remains a coveted item season after season, with little change to the bag’s original shape. Though the line has been expanded upon, offering new shapes, sizes, and colors, the iconic shape is here to stay, making the Puzzle one of the most versatile bags of the last ten years. With varying sizes to choose from, there is a puzzle for everyone, and you can bet that it will never go out of style.

Loewe Puzzle Bag

I have yet to add a Puzzle Bag to my collection, but it is a bag I keep returning to season after season, and this fall, this House staple is reinvigorated again with new details. The Puzzle Edge Bag features the iconic and distinctive geometric lines, but this time over-stitched edges and a hand-woven top handle further enhance the bag. It’s these little details that, literally, add an edge to an already beloved bag. High on my lust list, I’m falling in love with the Puzzle all over again.

Same! I’ve had my eye on this bag for years, and finally bit the bullet this year. It’s been around for so long that it’s not really a one season and done bag. It’s exceeded my expectations! I’ve been using it nonstop since I got it. Definitely a great bag investment in terms of price per use.

I used to dislike this bag but it’s been growing on me. It looks beautiful in the cover photo.

LOVE love love the small Puzzle. It looks small but is deceptively quite roomy. Fits everything including my Kindle, shades, keys and even a small water bottle! Who would have thought?!

Love, love, love this bag 😍😍. This is one of the best Jonathan Anderson’s wonderful desing. But Loewe has other wonderful bags as Flamenco, Amazona or Hammock, and totes too. @daveloeweyou.

I’ve currently got my eye on the hobo style in Ochre; I saw it in store the other day and it’s stunning!

I did it this year. I bought the puzzle bag mini in Jungle Green. I literally get stopped every time I wear it. Which only true purse lovers know who Loewe is. Beautiful quality and design.

It’s a beautiful bag and it is on my wishlist too! I love the unique details and that it’s a brand that is less on the radar.

I’ve loved this bag since it came out, but still hasn’t gotten to buy it yet. Funny enough. I already got 3 of the sister model “Hammock”. Loewe’s leather is amazing. I’d say it’s one of the best among luxury brands.I don’t know what I’m still waiting for in this model either. Maybe the right combination of colour hasn’t come along yet.

I actually didn’t like this bag when I first saw it, but then it grew on me and I found a great deal for a classic color that I couldn’t pass up and risk the time of a return. When I started received it, I instantly loved it! It’s really practical, versatile, and looks a lot better in person than in stock photos. I’m so glad I bit the bullet! It still looks as good as new as when I first bought it.

Was very generously gifted my first Puzzle in Scuba Blue last week while on vacation in London. Blown away by the quality and sheer beauty! Will look stunning with all black outfits in the fast approaching fall.
