Take a Chance on Loewe’s Billiard Green Puzzle Bag

Hand-stitched playing cards and dice on velvety suede will have your heart racing.

This spring, Jonathan Anderson just wants to have fun! The designer peppered his latest collection for Loewe with whimsical pieces, from pointed-toe sneakers resembling elf shoes to a sheer candy-colored, patchwork knit dress. Although the Spanish heritage label’s nearly two centuries of history would usually have a designer toeing the line, Anderson insists on bringing unexpected details into the mix. Taking a gamble with the brand’s iconic Puzzle Bag, Anderson had playing cards and dice hand-embroidered onto velvety billiard-green suede calfskin. Subtly integrated into the card pattern, the house’s quadruple-L Anagram emblem, created by Spanish painter and set designer Vicente Vela in 1970, puts these twists in context. No matter how high the stakes, one thing is certain: With Anderson’s sense of adventure driving Loewe, playing it safe is not an option.
