The Gate bag was first unveiled at the Spring Summer 2018 runway show and it became an instant LOEWE icon. Embodying all the hallmarks of the house’s artisanal savoir faire, the pure pared-down design belies its ingenious and precise construction. Simultaneously structured and ultra-soft, the half-moon crossbody design is inspired by an equestrian saddle bag, ensuring a fresh sensibility and timeless appeal.
Bangles are crafted from copper to look like rings of Bamboo, a naturally occurring grass in Asia whose versatility is fundamental to the life and customs across the continent. It is a food source, building material and it is frequently used for making instruments, furniture and textures, evidenced by its appearance as a key component in some of the collection´s bags and baskets.
