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.
The bag owes its name to the side latched metallic pin, whilst its most distinctive element is the knotted front belt, enclosing the front flap in both a functional and decorative capacity. Along with its flirty dangling leather strip, these defining features have since been applied to an expanded family of products, incorporating various sizes, new bag shapes, including a Bucket, Top Handle and Pochette, as well as a series of small leather goods and wallets.
The Gate bag is named after the distinctive side-latched metallic pin and knotted front belt bow closure. The Gate family includes a variety of shapes – Saddle, Bucket, Bumbag, Top Handle and Pocket –in sizes medium, small and mini. Available in classic calfskin and soft grained calfskin, and in colours including light caramel, light oat and black.
