Nearly a yr into his appointment, Anderson added a major purse to the Loewe repertoire, one which gave the talents of the label’s craftspeople an particularly high-quality showcase. Enter the Puzzle bag, which was first seen on the males’s spring 2015 present in Paris; at Anderson’s Loewe, purses are for everybody. Like all Loewe baggage, the Puzzle is hand made in Madrid, with roughly 9 items of leather-based exactly patchworked collectively. (The method takes an estimated 9 hours.) Out there in calfskin, pebbled calfskin, and goatskin in common, small, mini, and nano sizes, the bag didn’t take lengthy turning up on all of the chicest influencers and culture-makers; head to a vogue present, gallery opening, or in-the-know cocktail get together, and also you’re sure to identify a bit of the Puzzle.
On the fashions that walked down Loewe’s spring 2018 runway have been saddle-shaped purses seemingly headed straight for It-bag standing. Dubbed the Gate as a result of a metallic hinge retains the leather-based latch in place, the bag is beloved for its quiet brilliance. It’s no look-at-me bag—and that’s precisely by design.
