Why fashion insiders love Loewe

From the Puzzle to the Hammock, Spanish fashion house Loewe sets the modern standard for luxury leather bags


The Puzzle is a perennial favorite on the arms of fashion editors, the Hammock is a shortcut to modern stealth style and the new Gate is sure to experience the same sellout success – Loewe just knows how to create a cult bag. But these aren’t just the latest It pieces. The label has been the authority in leather goods for over 170 years, and with Jonathan Anderson as Creative Director, the Spanish house continues to design classic handbags using cutting-edge techniques. From ready-to-wear to accessories, each piece is the essence of modern luxury.

The latest bag to be released by the label, the new Gate design opened the SS18 runway show and accessorized many of the standout looks. Crafted from leather by the house’s master craftsman, the Gate is designed in a saddle silhouette that features an equestrian-inspired knotted front belt and white stitching. It’s fully lined in suede and finished with hand-painted edges. Wear cross-body or on your shoulder, or detach the shoulder strap to carry in-hand, just like some of the models did at the show.

The distinctive shape and seasonal
colorways make the Puzzle a standout piece

Loewe’s versatile Hammock bag can be worn folded or open, on the shoulder, cross-body or carried in-hand. Made from the world’s finest leather and embossed with the brand’s logo, it features stylish gold zips that can be undone to modify the silhouette of the bag and create more space. Even better, the flat base and D-ring fastening ensure that it’s secure and practical for carrying your belongings.

Perhaps one of the label’s most iconic bags from the last few years, Loewe’s Puzzle bag is constantly snapped on the arms of editors – the distinctive shape and seasonal colorways make it a standout piece. Made by hand from over 40 pieces of leather, the Puzzle is composed of geometric fragments of leather that have been sliced and repositioned. Much like the Hammock and the Gate, the Puzzle is incredibly versatile, too – wear yours as a backpack, carry it in-hand or collapse it down into a clutch, depending on your outfit.
