The saddle bag is seeing a resurgence for SS19, so there has never been a better time to invest in Loewe’s raffia and calf-leather Gate style. Jonathan Anderson has placed Loewe’s focus firmly back on its artisanal roots and the handbag’s use of colourful, tactile raffia, against the sleek, tied-leather details, allows the brand to prove its skill at blending materials to captivating effect. Other eye-catching features include the side-latching metal pin, from which the bag takes its name, and the raffia notes, which evoke the espadrille sandals that Spain is synonymous with.
The Gate bag in Blossom combines soft pink with pops of lemon, lime and raspberry to conjure up warm summer evenings – this would be the perfect accessory to wear while strolling through Madrid’s Retiro Park. Also available in light blue and tan colourways, the Gate bag is the perfect size to hold all of your essentials as you explore the city.
