From the Puzzle bag to the Hammock bag, Spanish luxury house Loewe continues to be at the top of its game when it comes to handbags. Now, they have a new addition to the popular Gate bag family: the Gate Bumbag. The perfect blend of functionality and sophisticated design, this new bag is as versatile as it is trendy.
Loewe first introduced the Gate collection at its Spring/Summer 2018 runway show, and they quickly became an instant classic. The half-moon-shaped saddle bag with an equestrian touch has a knotted front belt with a stripped-down design featuring a side-latched metallic pin and ribbon detail. The dangling leather strip adds an element of fun and freshness.
The new Bumbag exudes the same craftsmanship and meticulous design that have come to define the brand, yet offers something different from the rest of the Gate bags. For starters, the Bumbag has a much wider body, making it a convenient option for those who carry larger phones and purses; yet it still retains its trademark saddle shape. It’s also handcrafted in soft calfskin, unlike the other bags in the family.
The best part about the bag is its practical design, with comfort and utility at its core. The super light bag is also a versatile one: you can move around hands-free by wearing it as a crossbody, over the shoulder, tied as a belt around the waist using the thick adjustable strap, or even handheld like a clutch. The stylish bag comes in a range of shades including tan, black, steel blue, wine and pastel pink (HK$12,100).
Thanks to the Gate collection’s popularity, the brand has introduced a slew of bags to the series such as the Top Handle Bag, Bucket Bag, Pochette and Mini Bag. While some are characterised by bold splashes of colour, others carry a more neutral tone and woven textures in a number of sizes and shapes.
