If you’re a believer that small is beautiful, then Loewe’s new interpretation of their Gate Bag will certainly catch your fancy. Known as the Mini Gate Bag that made its debut at Loewe’s Fall-Winter 2018 runway show back in March, it is the perfect piece for the girls (and the boys) who want something that’s cuter than cute.
Bearing the same saddle-like silhouette as its bigger siblings, the Mini Gate Bag is proportionately scaled down to just 15 cm by 12.5 cm by 8 cm, while retaining the essential elements of the Gate family of bags. These include the latched metallic pin on the side, the knotted front belt bow closure and the embossed anagram logo at the corner.
There are two leather options to keep an eye out for, starting with the soft grained calf that’s available in 3 different colour combinations — Light Caramel/Pecan, Petroleum Blue/Cypress, and Scarlet Red/Burnt Red which are priced at SGD1690. The second version comes in a soft natural calf that’s priced a tad bit higher at SGD1850, coming in either Midnight Blue or Wine.
Aside from calf leather, the Mini Gate Bag includes an exotic python variation (SGD2290) in colours like Copper or Ice, which if you think about it, is a pretty great price for a bag that comes in a precious leather. Available at Loewe boutiques in Singapore (Marina Bay Sands, Paragon Shopping Centre and Takashimaya Shopping Centre), this is the tiny bag of the season to buy.
