What could be better than a Loewe bag?
Five, of course, and turn them into nano.
In a gesture that would surely delight fans of the brand and tiny tiny bags, the Spanish luxury fashion house unveiled a specially designed collectible gift box that contains five of its signature handbags – Puzzle, Hammock, Gate, Flamenco and Balloon.
Of course, all are rendered in “nano” forms to fit perfectly into a collector’s box, which has been heavily inspired by tradition. Kiribako Japanese containers and crafts. These containers are often used for gifting and storing valuables in Japan, which is suitable given that the nano Gate and nano Hammock bags are exclusive to this collector’s set.
The box – crafted from Paulownia wood in Japan – sees a darker laser-etched Loewe anagram on its lid, which opens to reveal adorable compartments lined in calfskin colors that match the colors of the bags. The names of the bags have also been engraved in gold on the back of the compartments – in case, you know, you can’t keep up.
Another thoughtful touch, each of the five nappa leather bags is offered in iconic Loewe colors. The nano Balloon, for example, is in a striking shade of primary red, while the nano Gate is in an eye-catching lagoon.
As a last nod to the legendary artisans of Japan, the box is sealed with sanada-himo cord, a tightly woven fabric that was originally reserved for samurai to tie their armor. This historic fabric was then used more widely for its functionality and has, for centuries, been adapted for various families and clans in Japan.
