The brand has since continued their quest and have brought the house one step closer to becoming a more sustainable brand through the launch of “The Surplus Project”. The premise behind the project is to craft beautiful accessories using unusual surplus leather from previous LOEWE collections and in doing so, preserving precious resources.
The silhouettes of choice for the collection is the iconic basket bag, which first made an appearance as part of Jonathon Anderson’s first collection back in Spring-Summer 2015. The bag is created from two of LOEWE’s leathers – a smooth, classic calfskin, and a finely textured, soft grained calfskin. The leathers are cut in to narrow strips and woven in to a lattice formation, creating a mosaic of colour and texture.
