By now, you have probably heard or even seen Disney’s latest adventure fantasy film Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton. However, if you are a fan of Loewe, you might have caught a glimpse of the brand’s capsule collection—inspired by Disney’s iconic character, Dumbo the Elephant—presented as part of Loewe’s Spring Summer ’19 Menswear collection. The collection comprises a series of men and women ready-to-wear pieces, as well as the brand’s signature Goya backpack and T-pouch.
To the naked eye, the designs appear adorable (we have our eyes set the jumper!), the Dumbo motifs are not merely just printed on. For example, the ones that appear on the bags are created with a complex technique that incorporates both printing and marquetry (otherwise known as inlay work) — which is a highly intricate and time-consuming craft that looks like printing from afar, but is formed from the piecing together of different layers of leather to create a single surface print.
The collection is now available in 10 selected locations worldwide. However, if you are a Malaysian and would like to get your hands on this collection, we suggest you flap your ears over to Loewe at Paragon Singapore.
