There’s no stopping Jonathan Anderson and the team at Loewe lately. Season after season, collection after collection, the brand introduces a covetable selection of bags (and accessories) that thrive on both innovation and classicality. It’s that commitment to Loewe’s storied history of craft that shines once again for Pre-Spring 2023.

The Chinese Monochrome Collection

A huge part of the Pre-Spring 2023 selection hails from the new Chinese Monochrome Collection. This collection not only speaks to Loewe’s history but also puts a spotlight on the ceramic techniques of China’s ancient Ming and Qing dynasties. The brand is committed to preserving its history in artisanal craftsmanship. It also devotes resources to celebrating the craft of other artisans around the world through various partnerships and collaborations as well as through the Loewe Foundation.

An ode to the power and beauty of a single hue

This collection does just that, tapping into the art of an ancient technique. China’s ancient ceramics are known for their precision and elegance thanks to the techniques that have been refined for generations. Through experimentation and painstaking attention to detail (just like Loewe’s artisans), craftspeople have perfected this craft, aiming to capture the colors of nature, which has been the inspiration behind Loewe’s stunning new bags.

The Story of Monochrome

Monochrome ceramics are notable thanks to their clean silhouettes and lack of ornamentation, and the bags in this collection ooze a similar feel. Beautiful shades of pale purple, yellow, ruby red, and more appear on Loewe’s most-loved silhouettes like the Puzzle, Hammock, Goya, Flamenco, and more. An ode to the colors of nature, bags from the Monochrome collection feature tonal hardware and adorable porcelain bunny charms in ten monochromatic shades. Melding an age-old process with Loewe’s storied artisanal savoir-faire, the Chinese Monochrome collection begs to be seen. Discover more via Loewe.

How is this Chinese ceramic inspired? It’s literally just a very nice looking one color Loewe bag.

I agree that although we can go to the site, writing an *article* on something should at least attempt to explain the title!

I read the paragraph and still don’t know how the bag relates to ancient Chinese porcelain that often are not monochromatic.

Loewe is a brand with a great involvement towards the Arts. From its designer who is passionate about Crafts and ceramics, through the same brand that for decades has sponsored a Poetry Prize or Ballet shows, through the Loewe Foundation. For about 5 years now, he has been sponsoring a prestigious Craft Award incentivised by Jonathan W. Anderson. In this Pre collection the inspiration is in the colours of several Chinese ceramic objects from different dynasties, painted with natural colours. That’s why the bags have those colours in satin leather. But what is perfectly explained is that it is inspiration.

I actually really like the branded straps, but the cheesy colored chains are a huge no for me

The colors of the chains are pretty, but they look cheap.

Brands faithfully pay homage to China every year. Will they ever rotate the focus with other parts of the world?

Yes… as soon as any other single-nation “part of the world” accounts for 20-50% of annual sales, for the better part of a decade.
