Loro Piana: Handcrafted Excellence for the Everyday

by Pressroom

Handcrafted in Italy, the refined, minimalist Ghiera bag pays homage to the brand’s textile heritage and expertise.

The crescent-shaped silhouette and homonymous ring-shaped pendant defines Ghiera, the new bag from Loro Piana. You might find the hardware centrepiece familiar given its presence in the maison’s women’s garments and textile accessories. A stylised evolution of the Loro Piana pendant and a true signature detail of the bag, the shape of the ergonomic clasp is inspired by none other than rings that form part of the spinning machine, a key element in fibre processing – central to Loro Piana’s textile heritage.

Aligned with the essence of the brand, and what one would expect from its roots and expertise, the Ghiera bag exudes a strong personality accompanied by artful charm with its curved lines accentuated by the Sun Gold or Antique Silver metal fittings. The aesthetically harmonious ring-shaped strap loops add to its versatility: carry it as a shoulder or cross-body bag.

Available in three sizes – mini, small, and medium – the Ghiera in its variations of material and colour, is handcrafted in Italy. Tactile and gentle to the touch, it recalls the finest cashmere, a fabric that the maison is synonymous with.

The small version comes in Linen Calf in a creamy tone dreamily named as Sunday Morning, and in fine Saddle Leather in equally intriguingly named tones as Dark Lichen Green and Koi Fish, while the Ghiera mini bags come in Lotus Root Linen Calf and Black silk satin with glossy calfskin trim. The Ghiera in medium size comes in a soft, fine calfskin leather dyed with natural pigments in the shades of Sunday Morning, Peach Suede, Dark Chocolate Licorice and Deep Kummel.

Inside and out, no detail is overlooked, whether it pertains to form or function. The interior is cleverly organised by gussets, and lined with nappa leather in contrasting colours to add visual interest. The leather and wicker version masterfully showcases the maison’s craftsmanship: the natural-tone straw is hand-woven on a loom – an homage to the art of creating knitwear – giving every piece a distinctive, unique look.
