Remember the young elephant with oversized ears so big, he can lift himself up in the air and fly? That’s right, it’s Dumbo the Elephant! This month, Disney is bringing this childhood favourite back into our lives through a highly-anticipated live-action remake, directed by the legendary Tim Burton. To join in the fun, Loewe, who coincidentally introduced a Disney-themed Spring/Summer 2019 menswear collection last June, will be releasing limited edition capsule creations dedicated to the original floppy-eared character from 1941.
Launching on 29 March (the same date as the Dumbo movie), the capsule collection includes men’s and women’s ready-to-wear pieces ranging from jackets to shirts, trousers and scarves, and also accessories including the brand’s signature T Pouch and Goya backpacks. Both bags feature a high-grade stone-blue hue and, of course, Dumbo himself. Instead of printing the entire character directly on the leather, Loewe has reinforced the brand’s advanced craftsmanship by employing a complex technique that combines marquetry and printing. The result? An image which consists of different textiles pieced together to create a single new surface.
Want to be amongst the first to get your hands on these highly covetable pieces? The brand is hosting pre-sale events on 28 March in the ten selected Loewe stores around the world, including Hong Kong’s Landmark store. All you have to do is register now at loewe.com/dumbo for a chance to be invited. So what are you waiting for?
