Harrods, London

Production, Installation

When Minki Balinki was commissioned to realise a unique up scaled version of the cult classic Amazona bag for Loewe at Harrods, they were thrilled. Alongside Chloe, Mulberry and Fendi, their installation is suspended and full of VM pride.

The body of the bag is created using highly reflective golden tools supplied by Loewe.  All 132 individual vertical transparent wires are suspended from a bespoke steel grid. Each measurement carefully calculated to preserve the shape of the bag. The internal metal structure within each handle ensures the giant handles are held firmly in place alongside an oversized exact copy of Loewe’s padlock modelled for genuine authenticity.

Celebrating the craftsmanship needed for the luxury handbag world, the oversized leather pieces together with the semi permeable tooled body of the bag make the illusion all the more pronounced. Leather panel cream walls and floors encase the piece, providing the perfect backdrop for 147 kilos of style.  The overall result is simply stunning and chic.

It has claimed worldwide recognition and was a joy to produce here at Minki Balinki. www.minkibalinki.com visionary solutions. Concept and design by Loewe, production and installation by Minki Balinki.
