Le Pliage Collection

Le Pliage Collection

Longchamp drew its inspiration from origami when creating  Le Pliage, a light, foldaway bag that has since become a Longchamp icon worldwide. The Le Pliage line comes in a multitude of shapes and sizes, and in a rainbow of colors each season. Ideal for everyday use, Le Pliage is light as a feather, folds away to the size of a paperback, and is durable enough to keep all your essentials close at hand.

Le Pliage Cuir Collection

Le Pliage Cuir Collection

Longchamp drew its inspiration from origami when creating its iconic Le Pliage: a light, foldaway bag that has a worldwide following. Le Pliage Cuir was created with the attributes that have made the Le Pliage line such a success: a palette of vibrant colors and an ingenious foldaway design!  Le Pliage Cuir is undeniably the perfect companion from morning to evening, at the office, on the weekend, and for travel.  Its metis leather retains qualities of a soft and buttery lambskin and the resiliance of goatskin for an elegant and casual look.

Mademoiselle Longchamp Collection

Mademoiselle Longchamp epitomizes chic French style and an uninhibited French spirit.  Longchamp's signature logo is engraved on an iconic clasp, and an additional enameled house wax seal on the side lends character.  Created in an exceptional calfskin leather, skillful perforation to the front pocket lends an insouciant, casual vibe to the line, which is both comfortable and easy to wear.

Amazone Collection

Amazone Collection

Amazone embodies the Parisian woman: the myth, the state of mind, that indescribable "je ne sais quoi," which keeps the whole world in awe. This line draws its inspiration from the two river banks of the river Seine, which flows through Paris: The Rive Droite and The Rive Gauche.  The Rive Droite neighborhoods embody chic elegance, which is reflected in the bags' streamlined shapes and glamorous metal chain, which can be adjusted to be worn short on the shoulder, or as a crossbody.  The Rive Gauche neighborhoods ooze bohemian spirit, which is reflected in the equestrian-style stirrup buckle, the discrete signature logo hot-stamped into the leather, and the braided piping, which lends a feminine touch. The soft and supple cowhide brings out the light, sensual aspects of the bags.

Pénélope Soft Collection

Longchamp's Pénélope line combines Longchamp’s leather goods know-how and French elegance. The bags’ sport-chic trapezoidal shape is embellished with clean-cut edges, its handles are top-stitched with a leather strip, and its tassels lend a feminine touch. This variation of the line adds a touch of sensual velvet to a smooth leather body, creating a beautiful contrast.

Paris Premier Collection

Paris Premier Collection

In Paris Premier, the Longchamp brand pays tribute to its emblematic rue Saint-Honoré address, in the first arrondissement of Paris. The items in this line beautifully combine round details, hand-finished features and metallic touches in brass, illustrating Longchamp’s superior leather and manufacturing know-how.  Aligned with small studs, the subtly embossed Longchamp signature lends the bags sophistication.  Lined in a luxurious lambskin, the smooth calfskin body has a slight patina giving the models a velvety, matte appearance for a very sensual, natural effect.

Le Pliage Héritage Collection

Le Pliage Héritage was created in tribute to the brand’s leather craftwork and expertise.  Chic and structured with clean-cut edges and tone-on-tone topstitching, these sophisticated bags are enhanced with contrasting finished edges.  Longchamp's logo is subtly hot-stamped on the bag, and is engraved on the metal closures.  Created in a mini-cross-grain embossed cowhide, the bag's trapeze silhouette follows tradition while adding modernity.

Le Foulonné Collection

Le Foulonné is one of Longchamp's most iconic lines, created in 1975.  Notable for the special leather grain after which it is named, Le Foulonné occupies a special place within the brand’s collections, and line’s silhouettes have become timeless classics that are regularly updated.  The line's signature drummed grain cowhide leather has a refined, sensual texture, which beautifully sets off the line's classic styles offered in a wide range of colors in handbags, small leather goods, and luggage.
