My oldest Longchamp bag is over 15 years old. When I first brought it back from France, Longchamp hadn’t yet made it to North America. Everyone was missing out on the usefulness of Le Pliage. Now, however, Longchamp has crossed the Atlantic, and its bags are available in multiple styles and colours in stores and online. Lucky us! Here are five of my current faves (beyond the classic Le Pliage collection)…
Longchamp 2.0 crossbody
Longchamp 2.0 handbag
Longchamp 404 small tote bag

What do you think of Longchamp’s current collection? Have a great weekend, everyone!
When I was 20 years old and living in Bordeaux, France, it didn’t take me long to notice that the purse of choice for so many French women was Longchamp. In any and every size. I LOVED them. I bought my first Longchamp – a red pliage –Â and it was a big purchase for my 20 year old self. It was completely worth it though as I have put – and continue to put – that little red pliage to very good use! Since then, I’ve added a few more Longchamp bags to my collection and they continue to be some of my favourites. They’re lightweight, easy to pack, fit all my junk, and they look good with anything. Plus, they’re French. Oui, oui!
