I think we all recognise these iconic Longchamp bags. My mother has one that she’s had for years and my grandmother had one before her.
Until recently I pretty much associated them with mums, aunts, granny’s. Basically anyone but a twenty-something year old. That was until I went to Paris. (Did you know? I went to Paris the other week! Have I spoken about it? No? Sorry. I’ll shut up…soon)
Established in 1948 Jean Cassegrain, Longchamp was first established to make leather covers for smoking pipes. In 1955 they started to produce small leather goods and this naturally extended into handbags. Longchamp are now an established luxury leather handbag and leather goods company and have recently enjoyed collaborations with Kate Moss, and more recently, Jeremy Scott.
WARNING!! For the next 3 weeks there is a distinct possibility that I will wreck everyone’s heads by talking non-stop about Paris. I’ve never been before and i’m beyond excited.
Between now & then I’m going to be looking for key pieces to make my birthday trip as stylish as can be. Well, it is Paris after all…
I’m also looking for some shopping tips – especially vintage – so if you have any, please share in the comments!
Today i’m looking for the perfect bag to bring with me. I have a gorgeous brown leather vintage satchel which i’ll be bringing, but it’s quite small so I need something a bit more multifunctional that will fit camera, bottle of water, possible picnics, raincoat etc.
If I bring too big a bag I will find a way to fill it with unnecessary crap so i’m not looking at anything too big and it must have an inside zip as otherwise i’ll definitely lost stuff, i’m stupid like that.
ANYWAY, here’s a few of my faves from what i’ve seen online so far.
