Alexa Chung, Katie Holmes, Jessica Alba, January Jones and the model Kendall Jenner were spotted recently wearing the brand new Le Pliage® Héritage from the Longchamp Autumn 2014 collection.
More than 65 years of savoir-faire are the perfect standpoint from which to focus on the future, as Longchamp proves once again this Autumn with the launch of LE PLIAGE® HÉRITAGE. Drawing on the authentic leather craftsmanship for which the Longchamp workshops are renowned, this desirable new city bag pays homage to the legendary Le Pliage®, yet is surely destined to become an icon in its own right – the fashion statement of the season and beyond.
With its unique mix of contemporary style and artisan tradition, LE PLIAGE® HÉRITAGE clearly has all it takes to become Longchamp’s next it-bag. From the original Le Pliage®, it borrows its distinctive trapezoidal structure, which interpreted in firm, finely grained cowhide leather becomes graphic and modern. This striking, instantly identifiable shape is offset by minimalist detailing: the emblematic flap of Le Pliage® is transformed into an elegant trompe-l’oeil, highlighted by contrast edges, while the Longchamp signature in pale gold sets the seal on the understated luxury of LE PLIAGE® HÉRITAGE.
