With more than 13 million sold, Longchamp's highly successful Le Pliage bags have now become synonymous with chic and functional travel styles. You can literally spot Longchamp Le Pliage bags in every incarnation at airports everywhere! I love the light weight and durable constructions with a wide array of colours and sizes to suit every tastes, be it, man or woman.
For Spring Summer 2012, Longchamp will launch a new range of Le Pliage bags, but this time in the softest and supplest metis leather (a cross between a goat and lamb and highly compact and foldable) that is a match for their nylon counterparts and more! Welcome the Le Pliage Cuir collection. More luxurious, more exciting colours but the same level of light weight and sturdy design for your needs on the road. Thoughtful shoulder strap for some designs makes this the perfect day bag while you are travelling but without the bulk! I want one:-) One in every shade from brown to beige to red or blue!
The Le Pliage Cuir collection will come in 5 formats, including a travel bag, 2 totes, a shopper and a pouch. Enquire at the Longchamp store in Ion Orchard Singapore (or a store near you) if you want these bags as much as me:-P
(Having seen and touched these in person at my recent press visit at Longchamp, I can attest to the weight and compactness of these Le Pliage cuir bags. Love it, although pricing comes a little more expensive as they are full leather bags:-P Check out pics of my press day visit here on my facebook fanpage. More pics of the collection here as well.)
