Long Live Longchamp

I love my Longchamp bags. I bought a carry-on-sized Le Pliage five years ago at the Madison Avenue shop and it's gone around the world with me literally. It is the perfect weekend bag, and it also folds into a clutch-sized shape to bring in case of overages from vacations gone wild (by shopping.) I also have an actual clutch in bright orange that my husband gave me, and it fits credit cards, iPhone, lipgloss and keys perfectly.

My mother picked up one in Hamburg last week, which allowed me to peruse the boutique and drool over this turquoise leather tote.

I don't see Longchamp as much in Pittsburgh. More so in New York, and almost ubiquitous in Europe. I'm convinced this one below is the best seller, at least in Germany. (Visit the site to design your own Le Pliage, which takes three weeks.)

Longchamp has never looked better. The Kate Moss for Longchamp collection, designed by the iconic model in their campaign, is launching next week. I love this camel hobo with the detailed stitching. I hope the Saks or Nordstrom here carries the collection to see it in person.

And I can't help but become intrigued by the social media / twiller campaign for Kate. Get creative: the best statement post wins a Kate bag. And I love the typography here (Sigh, After Effects.)
