Longchamp and Filt have come together to add a new twist to two iconic bags, Le Pliage® and the essential string shopping bag.
Both French Maisons, still privately owned by families, carry the "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" label (the Excellence of French Know-How) and their collaboration focuses on firstly, the famous Le Pliage® produced in the Loire Valley Longchamp workshops, and secondly, the iconic Filt string shopping bag, manufactured in Normandy since 1860.
These two unique Textile and Leather French Savoir-Faire bring spirit to an offbeat collector's item. This hybrid design is available in six colours, adopts the large mesh of the string shopping bag and is adorned with the Russian leather handles and flap of the Le Pliage® bag. Signature details add a touch of sophistication and make it the must-have bag for Summer 2021.
Its vintage notes make it feminine, refined and offbeat, a design that takes on a «less is more» attitude.
"It's rare for a collaboration to bring together two bags. But I like the idea of a union between two icons that combine to exalt an allure, personality and a little humour," says Sophie Delafontaine, Artistic Director of Maison Longchamp.
