Longchamp is best known for those ubiquitous nylon tote bags you see all the college girls carrying around campus. But it’s their handbag collaborations that really pique our interest. They’ve got not one, but two recent collaborations, with London-based designer Mary Katrantzou and the other with American designer Jeremy Scott.
The limited-edition release of Longchamp x Mary Katrantzou is a collection of tote bags called “When East Meets West.” The totes come in several silhouettes, with Katrantzou’s signature eye-popping prints like orchids and lanterns floating in the sky. You can purchase at Parisian boutique Colette starting Jan. 23.
Longchamp’s other collab with funky and tongue-in-cheek Jeremy Scott collection features the brand’s Le Pliage tote covered in a limited-edition postcard design. First there’s the side that reads “Wish you were here! Love, Jeremy” with the designer’s face on the ‘stamp’. The other side reads “Greetings from Paradise. The Land of Sunshine” It retails for $202, also at Colette.
What do you think of these two Longchamp bag collabs?
