Cheap Longchamp Bag Outlet UK



FRENCH LUXURY leather goods brand Longchamp UK recently made its presence felt in Bangkok with the opening of a boutique in Central Chidlom,

Located in the Luxe Galerie zone, the 66 square-metre shop-in-shop maintains a touch of the cheap Longchamp personality with a small facade and window display lightbox symbolic of the brand’s Parisian roots.

Fans of the brand will be enchanted by the Pliage Wall, another signature space that displays the legendary foldable handbag in a variety of colours.

A showcase of the autumn and winter 20015 collection of the Pliage Heritage bag, and especially its mini sibling, was introduced along with the new shop. The strength of the mini Pliage lies in its ability to slip into the palm of the hand, without losing the slightest detail that gives it its force and personality.

The mini version also displays a uniquely distinctive graphic silhouette. Carried in the hand or worn across the body with its shoulder strap, it is the must-have bag, the accessory for any occasion and an evening essential.

Combining extreme luxury longchamp outlet and sublime frivolity, it also offers a concentration of know-how and elegance. The sexy little handbag comes in two remarkable sizes: the original trapezoid shaped inspired by the legendary foldable bag, and new to the family, the cross-body rectangular shaped with an envelope flap.

The “Classiques” collection comes in three colours, new Burgundy, Natural and Earth. The bolder, joyful “Tricolore” bags boast a daring selection of refined shades in Pebble, Navy blue or Ecru, set off on the gussets by a lively luminous yellow, intense coral or a delicately subtle natural hue.

The height of refinement, the flap and trimmings are crafted in black to highlight this strikingly stylish version.

In the label’s new clothing line, block colours and standout prints highlight the graphic spirit and sets the season buzzing with vibrant energy. The graphic spirit is translated not only in the collection’s sharp tailoring, which is evident even in the more rounded shapes, but also in key details, such as contrasting glazed panels on a velvet lambskin coat or skirt, a vertical grosgrain stripe on a silk blouse and a glamorous flash of gold on a black and navy blue leather jacket.

Most emblematic of all, however, is the season’s “Artwalk”. This is inspired by the Memphis Group, founded in Milan in 1981 by the designer Ettore Sottsass. Its dynamic mix of graphic shapes with mini geometric motifs in black and white turns even the simplest pieces – a silk dress, say, or a sleeveless top – into standouts. It also shows the collection’s unexpected colour combinations at their most striking, with pale pastel energised by acid yellow, rich red by candy pink, and cobalt blue by vivid orange.

UK Longchamp's Looking Surprisingly Chic for Fall


I’ve always associated Longchamp Le Pliage Totes with sorority girls and prepsters of all types, but that may not be exactly accurate anymore. Sure, the brand is beloved by college students nationwide for their simple, lightweight, tan-handled nylon totes, but the French brand seems as though it would very much like to expand its reach beyond pear-studs set. Not only has Longchamp Outlet UK done several high-profile collaborations with bad boy designer Jeremy Scott, but its regular line of bags just got a big dose of modernity.


After looking at the images below for a little while, I’ve decided that it’s really the black handles that set the stage for the more fashionable future of Cheap Longchamp. You wouldn’t think that it would make such a big difference (after all, there are plenty of gorgeous designer handbags made of tan leather), but it totally does. The bags attached to those handles, in rich-toned leathers and textiles, feel a lot more grown up and stylish than their preppy predecessors.

Cheap Longchamp Le Pliage Totes Outlet UK 2016


Yesterday, Racked writer Chavie Lieber took a deep dive into the history of a bag most of us have probably had in our closets at one time or another: the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote. If it feels like the simple, functional Le Pliage has been unfalteringly popular with everyone you know for years, you're right: they're everywhere, but in a very careful way.

In the 23 years since the bag's 1993 debut, Lieber reports that Longchamp Outlet has sold more than 32 million of the distinctive nylon totes and duffels that bear the Le Pliage name, averaging out to nearly a million and a half per year. Recent numbers are even more impressive; Longchamp CEO Jean Cassegrain told Women's Wear Daily in 2008 that the brand's then-current manufacturing rate put it at more than 2.5 million bags produced per year.

Even if you're personally tired of the longchamp bags, it's not hard to identify the broad appeal that keeps customers coming back. The bags are incredibly lightweight and durable, which makes them excellent travel companions and school or work bags. Lieber also reports that Longchamp UK, which is still family-owned, tries to make sure things stay reigned in so as not to obliterate the bags' appeal: Longchamp still makes most of its products in France and often collaborates with fashion-forward brands and artists to maintain the bag's fashion cred, and shoppers don't often see the design discounted. (Longchamp, unlike most sizable contemporary brands, only has two US outlet stores.)

With all that in mind, though, the sales numbers are still staggering. It's rare for a global pop star to sell more than a million copies of a brand new, $12 album these days, but Longchamp Sale fans just keep coming back from more, year after year, with no slowdown in sight. How many do you have in your closet?

Longchamp Has It in the Bag Outlet Online

– The French brand has managed to capture the hearts of heads of state and pop stars, all with an inexpensive nylon tote.

The Longchamp Le Pliage tote is nothing if not versatile.

For Kimberly Harvey, a 34-year-old in New York City, it’s an overnight bag for when she visits her parents in New Jersey (“I stuff and go,” she says).

For Sharona Haroonian, a high school senior from Philadelphia, it’s a book bag (“Literally everyone at my school has one”).

For Mel Kim, a Los Angeles-based graphic designer, it’s a gym bag (“The nylon is so sturdy that I don’t care what I throw in”).

For Tina Craig, a co-founder of the blog BagSnob, it’s an extra bag to stuff in her suitcase when she goes on vacation (“I fold it, and then when I shop too much, it just becomes my carry-on”).

For Paul Danton, a 45-year-old HR professional, it’s an emergency birthday gift he bought last-minute for his wife (“She has the small one in a few colors, so I’m pretty sure she’ll like the large one”).


The trapezoidal nylon bag with leather handles and a signature flap comes in all sorts of sizes and colors and has been Longchamp’s bread and butter since it first came onto the market in 1993. Everyone from Kate Middleton to Angela Merkel to Miley Cyrus to Karlie Kloss to your own mom (or aunt or cousin or all of the above) has one. Suzy Menkes has admitted she collects them.

The Le Pliage is not an It bag — it’s far too ubiquitous for that. It’s not hard to get your hands on one, and they sell for just $95 to $145. Ten totes are sold every minute, with more than 32 million sold since their debut 23 years ago. How has the humble Le Pliage remained a reliable bestseller for nearly two decades when so many other handbag trends have come and gone?

The French Longchamp Outlet brand is valued at $1.5 billion by Forbes, due in large part to the Le Pliage. While its business is big, it’s considerably smaller than that of its publicly-traded competitors Michael Kors, Kate Spade, and Coach. Still, Longchamp is able to hold its own against these accessory giants — and its story begins with pipes.

In post-war Paris, Jean Cassegrain, the son of a prominent tobacconist, pivoted the direction of his father’s Au Sultan tobacco shop by introducing accessories made of leather. During the early 1940s, Allied soldiers were Jean’s father’s best customers, frequently visiting the small store on Boulevard Poissonnière to buy conventional smoking pipes. Once the war was over though, business was weak and the shop needed to diversify. Jean decided to debut leather-enveloped pipes for men in 1948, imitating techniques used by horse saddlers. Customers took a real liking to the luxury pipes; Elvis Presley allegedly even had one, according to the LA Times.

“There wasn’t an American GI in Europe who didn’t have one of these pipes at the time,” Jean Cassegrain, the current CEO of Longchamp and grandson (and namesake) of the brand’s founder, told the International Herald Tribune back in 1998. “They were exported and sold in PXs worldwide. That’s how it all started.”

Following the success of the leather pipes, the brand rolled out a pipe for its female customers, “the Lady,” and in 1955 expanded into other leather accessories, including cigar cases, lighters, ashtrays, cigarette dispensers, wallets, and passport holders. The family originally wanted to call the brand “Cassegrain,” but because a cousin was using the name for a family-run grain-milling business, they settled on Longchamp Outlet Online, a reference to the famous Parisian racetrack in the Bois de Boulogne, since leather goods are commonly associated with equestrianism. To this day, the brand’s logo is a jockey on a galloping horse.


Because the Cassegrains’ business roots were in tobacco, the family already had access to trade routes. In fact, Longchamp was one of the first European companies to trade with Japan, notes InStore Magazine. By 1960, its smoking accessories were sold in nearly 100 countries, and Longchamp began to produce men’s travel bags; the Cassegrains claim they were the first to create luggage made of nylon. Around this time, the family started to think about women’s accessories. According to WWD, many female shoppers in America were buying the men’s bags and requesting store buyers inquire about a women’s collection.

So in 1971, Longchamp debuted its first women’s bag, just one year before the first Jean Cassegrain passed away and his wife and son Philippe took over the family business. The “LM line,” which was first sold in Japan, was made of calfskin leather and featured horses silkscreened over a crisscross pattern (an edition of this original bag was reissued a few years ago to celebrate the brand’s 60th anniversary). The bags were an instant success and helped the brand spread rapidly across Asia. As Longchamp began to gain a reputation for producing outstanding lightweight bags, its smoking accessories appeared less and less in catalogues, until they disappeared completely in 1979.

Philippe took full control of the business after his mother died in 1980, and with expansions into clothing and other accessories like scarves, he brought his wife Michèle on board, and years later, his children Sophie, Olivier, and Jean. They still run the company today: Sophie, as artistic director; Olivier, as US managing director; and Jean, as CEO. Like Goyard, Longchamp remains one of the few high-profile accessories brands that remains single-handedly owned and operated by one family.


“The difference in having a family-run business is that they think generation to generation, not quarter to quarter,” says Katherine Ormerod, editorial director of luxury shopping site Lyst. “That’s part of the authenticity of the brand.”

Philippe introduced the Le Pliage bag in 1993, inspired by origami he saw on a trip to Japan. Initially, the bag was met with little fanfare. According to Entrepreneur, it was backed by zero marketing dollars and sales stalled for the first three years. But the bag found its footing.

“Le Pliage” means “folding bag” in French, and its simple design hit a nerve. The International Herald Tribune called it “one of those have-to-have fashions” in 1998, and the Associated Press half-jokingly told Kate Spade to “move over.” By 2008, Jean Cassegrain confirmed to WWD that the brand was making 2.5 million bags a year, boasting that he didn’t “think any brand has any single design that sells that much.”

“It was French fashion journalists who started to carry it,” Jean told the IHT. “For them, it corresponded to a real need and soon they were writing about it.”

Cheap Longchamp and Jeremy Scott team up for a tire-print Le Pliage Sale


Jeremy Scott, the print-crazy British designer of Flintstones-themed clothing fame, and Longchamp Outlet, the staid French luxury house famous for solid-color nylon totes, might seem like kind of an odd couple on the surface, but the Longchamp x Jeremy Scott Tire Print Le Pliage Tote just goes to prove the old clich̩ Рopposites attract.

I stared at this bag for a few seconds before it hit me that I was looking at tromp l'oeil tire tracks, which has Jeremy Scott written all over it. His prints are thoroughly modern and often unconventional, but I've never seen one that I found too weird or too displeasing to love. He does a great job of bringing pop art to the fashion world, and his designs are often surprisingly useable.

As for the Longchamp Bags portion of this design, I think we all know why the brand's bags are popular. This one is waterproof for bad weather and its no-fuss lines perfectly display Scott's large-scale pattern. The coupling of the two brands is counter-intuitive, but looking at the final product, it makes so much sense. Buy through Colette for $48.
