Me & Longchamp

Sasha Pivovarova in Longchamp's Fall 2010 catalog

The fact that Diva Darling adores handbags is a very badly kept secret! At the moment it’s Longchamp’s creations which have the collective office pulse racing. The leather goods designer, founded in France in 1948, mixes sophistication with modern sensibilities making us girls feel like proper grown-ups in a way many ultra-edgy designers cannot.

The many colours of Longchamp Le Pliage!

LM Bronze tote bronze - so divine!

The LM Bronze tote is luxurious in every way but doesn’t come with the luxurious price tag. Made from Longchamp’s signature material, leather, it is a classic design which will always be stylish. The bronze colour is the perfect choice for autumn and cries out to be worn with creams and browns. It will turn your smart-casual outfit from everyday to fabulous.

Ordered for our high profile client (on it's way)

Launched in 1993 the Le Pliage collection is one of Longchamp’s most successful. Combining designer opulence with everyday functionality the Le Pliage collection is affordable and useful (Tell your boyfriends girls!). All the bags in the collection are designed to fold-away, making them easy to store (perfect for an already jam-packed wardrobe) and a holiday staple (no one will be able to say- “do you really need all those handbags?”). Diva-Darling has two current favourites in the collection, the classic Le Pliage Red Tote and the Le Pliage with Insect design. (email us if you want to get them!)

You can also get it in many colours ;)

The classic Red Tote is exactly what every girl needs to ensure she never has a bad fashion day. It is a wardrobe staple made from vinyl with a leather trim. Its instantly recognisable design in such a vibrant colour is definitely an investment for seasons to come. The more playful graphite tote with insect motif is for the braver fashionista who likes to keep things edgy but that’s not to say it’s difficult to wear. Worn with simple tailoring it is sure to be a talking-point in the office!

Whichever Longchamp bag you choose, you’ll know you’ve made a good decision. Teamed with a pair of beautiful black patent Louboutins, or the high-street equivalent for those like myself, and a beautifully cut trench coat, (Burberry’s taupe coloured trench is gorgeous!) every girl will feel ready to take on the world this coming autumn.

Happy shopping girls!
