Le Maroquinerie is back!

Happy Monday everyone! What a great weekend, the Olympics has started and I’m sure you are one of the billions of people throughout the world watching the opening ceremonies (I was one too!). Both my sister and I have always been excited to watch this prestigious Olympics Games at home when we were kids (only she has been more successful in the sports arena!) and admiring the athletes.

Mixed of A/W colours - Le Maroquinerie, Le Pliage Cuir (oops taken), Le Pliage tote bags

Voila, the Le Maroquinerie series in Burgundy and Dark Gold

Available now in medium long handles both LM Dark Gold and Burgundy (size: 25x25x14cm)

Beautiful shade of Dark Gold


Ok, we move on to another less sporty side – the limited edition Longchamp Le Maroquinerie line is back now in bold and beautiful A/W 2012 colours. We managed to grab few fast selling colours this season in our short London trip last week. Take a look at the charming Burgundy and sophisticated Dark Gold colours, a must-have keep sake and collectibles!

For those who follow us in our Facebook fanpage, we have posted all the bags in limited pieces and they are ONLY available this time. We had so many Le Maroquinerie fans last time when the Bronze colour was out in the market and as much as we would like to help and get it, they were all sold out.

LM large size long handles (size: 31x30x19cm)



Not forgetting our Le Pliage tote in its new A/W colour ‘Mandarine’, lovely mixed colour of brown/orange

Medium short handles and medium long handles up for a grab!

Based on our experience from the previous years, Longchamp do not replenish their stocks for most of their bags in a season, hence if you miss the season for the colour you specifically want, you will have to re-think your next alternative colour for the up coming season or you can get and purchase preloved bags.

Hope you don’t miss the chance and get them while you can. Enjoy the week and stay tuned with us!

Hugs & smiles xoxo

July 2012–Stylist Picks

July Stylist Picks

Ohh my…we are a little behind schedule on publishing our entries this month due to our hectic travelling, on-going projects (sewing & dressmaking classes), holiday and sometimes running around like a headless chicken Winking smile . Anyway, things have been promising for us in this glorious July, we are happy and so much delighted with the incoming orders from our supportive Diva Darling’s. Thank you all!

As much as we are excited for this summer, weather has been treating us well these couple of days and last weekend in London was perfect (28degC, wee!!). Now, for this July stylist picks, we have hand-picked our favourites and since we are still in a summer mode (although we are going to enter Autumn season soon), you can find beautiful bold colours, lovely summer prints and unique detailing on tops and dresses.

bird print

I’m obsessed with bird prints now, not sure why (the wings, errmm…) and my latest acquisition was the bird print ‘swallows’. I can’t get enough of it and bought chunks of tops and blouses, that includes fabrics for my sewing projects. I adore all bird prints now and hope you will not get bored of looking at them.

Enjoy lovely readers, we hope you like them and stay tuned with us - we have more surprises and juicy stories coming soon - Longchamp Autumn/Winter 2012 collection fresh from the shop!

**Personal shoppers are open now for online retailers and blog shops, you can write us details of what type of design, collection and labels/brands you would like us to find for you. We are happy to quote for wholesale prices. You can send us your details here.

Smiles, hugs and smootchessss xoxo Smile
