Another of all my all-time favourite bags from Longchamp besides the Le Pliage collection (yes they do have other bags), is the Longchamp Légende Medium Handbag. Made famous by Kate Moss in one of Longchamp’s earlier ad campaigns, I rarely see this bag being carried around in Singapore. It could be due to 2 reasons. Firstly, Longchamp does not do much in areas of advertising, marketing or promotions in Singapore, and secondly, its only boutique is tucked away at the corner of Paragon. They do have a counter within Takashimaya Department Store, but somehow you get feeling that the focus there is on the Le Pliage collection as well.
But back to the bag at hand. I spotted it yesterday whilst at Paragon, and the one in Pebble (shown above) caught my eye. I love the contrast of the rich calfskin leather against the hardware, and the added charm was just the right touch. Not too fussy, not too much, everything looked just about right. Available in 3 sizes, the one in Medium retails for SGD2014.
