If you own multiple pieces of Longchamp’s Le Pliage Original (yes, the very first design in the Le Pliage line), you will be familiar with the brown leather on the bag’s flap, handle and side trimmings. Never overshadowed by the lightweight nylon, this durable leather gained popularity for its scratch-proof properties and textured surface.
This even prompted Longchamp to delve into an entirely new category of bags and SLGs celebrating the hardy cowhide leather.
Longchamp’s Épure line made its debut earlier this year, with two additional micro styles launched recently. Firstly, meet the Phone Case With Leather Lace (SGD275). Measuring just 17 cm high and 8.5 cm wide, it holds your mobile device and other small essentials. Style it around your neck or wear it across the body; the choice is all yours.
The other stylish option is the Coin Purse With Leather Lace (SGD315) at 10 cm wide and 8.5 cm high. It contains two card slots, so you don’t have to carry an extra wallet. Think of it as the Le Pliage Original’s flap transforming into a miniature bag all on its own.
Both bags are stamped with Longchamp’s equestrian logo with a gold-tone press stud. They come in colours like Black and Fuchsia, complete with matching coloured leather lace straps. Tiny in size but big in terms of style and function, these new-in additions to Longchamp’s Épure family await your favour.
