Longchamp Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of its Le Pliage Bags

Longchamp, the French luxury leather goods company, recently held an event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic Le Pliage Bag in collaboration with Assouline and artist Sarah Morris. We’re sure you all are in the know, but just in case, the Le Pliage is the lightweight, durable nylon fabric bag, trimmed with “Russian” leather the brand is known for. The event, hosted by CEO, Jean Cassegrain, and Artistic Director, Sophie Delafontaine, featured the bold colors and striking prints from the stunning Jeremy Scott Le Pliage Bag collaboration, as well as a preview of the collection with artist Sarah Morris. The Le Pliage SM Palette Collection is available now and features eight bespoke colors.

Although only one of of the Le Pliage SM Palette Collection was on display, the Totes and Handbags in the collection boasts delicate pastels – Robin’s Egg Blue, Banana, Pink, and Light Grey; bright shades – Kelly Green, Red, and Blue, along with a Classic Black, all of which are available with white or black handles.

We fell in love with the colorful and geometric design of her white Le Pliage Eclipse Tote and Travel Bags, both of which feature a reproduction of an extract from her Total Annual Solar Eclipse painting, from her “Rio” painting series.

For the duration of the event, the crowd was DJ Mad Marj, as we enjoyed wonderful cocktails and incredible hors d’oeuvres. Several attendees took photos inside the Le Pliage bags that cascaded from the ceiling, and showed off their Le Pliage bags.
