It’s been slightly over a decade since American designer Jeremy Scott collaborated with Longchamp on designing limited edition Le Pliage bags. But that doesn’t stop us from wanting the French label’s eye-catching bag season after season.
“The staying power lies in the Le Pliage bag’s ability to be transformed. It’s the brand’s icon! It can be THE look of the season for every collection. Simply put, it’s the perfect medium for creativity,” said Jeremy Scott.
This year, it’s the “Long Distance Call” bag, inspired by a trip to space. Against a black background of the universe, the 80’s style graphic print bag is covered in stars, gum ball looking planets and Barbie doll pink phones. A reinvention of the fall/winter 2009 “Phone Print” but with lots more fun and whimsy.
“We have been on the same wave length from the start. Jeremy brings us his energy, optimism and passion for color plus his sense of humor, which are all values that have been part of Longchamp’s DNA forever,” said Longchamp Artistic Director Sophie Delafontaine.
The “Jeremy Scott for Longchamp” Le Pliage bag is available exclusively at Colette now, and will retail at $430 at Longchamp boutiques in Singapore from mid July 2016.
