I am not a massive fan of Longchamp, not because I don’t like the designs or anything else but only for the fact they’re just too common!! Every other person has a Longchamp bag and I for one like to own things that not everyone would have. Now, Mary Katrantzou; many of you, including myself, who don’t know much about her would be intrigued to know, won the Emerging Talent Ready-to-Wear award at British Fashion Awards in 2011. A Central Saint Martins graduate, she has already collaborated with TopShop and Longchamp. There were talks about the Longchamp collaboration a couple of months ago and they have finally arrived in Selfridges.
The range of Longchamp bags that Mary has designed are fun, vibrant and a great accessory for any outing! As I’ve mentioned in my previous post I shall be embarking on my holiday soon and this LONGCHAMP Mary Katrantzou digital travel bag is enticing me by the minute! I like the fact not everyone would have it and I would be able to spot my bag a mile away. I love the Chinese inspired lantern design and the flowers- reminds me of the Chinese printed cloth from which they used to make their traditional clothes. Chances are I may have clicked on the buy button by the end of this post.
Selfridges is selling these bags at the moment. Pricing starts from £94 so they don’t exactly come cheap. She has done four designs for Longchamp from what I can see on Selfridge’s website- small, medium, digital tote and digital travel bag. To buy or view these bags in detail, please click here.
