Renowned for its leather goods, shoes and high-quality women’s ready-to-wear clothing, Longchamp  reveasl its first Cruise collection, synonymous with a modern, independent and cosmopolitan woman who appreciates French luxury.

Their inspiration derives from the Rive Gauche Parisian woman, who likes travelling. This naturally elegant and charming woman explores the wealth of decorative arts from Africa- specifically those of the Maasai tribe, while strolling in the shade of the luxuriant pathways of the Luxembourg Gardens, a true haven of greenery in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris.

Their leather goods patterns are inspired by the Maasai tribe, breathing life into the magnificent prints and exquisite embroidery that adorn the totes, hobo and bucket bags- some of which come with a decorative removable strap.

Fringing, tassels, handcrafted fabrics, beaded decorations and vibrant colours inspired by sub-Saharan African jewellery all feature as precious neo-ethnic details, on the Pénélope, Longchamp 3D, Mademoiselle Longchamp and Roseau bags. Not forgetting the new fringed designs from the Paris Rock line. The graphic style Le Pliage Cuir model in leather is embellished with wide coloured stripes reminiscent of African wall paintings.

However, when it comes to shoes, Longchamp has created a stunning range of espadrilles for their Cruise collection. While all are adorned with ankle straps and braided-rope soles, some are made from velvet leather and others from two-tone or Maasai-printed canvas. Their low-heeled velvet leather boots with cross over straps at the back, such as the fringed moccasins complete the bold, unique look.

Colours such as Sea and aqua blues, are merged with flamboyant cherry reds, which intensify the warm beige, bold black and bright white.

Longchamp’s first Cruise collection offers up an invitation to travel.
