There is a club for men- for Longchamp gentlemen, that is. World-renowned for its leather goods, Longchamp is also a place for men. The members of this club include prominent men from all walks of life and station. Art aficionados, casual dressers, urban warriors- all donning pieces from the wardrobe that Longchamp creates for them every season, articles they can find in the space designed just for men at 271 rue Saint-Honoré in Paris.
For Summer 2018, Longchamp is unveiling ‘Zanzibar’. A new line inspired by the superior quality of hides from South Africa. Metis leather dyed in black or cognac, selected for its smooth fine grain and unparalleled suppleness. Metal zippers accentuate the casual look of the line’s four styles: a cross-body bag in two sizes, a briefcase, and a messenger bag. The hot-stamped diamond logo harking back to the French insignia for a tobacconist, the birthplace of Longchamp.
The sophisticated and timeless Le Foulonné family- a legacy Longchamp line created in 1975 crafted in grained leather- now comes in navy. It is also expanding to include two-tone briefcases in taupe/orange or mocha/ocean, with contrasting piping and edges reminiscent of great business wear classics.
Ruban gets colourful and more graphic. Orange, ocean and amber brighten up the standard black briefcase, high-tech case, zippered clutch and expandable travel bag. As always, Longchamp remembers the diehard travellers with new two-tone rolling suitcases in black/orange or black/ocean with a combo of polycarbonate and leather detailing.
Stylish globetrotters will love the Ulysse travel bag. The curve of the handles, elegant top- stitching, embossed signature, angular necktie-tip finishes, and luggage tags are just some of the details that showcase the rounded lines of refined bull-calf leather.
And nothing says getaway like the limited edition of Paddle bags. Canvas with a colourful paddle pattern inspired by the nautical board sport, a close cousin of surfing. It tastefully glides with the black leather finishes. A shoulder strap for toting around the city or on strolls along a sunny beach.
In Summer 2018, Longchamp is expanding the men’s wardrobe. It’s designing well- appointed stylish Longchamp 271 shoes with an original approach to the classic urban sneaker. Velvety soft leather with espadrille-like rope soles in tobacco, navy and khaki – the latest staple of your spring wardrobe.
With its Summer 2018 creations for men, Longchamp, is all about natural elegance.
