Even in a landscape inundated with collaborations, it is rare to find a marriage of two of the most recognisable bag silhouettes that meld as well as this new design by Longchamp and Filt. The resulting tote bag takes the mesh of the Filt string shopping bag, which has been made in Normandy since 1860, as the base, with the Russian leather handles and flap of Longchamp's best-selling Le Pliage bag, imbuing a fresh energy to these two classics. The bag is available in six colours: white, pink, blue, red, black and khaki green.
“It’s rare for a collaboration to bring together two bags. But I like the idea of a union between two icons that combine to exalt an allure, personality and a little humour”, says Sophie Delafontaine, artistic director of Maison Longchamp. Catherine Cousin, general manager of Maison Filt, goes on to add, “We are honoured and delighted with this collaboration, which is the result of a happy union between two Maisons from distinct worlds, but who share the same values of authenticity and quality. And whilst remembering that unique know-how.”
The Longchamp x Filt tote bag is available in all Longchamp stores, retailing at $160.
