LA VIE EN MODE
Liberty, equality, fraternity, fashion and horse races – traditional French legacies – merge in Longchamp’s (named after the race course) glorious Le Pliage Cocarde range. The roomy foldable nylon tote saw the brand and French couture gallop to the international fashion scene’s finish line, where it has remained for 20 years. For French National Day (July 14) the avant-garde design’s patriotic tricolour overhaul in navy-blue wool-felt, red leather handle and white stripes has us Longchamping at the bit. Price on request.
