Scott for the Long Run

Longchamp is a company originally founded by Jean Cassegrain. The company started out making leather coverings for smokers pipes out of the Loire valley countryside. In more recent times the company is more prominently known for their Le Pliage line which includes bag designs similar to the ones displayed above. The simple clean bag design is one of the most recognizable bags that you will ever come across in the market. 
Designer Jeremy Scott has partnered with Longchamp to lend his creative abilities to their line. What you see above are the offspring of that beautiful union, a collection of children that any parent can be proud of. I am a fan of the bags in this collection, I consider this a refreshing addition to a classic label; very nice indeed.
