World-renowned for its leather goods, shoes and women’s ready-to-wear clothing, Longchamp has designed a sophisticated, exotic summer collection for the modern, independent and cosmopolitan woman who appreciates French luxury by Longchamp.
LONGCHAMP Summer 2018 Collection
A Rive Gauche resident’s journey to the heart of Africa. From Rue des Beaux-Arts to Boulevard Saint-Germain, this gentle and bohemian woman – an artist or a gallery owner with bold elegance and natural charm – is exploring the world of tribal art, specifically indigenous art and cultures. The materials used and the graphic effects inspired by the grids and highlights typical of African painting and sculpture also serve as sources of inspiration.
Laid-back sophistication is what it’s all about. The Longchamp woman teams a printed silk blouse with leather shorts. A safari jacket – with or without sleeves – in suede or cotton gabardine, complements a smooth leather patchwork skirt. Beautiful flowy dresses in dotted Swiss tulle or embroidered lace look even better when worn with a cropped suede jacket. The cropped jacket in woven fabric and lambskin boasts a resolutely contemporary look. The printed silk stole with leather fringing provides the perfect finishing touch to looks from the Summer 2018 collection.
Leather, an iconic Longchamp material, comes in many different textures: velvety, smooth, printed, delicately woven into chevrons or fringed for a more casual feel. This lambskin leather is combined with feminine embroidered tulle, printed silk, textured jacquard or denim canvas.
Two bag designs epitomize Summer 2018 at Longchamp. The Madeleine bag has had a chic update inspired by indigenous art and cultures and now comes in an edgier version, incorporating different colors – nude and orange and honey and lilac – and materials – bullcalf leather, suede and vachetta – with detailing being given more emphasis for stylish effect. The Effrontée breaks with convention, playing up its sophisticated, rebellious feel. The chain strap and leather give this grainy-feel leather bag its rock and roll appeal.
For its Summer 2018 collection, Longchamp has created a beautiful wooden-soled suede calfskin clog complete with an embossed weave or python print. Its expertise has also been used on some triple-strap flat sandals. Adorned with tiny 3D flowers, this designcomes in smooth leather as well. There are espadrilles with ankle straps and woven rope soles that positively glow with their pink gold metallic leather. Suede lace-up boots with open toes complete this unique look.
Shades of terracotta, burnt sienna, khaki, honey and limestone add warmth to delicate pastels including lilac, powder pink, aqua and pearl. These unusual combinations really lift blue denim, intense black and bright white.
The Summer 2018 collection from Longchamp extends an invitation to travel, offering women an opportunity to embrace different ethnic designs, crafts and traditions.
For Summer 2018, Mademoiselle Longchamp introduces its XS version and three brand new colors: natural, orange and khaki. The details on this new mini calfskin hobo bag feature the line’s signature clasp, enameled wax stamp and wide strap. Match your changing moods with its removable strap and wear it as a crossbody or over the shoulder.
A bold classic for women who cherish their freedom of remarkable flair.
