Longchamp Roseau Embossed ToteWhen I think of British accessory design, I think of clean, straight lines, limited adornment, and functional design and color choices. The Brits, even in their most avant garde incarnations (Alexander McQueen, anyone?) know that a bag has certain duties that it must perform, and it’s kind of useless if the bag doesn’t perform them. And in that regard, the Longchamp Roseau Embossed Toteis so British that its upper lip is probably stiff. Its lines are straight and staid, and it is little more than a flat-bottomed bag with handles, a natural pattern and a simple closure. In this case, though, the beauty is in the simpicity – the bag is so sure of itself that it doesn’t need a gimmick or any bling to be beautiful. Buy through Nordstrom for $380.

    My Longchamp bag was made in France. I’ve always assumed the designers were French. Anyway, the company makes great bags in wonderful colours & the prices are not too bad either!
