For one reason or another, I just can’t get behind Longchamp‘s leather bags over the past few seasons, and sadly, Spring 2011 continues that trend. The pieces go from too mundane to overworked quickly, with only a seafoam python shoulder clutch holding any kind of middle ground between the two extremes.

Luckily for Longchamp, the non-leather patterned bags go a long way toward bailing out this collection. They have the easy French femininity that many of the other pieces lack, and the oversized scale of the flower print on the totes and suitcase ensures that they maintain a bit of modernity.

    The birds tote (le pliage?) is my favorite here. Those bags are what the brand does best.

    I don’t mind the ones with flower petals on it. It’s quite fresh and fun.

    The suitcase is nice, but that’s about it. I have never been a real fan of Longchamp. Mostly because I thought that they were really expensive for what they sell.

    I’m also loving the Pliage with the birds… wonder what sizes they come in. I’d been thinking of a new shoulder Pliage for a while and this is definitely prettier than a plain one!

    I like the turquoise handbag – I think it is very cute and versatile: you could wear it with a pair of jeans or with a dress. And the big flower prints are great for summer.
