My appreciation for Longchamp varies widely from season to season, but what I’ve seen so far from Longchamp Spring 2012 has me hopeful for my favorite collection from the brand in years. Although surely most of the brand’s revenue comes from the sale of its ever-popular nylon totes, Le Pliage and otherwise, it would seem as though the brand has taken more care with its leather goods for this season.

That’s just conjecture, but if it’s the case, the results are indeed successful. The colorblock bags and python tote in particular are standout pieces, and they’re also not necessary the kind of thing I’d expect to find from Longchamp. Those unexpected items could go a long way toward expanding the brand’s business, but if you’re still a sucker for Longchamp’s nylon totes, the balloon pattern for spring is adorable.

    I used to be a fan of the classic Le Pliage…until a million fake imitations turned up in the market!

    I used to love Longchamp (and still own a few) but their quality has suffered – The polished leather is veneer – and it separates! Easily! And it shouldn’t. So I’m mostly over Longchamp, alas.

      Agree totally – have had two leather bags and gotten rid of both. Quality very poor – looks and feels like fake leather.

    I’m not a fan of Longchamp but these beags are really nice!

    I own 2 longchamp pliage and one red leather purse from the fall collection? I bought it while in Paris this summer. Love it.

    gasp* are those lanterns?! omgosh it’s pretty…

  • Jackie

    Ahhh! I super like the Le Pliage leather with the shoulder strap! It definitely poops on the original nylon version. I’m not one to purchase something everyone and their mother has but I’ll definitely take it in the leather! Yummm. I hope it’s as soft as it looks.
