For many, Longchamp is synonymous with its iconic Le Pliage bag, which has been in existence for almost 30 years (it debuted 1993). In fact, it was once reported that the brand sells an average of 1.5 million of the classic nylon carryalls a year. And whether or not the bag is your style or a staple in your closet, its popularity is unmatched and impossible to ignore. The bags are incredibly lightweight and durable, because of this, customers keep coming back to revisit the style year after year. And while the brand is known for this timeless silhouette, Longchamp was (and is) so much more than just its Le Pliage line.
The brand offers a variety of other appealing bags, and in past years it has touted Coco Rocha, Alexa Chung, and Kendall Jenner as the face of Longchamp. Additionally, the brand has released collaborations with the likes of Jeremy Scott and Kate Moss. It's long been said that Longchamp is one of the handbag world's most underrated brands, and today we're taking a look back at the Longchamp bags of yesteryear.
