This large Longchamp tote bag has shearling on one side and full leather on the other. It is a limited edition piece. Longchamp continues to enjoy one hit bag after another. After the French accessory house's hit Légende bag, which became a must-have for stylish celebrities from Kate Moss to Madonna, the company's new Cosmos bag tops the A-list wish list. In recent weeks, Claudia Schiffer, Ivanka Trump and Lou Doillon have all been spotted carrying luxury versions of this bag, from New York to Paris. Schiffer and Trump were photographed by the paparazzi with the black fur models, while Doillon slurped up hers in moka at a rock festival.
What began as a simple wallet displayed in a tobacco shop in 1948, has evolved into the luxury brand we know and adore. Longchamp's founder, Jean Cassegrain, began his career owning a tobacco store that wanted more out of the accessories for smokers. With the help of a leather supplier next door, slowly Cassegrain found himself in the leather goods business, replacing his cigarettes for bags. Longchamp has expanded its leather bag and accessory collection to include the infamous nylon 'Le Pliage' tote collection in the early 90s. Today, Longchamp remains the go-to brand for refine accessories; from 'Le Pliage', 'Planetes' to the 'Légende' collections, you can't help but covet them all.
