Sophie Delafontaine drew inspiration for the just-released Longchamp Madeleine collection of bags from the iconic La Madeleine district. Dotted with theatres and exclusive bistros, this area in the 8th arrondissement of Paris is also where Longchamp opened its first store on Rue Saint Honoré nearly 30 years ago.
The Longchamp Madeleine is a truly feminine bag – exquisite and charmingly retro – with sleek graphic contours and legendary Longchamp craftsmanship, made from sumptuously supple taurillon calfskin that is simply divine.
This exquisitely detailed handbag is the perfect accomplice for the discerning Parisian woman who embraces diverse styles. She’ll appreciate the raw edging, the saddle-stitched leather, and the wide flap signed with the time-honoured, gleaming Roseau clasp. She’ll like its well-designed interior layout and classic palette with colours like striking black, charming khaki, seductive amethyst, and soft terracotta.
In typical Longchamp style, yet another lovely story unfolds… Once upon a time there was the Longchamp Madeleine, a bag of rare grace whose favourite place to be was in the hands of an ultra-modern woman.
French luxury House Longchamp was founded in Paris in 1948 by Jean Cassegrain, and is still owned and run by the Cassegrain family today. Longchamp’s luggage, handbags, and accessories have a worldwide reputation for craftsmanship, quality, which now extends to shoes and ready-to-wear collections.
The brand has maintained momentum and energy across the decades. It epitomizes French flair, fresh and inspiring creativity, as well as sharing the active lives of women across the world who enjoy a touch of luxury every day.
