DARK and bold colors of rock ‘n’ roll are in season once again with the launch of Longchamp’s winter/fall 2019 collection.
For Longchamp creative director Sophie Delafontaine’s second show at New York Fashion Week in February, she focused on the traveler’s free-spirited energy with the La Voyageuse line.
In conjunction with the brand’s 70th year, Ms. Delafontaine also introduced “LGP,” the new signature logo which is inspired by 1920s Bauhaus artists and New York’s maze-like grid plan. The new logo is embroidered on several leather pieces such as coats, skirts, dresses, and bags.
Ms. Delafontaine combines the Parisian bohemian style of wavy silk dresses and embroidered tulle or wool gauze pleated skirts with the New Yorker’s urban aesthetic with geometric patterns and animal prints. Such outfits are paired with edgy red, black, and terracotta crossbody and tote bags that are made in patent, leather, velvet, and jacquard.
“The idea was to take the Parisian attitude and silhouettes and mix it with the New York sensibility, which is more urban and graphic,“ Ms. Delafontaine said in an interview with fashion trade journal WWD.
The prices of bags in the La Voyageuse collection range from P32,500 to P128,000. They are exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Cebu and Greenbelt 5. — MAPS
