Longchamp goes glamping for Spring-Summer 2023
FOR SPRING-SUMMER 2023, Longchamp is inspired by glamping — glamorous camping. The collection explores two contrasting yet complementary ambiances. The first takes inspiration from nature, travel, and authenticity. In this section of the collection, Longchamp Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine uses natural materials, including linen, cotton, and silk, while the color palette draws nuances of tan, beige and ecru from the trees, flowers and earth. The second ambiance plays with contrast in a more festive, glamorous, sporty spirit. The collection includes the Le Pliage Cuir bag embellished with metal rivets, which mirror not only the lights of the party, but also the lurex and sequins of the collection. Carrying over the energy of the day, the Epure line is interpreted in a joyful gradation of tie-dye sunrise shades. Ms. Delafontaine envisions the Spring-Summer 2023 collection as a series of combinations between two ambiances, in which fabrics, prints and colors are playfully mixed and match. “You can twist sequins with stripes. You can twist a metallic leather mini-skirt with a two-tone knit crop top and a leather jacket with glitter polka dots. That’s the essence of the daring and dynamic Longchamp woman.” The collection is accompanied by an array of leather goods, which range from elegantly understated to eye-catching. Longchamp has, for instance, reimagined its iconic Roseau bag in cotton and linen embellished with polka dots, and energized its new Box-Trot line with zesty lemon and candy-pink colorways. Meanwhile, new formats make their debut: a small vanity case and a mini hand-held bag. Simple, stylish accessories provide the finishing touch — witness denim baseball caps with the Longchamp racehorse logo — while avant-garde sunglasses take inspiration from snow and water sports. The shoe collection, meanwhile, welcomes new sneakers, clogs and Le Pliage Re-Play sandals. In an unexpected summer collaboration, Fatboy x Longchamp present an inflatable armchair in recycled polyester featuring an outside pocket with a cowhide leather flap from the emblematic Le Pliage bag. This limited edition in eye-popping shades nods to the key codes of the season. Longchamp is exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Cebu, Greenbelt 5, and Rustans.com.
