What do Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, and Clémence Poésy have in common? Je ne sais quoi, the ineffable sense of nonchalant poise and effortless style that makes French women inherently cool. That unreserved and insouciant spirit is exactly what Longchamp strives (and succeeds) to capture in the Mademoiselle line of leather goods.
First introduced two years ago as a hobo bag, the collection gets an update for the Spring/Summer 2020 season in the form of a new bucket bag shape. With a structured yet slouchy silhouette and capacious interior, the latest Mademoiselle iteration is fuss-free, functional, and faultlessly fashionable. Conspicuously unadorned, the bag distinguishes itself with subtle details like a button clasp and an enamel-finished wax seal, the hallmarks of Longchamp’s fine craftsmanship.
There’s also an adjustable strap so the bag can be carried over the shoulder or slung across the body for a classic or contemporary feel, respectively. Crafted from a combination of smooth cowhide and velvety calfskin, the style comes in several rich colourways, including cognac brown, matte black, grey sand, powder blue, and poppy red.
The Mademoiselle Longchamp Bucket Bags are available at all Longchamp boutiques.
