Longchamp’s Fall-Winter 2024: City Chic Takes Centre Stage

Imagine a woman who thrives on the energy of the city, a woman who embraces community and draws strength from connection. This is the muse for Longchamp’s Fall-Winter 2024 collection, a celebration of dynamic style and effortless elegance.

This season, the Longchamp woman prioritises both comfort and confidence. Sophie Delafontaine, the brand’s artistic director, describes the collection as “a balance between elegance and sensuality, not forgetting a certain dynamism and a good dose of well-being.”

Think luxurious, yet practical, stretch leather – a Longchamp signature. This innovative material allows for a second-skin fit, perfect for the woman constantly on the go. The bonus? It’s machine washable and travel-friendly, eliminating the need for fussy care. Imagine a chic t-shirt dress in this material, easily transitioning from casual to sophisticated with a well-placed belt. Freedom of movement extends throughout the collection, with a focus on comfortable yet stylish knitwear.

Longchamp’s commitment to sustainability shines through with the use of recycled polyester. This eco-conscious material takes centre stage in the standout kimono jacket, featuring a luxurious taffeta effect. It’s a versatile piece that effortlessly transitions from office to evening, a testament to the collection’s core principle of adaptability.

The collection also pays homage to Longchamp’s iconic Le Pliage bag. The Cabas Longchamp Re-Play, crafted from repurposed nylon remnants, offers a sustainable twist on a beloved classic. Further nods to the Le Pliage legacy appear in a playful jacket pocket that echoes the bag’s signature flap.

Another two bags are also poised to become instant classics: the Daylong, a new calfskin leather tote inspired by bowling bags, with the potential to become a future icon. The other star is the Le Roseau, a timeless classic reimagined with a sleek, architectural design. Launched over 30 years ago, it returns with a modern update, solidifying its place in the Longchamp legacy.

Another highlight is the Parisian trench coat, reimagined with the dynamic spirit of the American Teddy jacket. It’s a perfect blend of Parisian chic and modern edge.

For footwear, the Longchamp woman has two options: elegant ballet flats, inspired by the grace of dancers, or boots with a comfortable sneaker sole, ideal for navigating city streets in style.

The Fall-Winter 2024 collection offers a vibrant palette of greens and oranges, alongside softer hues like clay, paper, nude, and celadon. From the versatile kimono jacket to the unexpected pairing of a blazer with a hoodie, this collection is an ode to individual style and effortless confidence. This is city chic redefined – a celebration of the modern woman who embraces life with grace and dynamism.
