3 new Longchamp bags you need this Spring/Summer 2022
All set for a fantastic Spring/Summer 2022? Then these Longchamp bags are ones you need in your wardrobe.
Ever since its first unveiling last September, Longchamp has gotten us hooked to its Spring/Summer 2022 collection – a collection inspired by the beauty of the south of France.
Celebrtating the French art de vivre, the Spring/Summer 2022 collection highlights the use of linen towels (created in collaboration with Maison Charvet) and intricate embroidery details to evoke an intimate and summery look and feel.
In our recent interview with her, creative director Sophie Delafontaine says, “I wanted to speak about the beauty of the South of France and showcase the idea of a family home in that region, where we can finally meet and gather again with our family and friends to enjoy the French art de vivre with sunshine, warmth and great cuisine.”
But today, let’s put our focus on our favourite things from Longchamp – the bags. This Spring 2022 sees a wide array of new silhouettes including Cuir de Russie, Le Pliage Paris St Tropez, and the Roseau bucket.
The first is an icon within the house of Longchamp – the Roseau, which is a bag with over three decades of history behind it. The Roseau is perhaps the ultimate symbol of its leather heritage and savoir-faire and this season, sees the new look dressed in a variety of finishes.
Now the icon has been reimagined in the hands of Sophie in the form of a structured bucket bag starring the signature bamboo clasp.
From supple leather to the cotton canvas with floral motifs and LGP jacquard canvas with black Russian leather trim, the Roseau bucket (which comes in various sizes) captures the easy, insouciant spirit of the season and transitions perfect on all occasions – be it the streets of Paris or the quaint farmer’s market in Provence.

On a summery note, one of the quintessential bags we must have is a good straw basket bag and Longchamp’s answer is the Le Pliage Paris St Tropez bag.
Another versatile bucket bag to add to your list, the Le Pliage Paris St Tropez bag reimagines the classic Le Pliage design with a Provence touch that features the horse icon embroidered on the straw-effect fabric.
Spacious and light, the bag is your perfect beach party or garden soiree partner for that effortless casual chic look.

And finally, the last bucket variation from Longchamp is the Cuir de Russie bucket bag. The Longchamp famous cuir de Russie (translated as Russian leather) has always been known to be used to create the flap and handles of the iconic Le Pliage bag.
But for Spring/Summer 2022, this specific leather moves from a supporting role to the main star for the Cuir de Russie bucket bag, which highlights a structured body and distinctive grained leather texture.
Unlike the usual Le Pliage that has a zip closure, the Cuir de Russie is an open bag with a snap button closure for a minimal, yet statement design. With six distinctive shades of colour, the Cuir de Russie is a true icon set to take over the scene.
And the best way to sport this bag is to style the bag handle with a colourful Longchamp silk scarf from the Spring/Summer 2022 collection. C’est parfait!
