My Longchamp Le Pliage

I thought nothing of the Longchamp Le Pliage when I first discovered the bags. Sure, my mates were carrying them to class, but despite all the hype, I wasn’t interested and couldn’t understand how a plain bag became so coveted.

Anyway, when my mum went to Paris last year, she was shopping for Longchamp bags. She came back with a few bags from the Le Pliage line, showing them off to me. I didn’t get it.

I continued not getting it until I tried the bag myself.

When I went for my honeymoon late last year, Mama offered to lend me one of her Le Pliage bags as I was running out of appropriate bags for traveling. I accepted the offer thinking that the bag will come in handy — it’s light, it’s spacious and it seemed durable.

During my trip I stashed so many things inside the bag. Considering it’s lightweight, I could throw in things without worrying it’d be too heavy. The large bag could accommodate my wallet, travel guide, bottled water, A4-sized documents and even my Macbook. Despite enduring a lot of weight, the bag showed no sign of distress.

So maybe this is the appeal. It’s very practical!

Past the trip, I thought it’d be good to have a Le Pliage in the large size as a daily bag. It’s just my luck that Mama went on a Longchamp haul in Paris and when she returned, offered me a piece!


Figured that a large tote in navy would do me a lot of good. New day bag woohoo!

Anyway, my mum has a lot of bags from her shopping haul and she’s letting some the bags go. We’ve got the Le Pliage in different colors and sizes and you can get them here.

    the planetes line from longchamp is made of thicker material and is more durable, in my opinion
