Wait, what’s this Le Pliage Cuir? In the handbag world, it’s a sui generis bag from Longchamp brand that is foldable and portable with exclusive leather. But in literal sense, the French word Pliage means fold and Cuir refers to leather. Why leather though? Well, you see – this new bag in Le Pliage collection is made up of a special highly supple – Metis leather, instead of the original “Russian leather” or nylon canvas body.
Don’t just think it as a mere bag, as it’s more! Yes, the two words – Le Pliage says all about the history of Longchamp brand, one of the best brands since 1993, named on a notable horse track on the outskirts of Paris. The long long story of Le Pliage initiated by Jean Cassegrain in 1948, as he got enlivened by the creative art of Origami, and thus this much coveted and emblematic bag was formed.
Away from the traditional Le Pliage, this new creation was formed with a whole new duo of lambskin and goatskin, called as Metis leather, a subtle and resistant version that was much more durable and stylish than the previous version. And, there was no doubt that this Cuir was as easily foldable as the original nylon canvas. So you can say that the design of this new Le Pliage model contain all the initial signature of Le Pliage. Besides this ingenious foldaway character the Cuir boasts dual flat top handles, removable and adjustable flat shoulder strap, top zipper, snap flap closure and glistening hardware.
Carry as you wish; from morning to evening, in office, in weekend, for elegant look or for casual, on the weekends. Also, you are offered Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir in a rich color palette, with even the value of personalization now. Although the shades and shapes are inspired by the original version, this one is more versatile in nature. All in all, simplicity and sophistication are the key features of this classic and timeless design.
What’s so special about its interior? Well, it’s spacious and super-duper light in nature. Fit in what you like inside, and still it’s durable to stuff more without breaking apart, stuff your beloved laptop inside and even more!
