Longchamp France handbag
The French label Longchamp is synonym with luxury travel and leather goods, made through a high search of quality and a century old handicraft. The style is classic and out of time, and the Longchamp handbags can go through years, seasons and trends without ever getting old. Jean Cassegrain, who launched the label in 1948, was not thinking about entering the fashion world though when he first started working. Owner of a smoke shop, he slowly started to add some leather goods in his windows that really pleased his customers and pushed him to explore the field a bit further. Just like that, Longchamp – named after the Parisian racecourse – was born.
