Longchamp Madeleine Bag
Longchamp’s handbags are getting better and better with each release. Just a few weeks ago, they dropped the gorgeous and feminine Mademoiselle Bag. We love the French name as well as the perforated design.
For the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, Longchamp introduces another new handbag, the Madeleine Bag. The name Madeleine is a feminine given name and it derives from the well-known Saint Mary Magdalene. Mary’s Magdalene’s name is thought to be inspired from Magdala, which is a village on the Sea of Galilee. Magdala actually means great or magnificent in Aramaic. And Madelein means little girl in German.
However, Longchamp picked the Madeleine name because of the famous La Madeleine district, which is where a lot of embassies, large institutions, art and luxury shops are located. You can find the Madeleine district between Avenue des Champs-Elysees and Rue Saint-Honore.
To create the Madeleine Bag, Longchamp blended the contemporary and classic style together. This top handle features a large flap on the front with streamlined handle and curved lines. This bag is truly a lady’s bag.
Besides the timeless look, the exterior is also crafted with a zipped pocket for the instant-access to your essentials. This bag is not only made to look gorgeous, but also to be practical so you can use it on daily basis.
The Madeleine Bag is also embellished with the signature bamboo clasp on the front flap and it pays tribute to the Parisian imagination of the brand. The true beauty is really within the details like the clean-cut edges, the leather saddlery-style stitches as well as the leather quality that gives the graphic shapes and extra softness and sensuality.
Longchamp is well known for their quality handbags versus affordable price. This brand usually focuses on the practicability as well, take for example the iconic Le Pliage Bag which made to endure. The Madeleine Bag is no difference, the interior comes with 1 patch pocket, 1 zipper pocket, 1 phone pocket, three compartments including one zipped and a key holder. It has everything you need to organize your personal items and it’s spacious as well.
