10 Timeless Must-Haves From Longchamp, Aside From the Le Pliage
These handbags, wallets, and purses make great additions to your staples.
(SPOT.ph) Those of us who are more practical tend to scoff at the idea of "designer" fashion. Oftentimes, luxury brands carry items with outrageous price tags that don’t always warrant the splurge—would you blow P77,000 on a fancy paper clip, for example? But if you know how to choose and what to look for, many high-end brands also offer investment pieces that promise timeless style and durability—items you'll get lots of use out of for years to come, thereby making the splurge a practical one that you'll be thankful for later on.
One such example is Longchamp. Best known for their line of Le Pliage bags, the French brand has handbags, purses, wallets, and more that are stylish, practical, and when properly taken care of, will be by your side for ages. In case you already own a Le Pliage or you’re looking for something else from the brand worth investing your hard-earned coins on, we round up some timeless must-haves from Longchamp you can shop now. They’ve got more to offer than you might realize!
