The Perfect Everyday Handbag for a Farmgirl - Longchamp Le Pliage

All the handbags I have in my wardrobe, my totes are the most used because they're the most practical bags ever. I've had numerous handbags from different brands but I feel like nothing compares to the classic Longchamp Le Pliage nylon bag.

Longchamp is a french luxury leather goods company which took inspiration from Origami - the Japanese art of paper folding to create their best selling bag collection - Le Pliage. The word "Le Pliage" means "to fold" in French. As the name suggests the bags can be folded to a smaller size.

Longchamp bags collections are made of leather or nylon. My favourite Le Pliage range are the ones made of nylon throughout with a leather flap which features their classic logos showing a jockey on a horse. Leather handles in brown or a matching colour in some styles help transform this nylon tote into a sophisticated and classic tote bag.

The bag I purchased was the Longchamp Le Pliage in the size small. I bought the bag in the colour navy. The bag is navy with brown leather features and cream stitching.
Here's what the bag looks like when it is folded up.

I bought this bag in Selfridges, London for £70. I believe this bag is definitely worth the investment!
When I was deciding what colour I should purchase, I was having a chat with Selfridges employee. She was so helpful and friendly! She told me that these bags were very popular because they are waterproof - this is a huge advantage for those who may have to walk to collage or work! What's worse then walking home after a long day and it starts raining with your laptop or school books in your bag? This bag is definitely a solution for that problem!

The strap are the perfect length! They can be worn both or your shoulder or in the crook of your arm!

I recommend the size large for students or for people who like to carry everything along with their kitchen with them. The bag has one main compartment and then one small side pocket. I usually carry my ID, phone and lipstick in the small side pocket!

Here's some photos of the beautiful features on the bag!

For anyone looking for a good quality bag I definitely recommend this one for you! The great thing about Longchamp is that they are available in a variety of colours and sizes! I haven't stopped using this bag since I've bought it! I LOVE IT!
