Longchamp unveiled limited edition handbags namely ‘The Peacock Majestic Le Pliage Héritage’ and ‘India the Vibrant Le Pliage Héritage’ inspired by India and only available in the country. In addition to this, the fashion House also debuted its Fall 2017 collection which is inspired by the 1970s Parisian, strong, feminine woman full of contrast who embodies the posture, the attitude and the state of mind of a free, independent and active woman.
