Off topic... Longchamp bag

 

I am thinking of purchasing a small longchamp la pliage bag. Does anyone own a similar bag? How do you like it in terms of functionality, quality, etc.?

Re: Off topic... Longchamp bag

I use the Longchamp large Planetes as a carry-on whenever I travel (it also comes in a small and medium size). I like it a little better than the Le Pliage-line bags because I feel it is constructed a bit better.  However, it does not fold like the Le Pliage.  What will your primary use for this bag be?  Do you need it to fold?

   

Re: Off topic... Longchamp bag

The folding isn't a big deal to me, I'm more concerned about the material because I see a lot of people getting holes at the bottom of their bag. I understand that it's wear and tear bit if it tears easily, I might as well invest in a different bag.

Re: Off topic... Longchamp bag

The material on the Planetes bags is a bit heavier.  I was originally going to get a Le Pliage to use as an overnight carry-on type of bag, but I did not like the feel of the fabric.  I like the fabric on the Planetes much better.  It is also very easy to spot clean with just a little water on a soft cloth. I would get a Le Pliage only to use as a protector for my more expensive handbags while going through TSA.  HTH.

Thank you! I will look into that. Will probably go in store so I can actually see the material 

Re: Off topic... Longchamp bag

If you do decide to purchase it, but you don't need to have it right away, maybe it would be a good idea to wait until the summer designer sales in June-July so that you can purchase it at a discount.  From what I remember of previous years, the sale should be available both in-stores and online for the U.S.  They usually have discounts anywhere from 30-50% for past-season bags and accessories. 

Re: Off topic... Longchamp bag

Do you know if the sale is specifically on their own website and their store?

Re: Off topic... Longchamp bag

Yes, the sale prices would be available on Longchamp's own website and boutiques. Last year, I remember that their sale was going on around the same time as France's national summer sales, so I usually use that as a rough guide point. I've also seen Longchamp items go on sale at Nordstroms but I'm not sure when they get discounted, and the selection might not be as comprehensive as what Longchamp themselves put out for the summer sales season. Good luck finding your perfect bag! Smiley Happy

Thank you!

Bloomingdale's often has sales where you can get these bags for a significant discount.
