Longchamp: F/W17 Colours For Nylon Le Pliage

Categories:Other Brands


It’s been a while since I did one of these regarding the new colours that Longchamp’s ever popular Nylon Le Pliage will come in. A tad bit of info for those not in the know, Nylon Le Pliage colours change season after season and can include new colours as well as reintroductions from previous seasons, depending on the line-up from the brand’s design team. And for Fall-Winter 2017, there’s a total of 7 colours you can choose from, for the girly-girl to the more neutral amongst you who want something that’s a tad more timeless.

From Amethyst to Curry, Myrtille to Rouge, there’s also Paon, Pivoine and Putty, all of which you’ll see once you walk into any Longchamp boutique. Upon closer inspection, there are colours that are really fun (Amethyst, Paon and Rouge), that all contrast nicely against the Nylon Le Pliage’s signature brown leather flap. The other 4, Amethyst, Curry, Myrtilleand Putty, are quieter, more neutral (but no less beautiful) colours that go with your everyday outfit.

And in case you have forgotten, the Nylon Le Pliage range comes in a number of shapes that include tote bags (they come with a longer handle) and top handle bags (a shorter and handier version), as well as backpacks and document holders. A true classic in every sense of the word, which of these seven colours will you be adding to your collection?

Recently, there’s a hobo trend going on at the house of Louis Vuitton, but we also need to say that their hobo’s are getting prettier and lovelier. Remember the Louis Vuitton Tuileries Hobo Bag, another hit in the fashion world. But now let’s introduce the latest Louis Vuitton Triangle Softy Bag, just launched for the Spring Summer 2017 Collection. This bag is inspired by Nicolas Ghesquiere’s search for the essence of Parisian elegance; this piece is a statement maker.

What we’ve seen Louis Vuiton doing more these days, is transforming normal handles in braided handles. This new design looks modern and fabulous; it creates and interesting touch to its overall appearance. The body features the house’s iconic monogram canvas and the modern monogram reversed canvas. The bottom edges are refined with black leather and golden studs for an urban look. And we’ve to say that the black leather on the handles, on the sides of the zip and the corners do enhance the golden hardware that has been embellished around the bag. It just shines.

The bag is made with double-faced construction, if you look closely, there is a zip option on the top, but there is also a zipper on the side. The side zipper opens another small pocket for your instant-essentials, and although it looks stunning, the side zip might be not so practical for security reason.

Here are the details:

Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Triangle Softy Bag
Size: 17.7’ x 12’ x 6.3’ inches
Prices: $2540 USD, €1880 euro, £1750 GBP, $3200 CAD, $21700 HKD, $3350 AUD, ¥308880 JPY

Louis Vuitton Monogram Flower Triangle Softy Bag
Size: 17.7’ x 12’ x 6.3’ inches
Prices: $4550 USD, €3200 euro, £2980 GBP, $5500 CAD, ¥511920 JPY

Hermès Is Bringing Its Hermèsmatic Pop-Up to NYC

Categories:Other Brands


Though Hermès bags are more in my wheelhouse, Hermès scarves have a massive following as well (just check out this scarf of the day thread!). There are so many scarves released by the brand, signifying the year, the theme, a color story, and beyond. Though the house is very old in some ways, in others Hermès is young and fresh with initiatives like this. For a few days this month in NYC, Hermès is bringing it’s Hermèsmatic Pop-Up Store to the city which allows customers to give their Hermès silk scarves a sprucing up.

This pop-up allows you to take part in the complementary dip dye wash program where you can bring your vintage scarves and have them updated via washing machines and dip-dying. There are some photos floating around that show before and afters and while the change of color is nice, the entire set-up seems like quite the experience. Every detail is thought out to make it a very Hermès event from the retro laundromat to the orange washing machines, orange waiting seats, and Hermès washing powder.

A member on our forum, Pegase, shared a wealth of knowledge about the Hermèsmatic Pop-Up as it’s a traveling event hitting other major cities and she’s already visited. Pegase reports you can bring as many scarfs as you’d like to have dip dyed and it’s free. When she visited in Munich, there were 6 colors you could choose from, Gray, Violet, Red, Olive, Yellow, Pink and Red. Once you have your scarf treated, you pick it up two days later as it needs to be washed, dyed and washed again. The scarves are returned to you in a special canvas pouch and they give you Hermès soap in a cube, but you have to ask for it! It’s important to note that Hermès won’t take responsibility for the results as they can not tell you what the final version your scarf will look like.

I included some photos from the other pop-ups and results, but if you’re in NYC and can stop by, take a scarf and try this out and share with us how it goes! There’s a long thread on the PurseForum discussing this, so you could meet up with other tPFers and even if you don’t have a scarf, it’s probably a sight to see. Event details are below:

Hermèsmatic Pop-Up Store 
90 Gansevoort Street, New York
Wednesday, June 14 through Sunday, June 18, 2017
11:00am – 8:00pm
