LONGCHAMP

To celebrate Chinese New Year, the French luxury brand has teamed up with popular Chinese fashion blogger Tao Liang, also known as Mr. Bags, to reinterpret its iconic foldable bag.

The limited edition Mr. Bags for Longchamp collection comprises a medium-sized tote ($745), a travel bag ($1,305) and a clutch ($285).

The tote comes in three colours - black, pink and sky blue - and since it's the Year of the Dog, has an added pair of paw prints in white fur.

The larger travel bag also features a zippered pocket in the back of the bag to hold a phone and travel documents and the clutch comes with enough space for keys, a card and a smartphone and can be attached to the outside of the bag like a charm or carried separately.

The Mr. Bags for Longchamp collection is available exclusively at the Paragon boutique.
