The New It Bag That’s Equal Parts Chic And Simple

The effortless and elegant addition your wardrobe needs.

There’s something about handbags that feels that little bit special.

Not just a vessel for carrying our everyday essentials, they’re often an extension of ourselves, communicating our style and personality to the world.  

Finding the perfect bag that not only complements your look, but that is stylish and sophisticated enough to make a statement on its own, is often the final piece of the outfit puzzle.

The bag that ticks all the boxes? Longchamp’s Box-Trot.

At once effortless and elegant, its sleek, boxy shape embodies the free-spirited Parisienne, and is the very definition of French chic.

Here’s why we’re making it our must-have accessory of the season.

A Size For All

When it comes to style, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. That’s why the Box-Trot comes in three sizes, all large enough for your essentials, but never so big as to weigh you down.

The medium cross-body bag comes with two adjustable straps for creating different looks, so you can wear it short, long, or anything in between. A smaller version can be styled with or without a strap, and the mini format is perfect for carrying those night-out must-haves, hands-free.

And they’re all in the Box-Trot’s signature shape: chic and structured, with a classic geometric form.

Think of it as a classic twist on a structural aesthetic, with a curvaceous fluidity that speaks to the modern sophistication of those who live life on the go.

Colour Your World

While we love a traditional, neutral-toned bag, there’s something to be said for a bag that makes a statement.

The Longchamp Box-Trot comes in five colours: a timeless black and cognac for French simplicity, a bold orange, cool cypress and an on-trend lilac, so there’s something to suit every mood.

At the centre of each design is the intricately worked, superscaled medallion in pale gold-tone metal, featuring the brand’s signature emblem. It’s a nod to the brand’s equestrian heritage, serving as an elegant tribute to the bag’s embodiment of the dynamic and free wearer.

Made To Last

Of course, the perfect bag is made to last, with the Box-Trot made with Longchamp’s signature French savoir-faire and craftsmanship.

Each iteration of the Box-Trot is crafted from smooth, calfskin leather with a slight patina, with a lining made from split velvet cowhide.

Combining heritage techniques with a forward-facing design aesthetic, for a refined yet casual finish, the Box-Trot is the It bag at the centre of our wish lists.
