i lived in switzerland in spring and summer of 2004 and did a bunch of travelling between there and paris, and longchamp bags were all the rage... four years ago... now it's catching on at my university campus in montreal haha.
that being said, they are great school bags/beer carriers as someone else mentioned haha. i dont think they're particularly hideous at all..
OMG,every single girl in Boston has one of these...the classic look here is the Longchamp bag, North Face Fleece, and uggs with strech pants!! I'm SOOOO sick of that bag its not even funny...Im sure they are functional though
HAHAHA so true! Thats what all the girls wore in my high school. And its been years and when I go home... the style has not changed one bit!!

Hmm... I don't think so. I have seen lots of them here in the states...even before 2004.
What? The new uggs?! The pliage isn't even half as obnoxious. I've had my mine for years (handy for school) and as of lately have only see a couple of girls with them on campus. Though, fuggs, fleece, leggings and a pliage is a sad combo. Why are people such victims of bad trends? The internet is widely available these days and can give an insight to any joe schmo with a half a brain on what makes people look like a tool shed..
They may be durable, but still that's an insane price for a nylon tote. Anyone who says they are buying longchamp totes for "practicality" or whatever is so kidding themselves. In my opinion this is a sad case of paying for the brand.
The longchamp Le Pliageis also gaining popularitiy where I live! I've seen a couple of girls in my school and outside, an article came out a few months back where it mentioned that this tote is very popular among french students and were competing to see who had the latest colours and such. I totally agree with Blondes.
I don't think this bag is pretty... but other longchamp bags are not too bad!
Yes, London is crowded with women carrying Le Piaget. I think they're great for carrying stuff to work though they're so large things "get lost" in there. Also I got the one with short handles and kinda regret it; it can get very heavy and ends up hurting my back.
They're everywhere in New England. I love the actual Longchamp totes, but I hate the way people carry them around here. In sweatpants and uggs and a sweatshirt or something. If they're going to carry a nice bag around, at least make it look good.
