Longchamp Totes
I've noticed a few people carrying these bags around my school campus. I don't particularly like them. I'm thinking they could potentially become a new Ugg-like trend. What I mean by that is, some people will have them and carry it with a nice outfit, but then EVERYONE will have one and just look blah. Any other opinions on these? They seem like they'd be better suited for more mature women like moms to carry and not young college students.

I have one. Or two! It's my everyday handbag, and yes, it looks nice with almost everything but it frustrates to me to no end how quick they blew up. They're not the most beautiful bags, honestly, but very comfortable and convenient since they come in a bunch of different colours. When I got mine, I didn't even know it was designer until everybody started getting them. Ho hum.

^I live in Boston, everyone at my school carries them!

I agree with previous posts, they aren't the prettiest of bags but they seem very practical. I was thinking about buying one, it would be nice to have a casual roomy carry-all that I could take to class, running errands, and traveling, and they seem like they'd hold up well. But they've gotten so trendy, I'm not sure I want to spend the $150ish to jump on the bandwagon.

I have a black Pliage; my boyfriend brought it back from Paris. I's just a simple bag that goes with everything. Basic and inexpensive without being ugly.

I don't get the attraction. My mums got about fifty bags from the early nineties that looks exactly like these things and imo none of them are that nice! Lol! I'd never use them!

What makes them so attractive to people??

I don't believe I've seen one. Must not be too big of a trend (or if it is, I'm oblivious to it).

I was thinking of getting one when I go to France this summer....but then again no one around where I live has one, or has even heard of them!

They were THE bag trend here about two years ago.. now I don't see them nearly as often.

I think the bigger pliage bags, in black with brown leather handles, are quite nice. Especially for travelling. They last forever, too.

They are popular on my university's campus, but more so as a kind of tote for books and pens as opposed to a purse. However, they do make good beer carriers at parties, I've learned.

you must have seen one dear! as Stella said, they where THE bag two years ago (at least in terms of sales and popularity) VERY surprised there isnt a thread on these already... anyone performed a search?

never particularly liked them...but i must admit i stared at the kate moss ads more than once (even if it wasnt for the bag)


these are the ones we are talking about, no?






credit goes to savagexi.com and ioffer


EDIT: I see them everywhere! college, streets, airports, restaurants, clubs... it's insane!

^ I've never seen them in Britain, but they kinda look like the type of thing you find being sold with a complimentary umbrella at the chemists!

What's the big attraction? I know I've already asked but I sincerely feel like I'm missing something!
