Before Longchamp became the design house it is today, it used to be a small smoke shop in France. After finding success, the company started creating leather goods, including women's handbags. Now, the designer brand is paying homage to its Parisian roots with the Très Paris Spring-Summer 2021 Collection.
You can see some of the handbags in the collection in Longchamp's film Très Paris. The film blurs the lines between fantasy and reality—all while being set in the city of endless possibilities: Paris. The trendy young women, picturesque views (including that of the Eiffel Tower), and stylish fashion choices all come together to capture the joie de vivre of the city.

Bringing refined Parisian style and sophistication yet again, Longchamp’s Roseau, Brioche, and Mailbox bags showcase unique silhouettes that go well with any look—not to mention ooze that French je ne sais quoi that we all want to express in our style choices. Below, we rounded up the top picks from the collection:
1. Extra Small Roseau Croco in Jade
Just like the modern French woman, the Roseau bag is distinctly urban yet resolutely timeless. The Roseau Croco in jade plays in volume and style with its compact size and subtle texture—making it an ideal go-to handbag wherever and whenever. Thanks to its unique color and iconic bamboo clasp, it’s still fashion-forward despite its classic shape.
2. Roseau Croco Crossbody in Burgundy
The Roseau Croco Crossbody in burgundy offers a touch of French elegance with a modern yet timeless aesthetic. With its premium texture, sleek lines, and jewel lock embellishment, you can strut around town in plain black overalls and still look chic. What’s even better is it comes with an adjustable strap that ensures a comfy and stylish fit for a more put-together look.
3. Small Brioche in Black
Made of soft leather with vertical quilting and topped with a large flap with a delicate sliding chain, the Brioche in black is the only bag you’ll need in the new normal and beyond. While it's still a structured bag, it offers a certain softness that's both sensual and reassuring. Its small size is perfect for carrying around your essentials, too—whether you’re running for quick errands or catching up with friends!
4. Small Brioche in Red
If you fancy a bolder purse that can add a pop of color to your look, you'll love the red Brioche handbag. It makes for a stylish statement piece and takes even the simplest outfit to the next level. Its vertical quilting and minimalist design exude the Parisian spirit.
5. Small Mailbox in Taupe
For the working girl who wants to emulate the modern French women, a carry-all bag like the Mailbox in taupe is a must-have. You can have your essentials around and squeeze in a handful of work files and other personal items, too! And with a structured handbag like this, you can even switch out your high heels for a pair of white sneakers and still embody sophistication.
