When you think of classic handbags—the kind of timeless carrier you’d recognize in an instant—Longchamp’s Le Pliage is an obvious candidate. With its signature origami-inspired shape, foldable construction, and button-enclosure flap, the bag has become a widespread favorite. Its versatile design makes the piece (and its many iterations) a great pick for all kinds of lifestyles, outfits, occasions—everything from casual beach days to formal events.

Today, Longchamp continues to innovate the world-famous Le Pliage while maintaining its original aesthetic. For their Spring/Summer 2022 Collection, they've updated the bag once again with a variety of fresh new designs that are perfect for the sunny season.

Our Favorites Pieces From Longchamp's Spring/Summer 2022 Collection

Longchamp’s Spring/Summer 2022 ready-to-wear collection is inspired by the French region of Provence, which is known for its sunny weather and scenic countryside. The line combines rustic fabrics and silhouettes with bright, summery colors to create handbags and crossbody bags that are as laidback as they are elegant.

The centerpiece of the collection is an updated version of the Le Pliage known as the Le Pliage Torchon, which is made primarily from linen fabric. Longchamp teamed up with French linen tea-towel brand Charvet to create the style, which is available in several sizes. Each sports a red-white-and-blue striped design on the white linen. Combined with Le Pliage's signature button flap and leather straps, the colorway and rustic fabric gives the classic a style an ease and lightness that makes it extra effortless.

The easy-going Torchon is a follow-up to Longchamp’s previous collaboration with Filt where they created Le Pliage bags with net-like bodies—you may recall the style made waves after appearing on Netflix’s Emily in Paris. The Le Pliage Filet, as its known, is still present in Longchamp's latest line in a variety of sizes and colors. You can go for the XS when toting around just the essentials or opt for the larger top-handle bag on busier days. Both sizes are great options for sunny days and we're especially loving the blush pink version of the carrier.

For a more unique version of the Le Pliage, check out the Saint Tropez bag. It sports a basket-like body with cowhide trimming in vibrant colors that stand out against the rustic base. Finishing off the piece are gold hardware pieces and a horse embroidered onto the center. You can use the purse as a crossbody bag or handbag—its compact size is a great pick for casual days.

Another reimagining of the classic Le Pliage is the Cuir De Russie, a no-frills bucket bag available in warm, earthy tones including green, brown, and brange. The tube-shaped purse offers a spacious and structured build that gives you plenty of room for your essentials and is easy to pair with both relaxed and dressy looks.

And in case you're looking to explore Longchamp styles aside from the Le Pliage, the French brand also has brand-new iterations of other popular styles like the Roseau. On our wish lists is the understated Essential Toile Bucket Bag. Like the Cuir De Russie, it has a structured shape and a mostly no-fuss design that you'll have no problem pairing with pretty much everything.
