The great escape

Longchamp lets your national pride flag fly as you set out to see the world

The insides of your passport may be fashioned with stamps from all corners of the world, from Phnom Penh to Paris to Peru, but the outer sleeve of that document will always be that happy shade of red, and in gold lettering, "Republic of Singapore".

Matching that patrotic branding is Longchamp's latest: The limited edition Roseau 1948 bag. Its twist on the timeless design introduces a jacquard canvas edit, trimmed with navy cowhide leather — from which it got the name Roseau 1948. Iconic Longchamp features, the galloping horse, horseshoe and smoking pipes are encased in a vintage insignia.

Should there be another concrete jungle you pine for (we won't tell), the Roseau 1948 bag is available with labels of 23 other locales. As each version is only sold in the specific locations, pop by the Longchamp store in the following cities when you travel:

  1. Amsterdam
