However, fear not, it’s affordability in no way undermines the fact that it’s a stylish, statement bag.
In fact, what sets the Longchamp Le Pliage apart from other bags on the list is its origami-like folding style (“Le Pliage” means “folding” in French), which makes it easy to pack down when not in use. The bag is also made of the super durable and lightweight nylon, making it a breeze to carry over the shoulder. Choose from a wide array of colors incl. classic black and blue.
