I don't mean to offend anyone, and you can only imagine the restraint I practiced while writing this article, but my friend Lester said it best: It's the elite bag of the masses.
Personally, after writing this article, I started wanting a Longchamp of my own. The history and the skillz put into every piece calls to me. With every bag, you already have a piece of fashion history in your possession. And admittedly, the Le Pliage has a classic look that can go from casual to dressed up. What irks me though is having to bump into five other people who have the same bag. That thought doesn't appeal to me. If I am going to buy a 15,000-peso bag, I would at least make sure that not every Ate and Tita in market places will have a replica of my bag.
Besides, that's P5,000 short of a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. Hey, I'm just keepin' my eye on the prize ;)
Any of you girls there have a Le Pliage? Thoughts?
