When it comes to bags versus shoes, I’m much more of a bag girl. Bags are practical, they’re harder working, while shoes only really do one job. A new bag feels a bit like a new back-to-school pencil case, symbolising potential and possibility. Oh, the places we’ll go!
I’ve been reusing my 10-year-old Hervé Chapelier canvas tote a lot this summer so was interested to see it also got a mention in US Vogue recently.
Along with the Longchamp Le Pliage, it’s a fine example of high quality, enduring design that does a job without making a song and dance about it. It’s a great product on its own but it could also do with a well-chosen collab or two to introduce it to a new audience – well that certainly hasn’t done Longchamp any harm.
And can we talk about the Hervé Chapelierwebsite? I can think of a million ways to bring the site of this made-in-France 90s favourite bang up-to-date with rich content and engaging stories, not to mention better functionality. Call me please, team Chapelier…
