Known for its bestselling Pliage bag, Longchamp, the family-owned French leather goods brand, has introduced its first full footwear collection for fall.
Sophie Delafontaine, artistic director of Longchamp, said the house’s footwear range boasts the same attention to craftsmanship and savoir-faire as its bags, with a crossover of materials and details.
“The shoes are totally complementary to the bags and the ready-to-wear as they are part of the Longchamp woman’s silhouette and we want to continue to expand this product category and concept,” she said, adding that boots in the line use the same leathers as the bag and mimic the shape of the equestrian saddle.
In addition to boots and booties, the women’s range features everything from oxfords to wedge laceups with the house’s LM jumping horse logo discreetly embossed on the heel.
Retail prices for the line range from $285 to $735.
The collection, which features 55 SKUs, will be stocked at the label’s boutiques globally beginning in July.
Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Hausmann also will carry the line beginning this fall, representing the first time the footwear will be available through a retail partner.
The brand first introduced shoes in the fall of 2008.
