Designer Handbag News: Kate Moss for Longchamp
The worldâ€™s most popular supermodel Kate Moss isnâ€™t done with leaving her mark in the fashion world. She recently introduced her collection for Topshop, now she has helped redesign the Legend handbag for French fashion house Longchamp.
Jo Walker from Longchamp told Vogue â€œShe (Moss) fell in love with it,” Walker continued â€œShe immediately suggested a red lining to contrast with the black leather and the end result is the Legend.”
Kate isnâ€™t new to Longchamp. For the last few seasons the supermodel has appeared in their advertisements, now she has helped add the finishing touches to Longchampâ€™s Legend purse. The bag was created by artistic director Sophie de la Fontaine who has always loved the shape of the original seventies style doctorâ€™s bag and therefore was inspired to recreate this everyday essential.
