I admit i wore some when i went the swimming pool or sport lesson when i was younger... But now...
First of all I don't like the design of it... reminds me of "granma's bag"
Second , the bag became very popular in high school , and some of the owner tend to be sooo snobby and feel sooo special because they have a black/brown Longchamp le Pliage.
I admit , the texture and shape of the bag is very practical and handy , but i would take the biggest size as handluggage in airports , And NOT as an everyday bag...
Do you have arguments to prove me wrong ?
I like the leather Longchamps in other collection though
i think every style bag serves its purpose. i own a few pliages and use them for the convenience of them (travel, foldability, easy to keep clean, inexpensive etc). theyre great for travel or when i do things that i wouldnt want to get my nicer handbags dirty (for example, i like to use my white one when i go mini golfing in the summer) so i understand why some women like them and use them everyday.
I like them; a duffle-style is good for putting my Hermes or other expensive bag inside to put it on the dirty conveyor belt of the xray at the airport. Then I can fold it up again and put it it in the handbag or my carryon.
I don't mind the stylres. either.
I use mine in bad rainy weather because I don't care if it gets wet or dirty.
Thank goodness I am not the only one. I don't have a problem necessarily with the all leather, though I don't have any of those, but the others? Ugh! I bought one to use whlie traveling and I hate it...it's the backpack/fold-up one. It's SO uncomfortable and not practical - only one little pocket at the very top that does not even close, so it's useless to me.
I think it's annoying too, no offense to those who like it. It just seems so old style, I remember these when I was little, there were really good. But it's just annoying and seems like a style stuck in time. It's not even comfortable over the shoulder, and ud have to carry it by handles. I remember when my mom had it when I was young...the handles ripped off the fabric after a year.
I have a large red tote that I think is quite pretty, but I don't use it as an everyday handbag. I use it the way I think it was meant to be used-folded up and packed in my luggage until the return trip home when I've done some shopping and can't fit everything back into my suitcase.
i agree about the shoulder comment. The straps are too long (i have the shopper) to hold whats in it, so it keeps on falling off. I use it for a school bag in uni and walking around campus with all the books and laptop makes it sooo difficult! And everyone has one at my school
I must admit I quite like the shape of Le Pliage - I bought one at the airport in brown/black for my holiday in NYC as I didn't want to bring a designer bag. I now use it for grocery shopping, which it is perfect for. As a handbag it is quite hard to get in and out of, and the handles seriously hurt my shoulders. I did see an all leather version of le pliage at woodbury commons outlet and was very tempted to buy it as I do like the shape.
