Founded in 1948 by Jean Cassegrain, the company Longchamp originally specialized in the leather sheathing of pipes. This visionary tobacconist turned ambitious leather worker will extend his activity to the small leather goods in 1955.
You will tell me, but why Longchamp? To this answer, the current CEO gives the following answer: “We are called Cassegrain. Logically, the first symbol to think of is the mills. However, my father had cousins in Orleans who sold bikes and who had already put a mill on them. At the time, we made hand-sewn saddlery, which brought us a little closer to the horse, and fortunately at the end of the Longchamp racetrack, there is a mill. My father made the connection and baptized the Longchamp company. “
Let’s go back to the beginning of the brand. In the 60s and 70s, Longchamp became involved in the creation and launch of travel items made of lambskin and invented the Xtra-bag – a foldable canvas travel bag that would become famous and be much copied. In 1979, the brand’s expansion was confirmed by the opening of a store in the Far East and in Europe.
In 1980, Philippe Cassegrain succeeded his parents and opened a first Boutique in Paris, rue Saint-Honoré. In 1990, the supply of leather products widened to gloves and belts, then to scarves and silk ties in 1992. In 2006, the French brand launched its first ready-to-wear collection that will soon become very popular.
Today, we’re going to focus on the top 10 Longchamp dresses in 2020.
