Get your own personalised designer handbag


Longchamp has always been a favourite brand of mine. Its Le Pliage Nylon range in particular.  Not only are the bags classic and sleek and come in a variety of beautiful colours but they’re also incredibly practical.

Available in 6 sizes, from overnight bags down to the carrier of your bare essentials, you’re covered for any occasion, and they’re light and fold down to the size of a notebook.  Perfect if you’re on holiday or a shopping spree, and expect the need for an extra bag on your way back. You know it happens.

I have a large tote bag which I use for overnight stays and as hand luggage when flying, and a medium tote which serves as a great bag if I’m travelling into London and need to carry more than the basics such as an umbrella, spare flats, my kindle etc….

As I said, the range comes in a variety of colours BUT what is really exciting is that Longchamp also lets you go further and design your bag. Yup, it lets you create a personalised designer handbag.  This means that you can do far more than pick a main colour; you can also determine the other colours of the bag, strap length and even branding, if you wish.

This is my very own personalised designer handbag that I created for myself:

design your own handbag
I selected:

Bag size 3 (so that it will hold a book/shoes as well as all of my usual day-to-day musts)

Long handles (so I can wear it on my shoulder)

Main colour: Black

Stripe colour: Pearl

branded handbagHardware (zip and button colour): Golden

Branding: My initials embossed



I must warn you that there will be a huge temptation to go for bright colours but try to avoid this.  While it will look ‘fun’ when it first arrives, it’ll likely clash with most of your things and be relegated to a beach bag for the remainder of its days.

That’s why I went for classic colours.  By doing so, I have created a bag which works in any season and matches most of my wardrobe.

  1. What a great idea! Can’t wait to design my own bag. Yours looks so stylish….might investigate a navy combo for Spring

    1. Great idea Moira. Navy will go really well with a lot of this season’s colours such as nudes and orange. x
