Why Longchamp’s Box-Trot is everyone’s new favourite bag

On the lookout for your new go-to handbag? Good news—Longchamp’s new launch will have you spoiled for choice.

Breaking news: The perfect handbag does exist. Introducing: Longchamp’s Box-Trot. Taking its name from the most famous racecourse in Paris, this equestrian-chic bag encapsulates French it-girl style effortlessly.

Drawing inspiration for the bag from the spontaneous lives of bold, independent women, Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine describes the bag as a celebration of joie de vivre.

Structured and compact in shape but timeless in design, it’s the perfect everyday handbag. 

Its adjustable strap is ideal for those constantly on the go, and its sleek, boxy design fits anything and everything. Better yet, it comes in three sizes for every need, each of which is roomy enough to hold your essentials without being so big that it errs on the side of bulky.

The M is fabulous for the long-haul, when you need a roomy compartment for all of your travel must-haves. The S is best for everyday, when you’re in need of a trusty companion that will see you through your daily routine. The XS is for the absolute necessities—keys, wallet, phone and the like—for those days where you need to get going ASAP.

Take your Box-Trot everywhere you go—to work, to date night, or on a stroll—the possibilities are endless. Whether you’re dressing it up for dinner or dressing it down for your day-to-day errands, you’ll look every part the chic, modern woman you’ve always strived to be. 

Each Box-Trot is beautifully constructed from smooth calfskin and is decorated with a stunning medallion featuring the house’s iconic horse and rider. The bag is also available in six colours, including the classic colourways—black, cognac, cypress, orange, and lilac—which feature the medallion in gold, as well the new monochrome candy pink colourway with tone-on-tone hardware. Essentially, there’s a shade for every wardrobe, but our pick is the black Box-Trot—a versatile classic that can be used all year round for all occasions.



We recently took best friends Sherry Amin and Ofiellia Iskandar on a trip to Longchamp’s The Gardens Mall boutique to explore the Box-Trot bag in all its glory. Can you guess which Box-Trot bags they walked out with?
