Alexa Chung dropped as face of Replica Longchamp after she endorses other brands

Alexa Chung will be dropped as ambassador for designer handbag label Longchamp outlet due to her association with “countless brands”.

The 33-year-old, who was once a presenter on children’s show T4, has represented the Parisian brand for three years.

She became the darling of designers enraptured by her looks — with many of them comparing her to Sixties icon Jane Birkin — and has contracts with AG Jeans, Marks & Spencer and Mulberry, who named a bag replica after her.

But a senior source at Longchamp replica told the Standard: “Up and down the high street you can see that Alexa has lent her name to countless brands.”

They added: “We’ve swapped. We’re going back to a real model. Authenticity is key and we think it adds more. Having a model seemed to make more sense.”

It is understood that Chung, who has two more seasons to promote under the terms of her contract, will part company with Longchamp outlet in the autumn.

LongchampThe split comes despite her close friendship with the wealthy Cassegrain family, who have owned Longchamp outlet for three generations. She struck up the relationship when she was employed to DJ at the brand’s Regent Street launch party in 2013, which was attended by Mick Jagger. However, senior family figures are now said to think her endorsements of other brands are taking away from the authenticity of Longchamp replica. Chung also has her own eponymous collection out this month.

It was reported this year that the model had been dropped by M&S after launching two “archive” collections for the retailer. This was later denied. A spokeswoman for Chung said: “Alexa and Longchamp have enjoyed seven successful seasons together and mutually agree to move on for AW17. Alexa is focused on the much anticipated launch of her own brand ALEXACHUNG which launches on May 30.”cheap  Longchamp was unavailable for comment.

All the Cool Girls Had One collection:Longchamp replica

LongchampEven after you’ve traded in school uniforms for business-casual ones, given up on getting that trend right, and finally put down that hideous but really, really expensive bag replica, totems of popularity don’t quite lose their power. Years later, they can still carry the weight of fitting in or the fear of standing out; they capture bygone struggles with body image and gender presentation, and symbolize Longchamp bags outlet a growing awareness of race and class.

We talked to a slew of mean girls, nerds, and outcasts, plus the self-described “second or third most popular girl in my high school.” Now they’re artists, writers, actors, and athletes. (Turns out, Judy Blume struggled in middle school, too.) Here, 16 women on the shoes, bags, clothes, and brands Longchamp outlet they loved above all else.

Molly Ringwald, actor and writer:

“By the time I was in high school, I was deemed the most popular teenager in America.

Since I was working so much, I didn’t really pay much attention to the issue of popularity at school. The John Hughes films I made were much closer my middle-school experience. When I was coming-of-age, California blondes were it. I was a freckled, auburn-haired kid, and I definitely didn’t feel bags replica confident in my appearance. In sixth grade, my mother made me a Hawaiian shirt out of fabric I had picked out. It was red and black with little flecks of gold. I loved it and saved it for picture day, when all the kids informed me that wearing red and black on Friday meant you were a whore. I didn’t even know what that meant.”

Mariah Nielson, curator and design historian:

“At 12, I switched from Waldorf to public school. As soon as the sixth grade started, I was acutely aware of the tension between girls and boys, and the competitiveness Longchamp outlet between girls. I quickly understood that boys ‘liked’ girls with big boobs, that wearing tight or revealing clothes got you more attention, and that Keds had to be crisp white. I couldn’t achieve any of these things, as I was flat-chested, wore oversize hand-me-downs, and lived on a dirt road.”

Lisa Lucas, executive director of the National Book Foundation:

“I went to an almost entirely white private school when I was young. Everyone wanted to be Punky Brewster, and meanwhile, I loved her black friend Cherie. There was always Longchamp handbags replica something that people were doing with their hair that I couldn’t do. I was never gonna look like the girls on the cover of The Baby-Sitters Club, but in seventh grade I switched to public school, where I was suddenly Longchamp handbags outlet surrounded by all these beautiful brown and black girls. I remember the ground shifting underneath me. What I had come up believing was hip changed in a minute, and I was in this real hurry to figure out how to do my hair and dress.

Longchamp Replica to ramp up further its presence in UK

LongchampA fiercely independent family company with nearly €600 million in turnover and 70% of production exported. A brand of Longchamp handbags replica and accessories that for years has been the best known brand in France and a very strong bond with UK in terms of taste, style and business model. And yet, until five years ago, Longchamp – founded in Paris in 1948 – had a presence in our country that was still much less pervasive than in other European markets, although it’s profile has risen over the past decades.

“When, in 2011, the Cassegrain family proposed to me that I open an Italian branch and laid out their goals and ambitions, I though that it would be a difficult but not impossible challenge,” said Paola Patrone, country manager for Longchamp in UK. “The seriousness of the project was clear, as was the availability to make key investments right from the start, despite the fact that only five years before we had been in a full-blown economic crisis of consumption. So I accepted and today I think that we are already at a good point with respect to the goals that the founders/owners, and myself as well, want to reach.”
Definitive 2016 financial data aren’t out yet, but in 2015 Longchamp revenue rose 14% to €56 million. There’s likely to be an additional increase for the year just ended, which will bring revenue close to the €600 million mark.

“In 2011, Longchamp was only present in UK in some multi-brand stores with few products besides Longchamp handbags outlet. Today, we have six boutiques in Milan, Florence, Rome, Venice, Genoa and Portofino, all in prestigious locations, alongside luxury brands, and we are in about 100 other high-end locations,” Patrone said. “We have been growing uninterruptedly for five years and in 2016 revenue rose by 8.3%. A this point, UK is one of the major European markets for the brand.”

But our country is also important from a strategic perspective. “The handbags replica and accessories, which will always be Longchamp’s core business, are made in France, where we have six factories. But that’s not the case for the two categories introduced to give the brand more global breadth (it’s currently present in 80 countries). Pret-à-porter, which we show twice a year in Paris during Fashion Week, is all made in UK, and our shoes are 90% made in UK,” she says.

The boutiques are an important way to introduce our brand to foreigners: Italian customers make up about half of business, the rest are tourists from around the world.”

Longchamp’s best-seller is Le Pliage, the foldable nylon bag launched in 1993 and available in leather since 2012.
“Over time, we created Le Pliage bags outlet in every color and size, working with artist like Jeremy Scott,” recalls Patrone. The price (which starts from €80) makes it an excellent way to enter the Longchamp world. But we are perceived as a true luxury brand and with a strong skill in workmanship and the choice of material. It’s no coincidence that the best-sellers in our clothing line are leather jackets and pants. Longchamp also offers Longchamp outlet handbags that can cost thousands of euros depending on the size and material,” she said.

Being able to set the starting price at €80 is one of the advantages of being independent and owned by a very united family. Of not having outside pressure and being forced to drive up margins and revenues. “For the Cassagrain, the important thing is to grow in a healthy way, maintaining intact the price-quality ratio,” she concluded.

Longchamp replica history is about stylish bags and more

Longchamp, the traditional French luxury accessories and clothing brand famous for its nylon Le Pliage Longchamp bags, touched down in Los Angeles early this month to celebrate its decade-long relationship with the eccentric fashion designer Jeremy Scott.

Over the years, Longchamp has let Scott use Le Pliage as a canvas for a number of limited-edition designs inspired by his self-named ready-to-wear collections. The highly collectible bags replica have featured eye-popping graphics including brightly colored piles of pills, 1980s Madballs characters, Zodiac symbols and retro postcard images. A $370 “Greetings from Hollywood” design was released to coincide with the L.A. celebration and anniversary.

Longchamp1Founded by the late Jean Cassegrain in 1948, Longchamp is still a family business 60-plus years later, run by the second and third generations. I sat down with creative director Longchamp outlet Sophie Delafontaine and Chief Executive Jean Cassegrain (the founder’s grandchildren) while they were in town, to learn about the brand’s heritage, including the back story behind their father Philippe Cassegrain’s origami-like Pliage design, which debuted in 1993. Here are the take-aways.

“A lot of young men were smoking pipes at the time, and a lot of Americans were coming through Paris after World War II. At some point, Elvis Presley must have been through Paris and purchased the pipe,” Cassegrain said. “The name of the store was not Longchamp at first. It was a tobacconist, selling cigarettes, cigars, lighters and stuff like that. My grandfather was successful supplying the GIs in Paris, but when they went home he was left with an excess. So to give his pipes an identity, he decided to cover them in leather and stamp them with the Longchamp name, after the racetrack in Bois de Boulogne, since another company was already using the name Cassegrain.” In the 1950s, the company expanded into leather goods, then luggage and eventually Longchamp handbags outlet and ready-to-wear.

More than 30 million Le Pliage Longchamp bags have been sold worldwide, and it takes more than 100 steps to make each one.

A tote that folds flat, Le Pliage (French for “the folding”) comes in a range of sizes and fabrics including leather, nylon and canvas, all accented with a signature leather oval that snaps over the leather handles. On the brand’s website, you can customize your Pliage by choosing colors and monograms.

Longchamp2“Our father was the first person to have the idea to make luggage from nylon. And the first nylon he used was the nylon used by the French army for the floor of their tents. It was khaki-colored,” Cassegrain explains. “It’s not that unique to put crocodile or gold everywhere to make luxury,” he says. “Luxury is something [that is] well-suited to your need.”

Longchamp makes clothing to accessorize its bags outlet, not the other way around.

“I started with six or seven pieces — coats, jackets, very simple,” says Delafontaine. “Season after season, the collection has grown and now we also have shoes. I always start by designing the handbag collection first, which is different from most brands. I like to use leather and play with it. I make jackets that look like cashmere sweaters but are in lambskin so soft and light, you can fold them in your luggage, for example.”

Longchamp Atelier : Witness the making of a Paris Premier replica bag

Striding out from a sun-drenched Parisian café enveloped Longchamp bags outlet in her signature leopard coat, Alexa Chung totes an oxblood version of the Paris Premier bag in Longchamp’s fall 2016 campaign. The house knows full well the charm Chung has on any breathing female. Practically anything she wears, everyone covets — but there’s more to Longchamp’s latest bag addition than meets the eye.

In tandem with Paris Premier’s launch, the French leather goods house is setting up their very first Longchamp Atelier pop-up in Singapore. The open space lets you Longchamp outlet in on the know of the house’s 68 years of leather expertise and the love labour behind the elegantly sturdy structure Longchamp hanbags replica of the Paris Premier. Indeed, turning exquisitely tanned calfskin into a Paris Premier is no easy task: The bag passes through various artisans’ skilled hands of millimetre-accuracy before it’s truly complete.

The £80 folding it longchamp bag outlet that’s conquered the UK in the world

Forget counting cars to pass the time. My teenage daughter and I have invented a new game, which we’ve dubbed Tot Up The Totes.We’re tallying up how many women we see carrying the same handbag. Not just any old longchamp bags replica: the smart, understated nylon ones with the leather handles and trim that seem to be everywhere at the moment.For the uninitiated, it is Le Pliage, from French luxury brand Longchamp. In a recent round-up of ‘It Bags’outlet by a fashion magazine, it was up there with the Fendi Baguette (£1,750) and the Hermes Birkin (from £5,600) – even though it costs no more than £80, and sometimes as little as £48.

Unbelievably, more than 31 million of the cheap longchamp bags replica have now been sold globally – not bad for a family-run business which started out in 1948 selling small leather goods for men.So just how did the Longchamp foldable tote take over the world?Celebrity aficionados clearly love them for their sheer practicality. For the A-lister on the move, no other design manages to cater for all life’s eventualities and yet still look effortlessly elegant.

Meanwhile, for those of us who own only one, the cheap bags sales have proved a welcome riposte to the eye-wateringly expensive Bag published by Laurence King bags of the Noughties, which cost almost as much as a family holiday.

‘Instantly recognisable, this is a designer handbag replica with a very modest price tag,’ says Sue Huey, trend forecaster at Stylus Fashion and co-author of Bag. ‘It is such a popular bag because of its refined simplicity.

‘Whilst its primary material is nylon, its use of leather trim gives it a luxe look and feel. It’s durable and incredibly versatile. And its endless colour range and size options means it’s a style often purchased more than once. It’s a transitional piece that’s functional enough bags oetlet for shopping, yet smart enough for dinner.’

Whereas once she no doubt just threw in a purse, lipstick and diary, these days her favourite carry-all is proving more useful for carting George and Charlotte’s toys about.However, Le Pliage really started to go mainstream during the economic downturn, due to its affordability and discreet branding. Sales will no doubt now be boosted by the new 5p charge for plastic longchamp bags replica, too.

And so there is now a Longchamp Woman ready-to-wear clothing range, a shoe collection and, last year, to mark the 21st anniversary of the nylon original, a luxury leather version – and so it was that the bag that was a refreshing change from pricey designer bags outlet gave birth to the super-expensive Le Pliage Heritage, which starts at £680. Mad Men actress January Jones has been spotted with one.

How things can so quickly come full circle – but still, I defy you not to lust after it.

It’s also worth noting there’s a more affordable leather range called Le Pliage Cuir, with prices starting at £145 for a practical cross-body bag – and all the replica bags in this range still fold up even though they’re entirely made of leather. The nylon original, meanwhile, can now be personalised, meaning you longchamp bags can choose your own colours, as well as handle lengths (some like long, I like short), three types of zips and so on.

I’ll have to put one on my husband’s Christmas present list – and if he doesn’t want to use it, I know someone who will …
