When Longchamp’s ‘Le Pliage Filet’ bag was introduced to the market last year, we were pretty surprised by how cool a knit bag could be, how easily it was to fall in love with it, and how we wanted – wait, make that needed – to own one – stat. Launched at a time when revisiting what our grandmothers used to wear and carry around was all the rage (think vintage outfits and knitted cotton shopping nets), not only does it exude effortless chic without trying too hard, the colour options that ‘Le Pliage Filet’ comes in also helped the bag become popular overnight, so much so that it was practically sold out everywhere!

To add to its popularity, even Emily was seen rocking a bright yellow one in Lemon from Longchamp’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection in episode three, season two of Emily in Paris recently when she was out on a market run with Gabriel for her birthday dinner.

As a follow-up to the successful launch of Longchamp x Filt in Fall/Winter 2021, Longchamp has once again joined forces with France’s oldest manufacturer of net shopping bags from Normandy to create a new size of ‘Le Pliage Filet’ bag – the Crossbody Bag XS – for Spring/Summer 2022 in a variety of new colours like Lemon, Blush and Lagoon on top of classic favourites, Ecru and Black. Considering how fashionistas are opting for smaller bags nowadays, this miniature version of the ‘Le Pliage Filet’ bag in cotton that measures 17cm (L) by 18cm (H) is a brilliant move and release, which we’re sure we’ll be spotting a lot of on trendsetters everywhere very soon!

In contrast to the original ‘Le Pliage Filet’ which works well as a grocery or shopping bag, the XS version is simply ideal and highly practical to carry your daily essentials without you having to rummage through your bag to find something you need urgently, plus it can be used two ways – as a top-handle bag and crossbody bag thanks to its 48cm strap. Just like ‘Le Pliage Filet’, the mini bag comes with the iconic ‘Le Pliage’ handles in Russian leather alongside a flap with snap closure for peace of mind. Tip: If you’re afraid your little items will fall out, put them in a pouch or ziplock bag so that it’s easy to locate what you need, when you need ’em!

Check out Longchamp’s ‘Le Pliage Filet’ Crossbody Bag XS (RM415) here and in store at Pavilion KL, Suria KLCC and The Gardens Mall.
