For Spring 2013, Longchamp’s star bag, the Gatsby, plays with this season’s sporty trend, becoming the Gatsby Sport. Looser and roomier than the Gatsby, the Gatsby Sport is a modern take on the covetable satchel shape in vibrant spring hues.

Made from supple calf-skin, the bag holds on to Gatsby’s signature square lock, which closes the wide front-flap complete with two buckle-down straps. Ever practical, the Gatsby Sport comes in two sizes; the larger size features a double shoulder strap while the smaller size boasts an adjustable cross-body strap and both are big enough to be an excellent day bag. Available in three neutral shades, black, taupe and honey, our favourite colour of the collection is easily the sunshine yellow.

Sling it over your shoulder or across your body for the ultimate boost to your daytime wardrobe. It’s chic, it’s preppy, it’s super practical and if you don’t believe us, just take a look at Jessica Alba.
