By Butterboom Writers  /  October 30, 2014

In line with Longchamp’s iconic Le Pliage 20th anniversary, the French brand has collaborated with artist Sarah Morris to design a special limited-edition collection. The result is a super-colourful capsule that fully represents Morris’ vision of the bag: vibrant and fun. Morris is known for her artistic usage of colours and captures used to capture particular moments of urban structures.

There are three designs to the Longchamp x Sarah Morris collection:

LongChamp X Sarah Morris-01-ButterboomLe Pliage Édition Limitée, HK$26,200
Inspired by her painting from the Rio series, this colourful version is in a square shape instead of its usual triangular shape. Made out of a smooth calfskin, there are only 125 pieces of this bag that features a colour-blocking design. All bags are signed by the artist.

LongChamp X Sarah Morris-02-Butterboom

Le Pliage Eclipse, HK$1,900
Taking an extract from her painting Total Annual Solar Eclipse, Morris created this white version with two 3D reinterpretations of the art piece. The bag is available in two sizes: A smaller version with a long handle and a bigger sized on with a short handle.

 LongChamp X Sarah Morris-03-Butterboom

Le Pliage Sarah Morris Palette, HK$1,000
