Designer Handbag News: Kate Moss for Longchamp

The world’s most popular supermodel Kate Moss isn’t done with leaving her mark in the fashion world. She recently introduced her collection for Topshop, now she has helped redesign the Legend handbag for French fashion house Longchamp.

Jo Walker from Longchamp told Vogue “She (Moss) fell in love with it," Walker continued “She immediately suggested a red lining to contrast with the black leather and the end result is the Legend."

Kate isn’t new to Longchamp. For the last few seasons the supermodel has appeared in their advertisements, now she has helped add the finishing touches to Longchamp’s Legend purse. The bag was created by artistic director Sophie de la Fontaine who has always loved the shape of the original seventies style doctor’s bag and therefore was inspired to recreate this everyday essential.
