Following the high-powered collab between Supreme and luggage experts, Rimowa comes news of yet another accomplished streetwear mind tapping into the contemporary accessories market. Longchamp by Shayne Oliver sees the eclectic designer apply his own avant-garde twists to travel goods, in a sense transforming functional carryall items into eye-catching high-fashion articles.

Oliver integrates Longchamp’s history of quality craftsmanship and French elegance with his own transformative language — applying artistic sensibilities to a comprehensive range of leather goods, footwear, ready-to-wear items and garment bags. Arguably, the star of the show is Oliver’s creative rendition of Longchamp’s iconic Le Pliage® tote.

When asked to comment on the project, Shayne Oliver had the following to say:

“I really like the idea of working with brands that are masters of their craft.”

“Longchamp has a prestigious history of providing luxury travel essentials with expert craftsmanship. It made total sense to work with them on my first all accessories project.”

Longchamp artistic director, Sophie Delafontaine added:

“While this is not the first collaboration for Longchamp or Shayne Oliver, it was a particularly energizing experience to work with Shayne in order to offer an unexpected collection to our customers.”

“Designing Longchamp product through Shayne’s lens was an exciting challenge that allowed us to create product that is truly original.”

Longchamp by Shayne Oliver will launch on May 4 online and at select Longchamp stores throughout the U.S., with a wider release through the label’s international carriers later in the month.

In case you missed it, Supreme & Lacoste strike back with a new Spring 2018 collection.
