May KENDALL AND THE LONGCHAMP FAMILY CELEBRATE THE OPENING OF LONGCHAMP FIFTH AVENUE, NEW YORK CITY
On the evening of May 3rd, Longchamp’s President Philippe Cassegrain, Global CEO Jean Cassegrain, Artistic Director Sophie Delafontaine, and Vice President & Managing Director of Retail in the U.S. Olivier Cassegrain celebrated the opening of Longchamp Fifth Avenue with special co-host and newly announced campaign face, Kendall Jenner.
Longchamp Fifth Avenue, now the brand’s largest U.S. store adjacent to St. Patrick’s Cathedral was transformed for the evening into Café de Longchamp, bringing the Parisian spirit of the brand’s heritage to New York’s historic Fifth Avenue. While inside, guests were enjoying a DJ set performed by Les Twins. Attendees mingled and discovered special surprises on both levels of the flagship – like a French rosé bar – while others queued up at the Le Pliage® Wheel of Fortune for a chance to win Longchamp prizes. Several talented sketch artists captured guests’ portraits, adding to the Parisian experience.

May NEW YORK CITY FLAGSHIP STORE ON MANHATTAN’S FIFTH AVENUE
Longchamp opens its New York City flagship store on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, one of the world’s most famous shopping boulevards, on April 13, 2018. Located at 645 Fifth Avenue in the Olympic Tower, adjacent to Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the 4,000 square-foot, two story space will be the brand’s largest outpost in the United States.
The Olympic Tower is an architectural feat, and a bold statement in and of itself offering an elegant backdrop for Longchamp’s prismatic and cinematic façade. The store’s exterior structure is made of layered rows of protruding metal ribbons in soft shades of white and champagne hues. The metal strips are rigid, but are meant to appear as if they are floating, or swaying in the breeze.
The lighting on the flagship’s façade is also unique and new for Longchamp. The design itself enhances the contrasting visual properties between materials such as pearl-lacquered, matte champagne metal and polished stainless steel. The vibrant facade represents a fresh visual identity, marking the next chapter in Longchamp's storied and innovative history.
May Discover the collection: Longchamp by Shayne Oliver
Taking the concept of travel gear into a new era, the “Longchamp by Shayne Oliver” collection merges Longchamp's history of craftsmanship and French elegance with Oliver’s transformative aesthetic, resulting in a dynamic offering for both men and women. The collection includes leather goods, footwear, ready-to-wear and garment bags, as well as a new iteration of Longchamp’s iconic Le Pliage® tote, reimagined by Oliver. “I really like the idea of working with brands that are masters of their craft,” Oliver shared. “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.”
Throughout the collection, proportions are challenged and silhouettes are altered, disrupting the preconceptions of modern day travel. Travel takes on a new art form, underscored by unwavering freedom and temporal mobility. "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," said Longchamp Artistic Director, Sophie Delafontaine. "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 at select Longchamp stores in the US and on Longchamp.com before rolling out to Longchamp stores internationally in early May 2018.
The products from Shayne Oliver x Longchamp collection will be available online and in-store from May 4, 2018.
