Remember my past musing about whether I should get a Longchamp Les Pliages tote bag? I should have looked in my closet! Well no, I did not find a Longchamp Le Pliage magically appearing in there, I found something just as good if not better.
My old Hervé Chapelier 925N tote!
Hervé Chapelier is a French brand that specializes in strong colourful nylon bags. Like Longchamp, the bags can be folded although not into a pocket size but they are similarly lightweight, hardy, longwearing and great for travel.
Its also interesting that Hervé Chapelier bags don’t seem to be as popular as Longchamp. Maybe that’s why it appeals to me. I recently shook the dust off my old Hervé Chapelier 925N tote and fell in love all over again.
