Fabulous or fearsome? Gorgeous or gruesome? The answer, surely, is both. One thing’s certain: Le Pliage® Madballs, Jeremy Scott’s latest limited edition of Longchamp’s iconic foldable travel bag, is set to start a style debate.
Drawing on his encyclopaedic knowledge of pop culture, the American designer took inspiration from Madballs, the bouncy rubber balls with horrendous faces that became a playground craze in the 1980s. Madballs sweaters were a standout at Jeremy Scott’s recent New York fashion show, and now the impish designer has had two of his favourite characters printed onto the canvas of Le Pliage®. Will you dare to carry one?
The Longchamp Le Pliage® Madballs limited edition by Jeremy Scott is on sale exclusively at Colette, Paris, from 1st to 31st May 2014 and in Longchamp stores from 1st June 2014. Better be quick: everyone’s going to be mad about Madballs!
