Longchamp Le Pliage Illusion tote in Coral is from Longchamp’s Spring-Summer 2016 collection. Longchamp has revived their famous Le Pliage line with this new illusion tote collection. This bag features a dazzling textured design with a very soft and sophisticated triangular shape weaved that has a 3D effect. It is also blended with white and coral threads to stiffen the illusion.

Although spotting the knock off ones with this new Le Pliage collection is same with the old one, but here’s another round for you to check on your new Le Pliage Illusion Tote.
