At the colorful table of André Saraiva and Sarah Andelman for Longchamp
It might be the coolest and most fun collaboration of the season: graffiti artist André Saraiva recreates Longchamp’s iconic Le Pliage with his signature character Mr. A, who appears on the bags with his broad smile and charming wink. Together with the Maison’s artistic director, Sophie Delafontaine, they redesigned the iconic accessory in recycled nylon in four sizes: travel kit, mini bag, shopping bag and travel bag (this model is also available in leather). To celebrate the launch of this colorful capsule collection, on Wednesday night André and Sophie gathered their friends for an intimate dinner, orchestrated by Sarah Andelman (Just An Idea) and star chef Cyril Lignac, in the artist’s studio in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. The highlight of the evening – the surprise concert of La Femme, who enchanted Sofia Roe, Pedro Winter, Charlotte Chesnais, Gildas Loaëc and Camille Bidault-Waddington with their romantic ballads as well as the hits of French chanson.
