Swing Paris from your arm

Fenwick 2

Photographer: Caroline Leeming

You will be familiar with the Longchamp Pliage (there is barely an arm in Paris not adorned with the leather-handled nylon tote in every conceivable colour and size) so let us introduce you to its new sophisticated sister, Le Pliage Heritage. In elegant leather, its just as effortlessly stylish, as well as practical, if a little more worldly and luxurious. Our pick is the carmine red, but equally irrisistible is the black, bilberry, cream and camel.
