Longchamp x Emotionally Unavailable Capsule Collection

What happens when Longchamp Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine and Edison Chen had a chance meeting in Shanghai? A collaboration, that’s what! Longchamp has joined forces with Emotionally Unavailble, a contemporary fashion brand by Hong Kong superstar Edison Chen and Kybum Lee.

We’re not trying to do a boxing-inspired collection. We’re talking about heartbreak, deep love and self-strength. These tagline come out because we’re all in this constant struggle of relationships and feelings – not only in love, but with our siblings, our parents, our co-workers. It’s this thing everyone goes through ~ Edison Chen ~

Longchamp x Emotionally Unavailable Edison Chen Leather Le Pliage Tote and Accessories Lanyard

Drawing from elements of boxing but at the same time, not a boxing-inspired collection, the Capsule comprises athleisure pieces such as unisex hoodies, tees, boxing gloves, black satin shorts and a matching kimono with a white tie belt, sweatshirts, drawstring pants in lambskin, as well as leather goods, particularly the iconic Le Pliage ® in the form of  convertible travel bags that morph into a backpack in black lambskin, mini tote with the bleeding heart allover print that comes with a removable shoulder strap as well as a card holder cum coin purse cum key ring on a lanyard., and a miniature crossbody bag with an allover heart and racehorse print.

Also part of the collection is the “Been a CHAMP” design, featuring 4 variations of the Le Pliage ® in nylon including a small tote, shoulder bag, mini backpack, and a belt bag.

For me, in a collaboration, what is very important is to keep both identities. I think what is very successful in this collaboration, and in the products we made together, is that you can feel the authenticity and the know-how of Longchamp, and you can feel the energy and power of Emotionally Unavailable ~ Sophie Delafontaine ~

The collection is now available at all Longchamp boutiques globally, and on the official website.
