Kate Moss's Vintage Bags Inspire Her Fall Longchamp Collection

When Kate Moss needed inspiration for her second collection of handbags for Longchamp, she looked no further than her own closet. “I had a couple of vintage bags from the ’70s that I picked up in second-hand shops in Florence and Marrakech,” the supermodel-turned-designer says in a release. “One of them had a patchwork design. I showed it to Sophie [Delafontaine, Longchamp's artistic director], and found out that at exactly the same time, Longchamp had been working with patchwork and lambskin.” Now, Moss is bringing back her unique vintage find in her much-anticipated fall collection for the French brand. And while the new deep hues are a departure from the soft neutrals of her first collection, we love the exotic jewel-tone patchwork and hippie-chic vibe of these new ads and bags.
