?I was very touched to be invited to collaborate with Longchamp. It is a brand which I greatly admire, because it represents French savoir-faire throughout the world,? says Charles Anastase

?I love classic things, things that are made using traditional know-how, yet at the same time Longchamp has engaged in collaborations with contemporary artists like Tracey Emin. There is also the fact that I have always dreamed of transforming a Longchamp bag. It’s an obsession that dates back quite a few years. In fact, the accessories in my first fashion show in Paris in 2004 were a direct homage to Longchamp. That show was sponsored by ANDAM, which is another reason why I am delighted to be part of this collaboration,? the French designer added.
