Partying with Longchamp

The global CEO of Longchamp Jean Cassegrain was in India to visit the recently launched first boutique of the French luxury brand Longchamp, known for its excellent quality of travel bags. It’s a luxe label that the Indian luxury connoisseurs and friends of the brand had been waiting for long.

And so when Cassegrain visited, a party was in order for Delhi's glitterati who attended the cocktails dressed in their prettiest branded finery. It was hosted by Radha Kapoor, Founder and Director, DOIT Retail Brands and Founder and Executive Director of the Indian School of Design and Innovation (ISDI) who has brought the brand to India. The young and beautiful Radha Kapoor made sure that Delhi's whose who attended the party. Reflective of Longchamp’s distinctive Parisian charm and elegance, mall-goers and guests also enjoyed viewing an installation housing its signature and coveted leather bags at the mall’s central atrium.

Recent years have seen Longchamp grow its global market share and accelerate its program of store openings. This latest store is especially essential in bringing Longchamp to the much sought after Indian market, which is rapidly gaining significance in the world of international luxury and fashion. 

“We are sure that the brand will resonate well with Indian customer, and it will find a welcoming audience. We have created a sophisticated shopping experience, which we believe will be appreciated by everyone visiting the DLF Emporio Mall,  said Longchamp CEO, and grandson of the House’s founder, Jean Cassegrain.
