LONGCHAMP FALL 2021 RTW COLLECTION
The Fall show was held in Paris’ Battesti riding hall, the perfect setting for the equestrian-inspired collection.
March 22, 2021
For the Longchamp Fall 2021 RTW collection, Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine drew inspiration from the iconic Longchamp racehorse logo and the work of the French interior designer Pierre Paulin, whose vision revolutionized Parisian apartments in the second half of the 20th century.
Drawn by Turenne Chevallereau, the galloping Longchamp racehorse is the enduring expression of the label’s dynamism and art de vivre. It was this equestrian connection which influenced the choice of location for the show: Paris’ renowned Battesti riding hall, whose imposing glass and iron roof was engineered by Gustave Eiffel.
The show was opened by Mica Arganaraz in a black safari jacket belted over a red skinny-rib and the shortest of white shorts, worn with black rain boots out of which peeped long red socks. This first silhouette embraces the sensual and enveloping quality of this Fall/Winter 2021 collection.
Go backstage at the Battesti riding Hall and witness a mastery of traditional French style as it unfolds.
