French luxury brand Longchamp has a history of collaborating with artists to add new, creative spins to their collections. And in this time round, the brand has partnered with French art critic and cartoonist Clo’e Floirat.

Clo’e adds her signature whimsical aesthetics through illustrative prints of dogs and their walkers to pieces in the Longchamp stable. The Clo’e Floirat collection consists of items like keyrings, silk scarves, and dog leashes and collars.

Our favourite? Her designs on the classic Longchamp Le Pliage bag that the brand is most known for. In case we haven’t mention, this collection is limited edition; so if you’re a collector of all the different design iterations of the Le Pliage, we suggest you head to the stores quick. Here are some of the items you can expect to find:

The collection drops on Oct 30 at their Paragon and Marina Bay Sands stores, or else you have to wait till the global launch date on Nov 6 to get them at all other stores.

And here’s another reason to head to Paragon on the 30th. In celebration of their 70th anniversary, there will be a two-day pop-up event. Recreating a French-style cafe. We hear that there will be complimentary croissant and coffee served at the pop up, Café de Longchamp (yes you read that right, no spend required!).
