Longchamp Le Pilage Large Shopper in Navy - £68 at Selfridges
With a lot of people at this time thinking about their upcoming first year at university in September, I thought now would be the perfect time to review this bag which got me through my first year of my degree. I bought my Longchamp Le Pilage last summer when I was in London in the hope it would be useful for university and I couldn't have been more right! This is the large size of the bag and it fits just about anything I'd need to lug around university with me - my (rather massive) laptop, folders, textbooks, lunch etc. It also folds down into a tiny little pouch when you're not using it so it's perfect if you're going to be living away from home and travelling back a lot as you can just fold it up and tuck it in your suitcase for later use.
It is also very hard-wearing. When I bought mine my boyfriend cheekily commented that the straps wouldn't last very long but from all the junk I've carried around in it these past months, I can definitely vouch for its sturdiness! It also has shown barely any signs of wear - as you can see from the photos above it looks virtually brand new! It is also very practical as the inside lining is waterproof - perfect for klutzes like me who accidentally manage to spill coke all over the inside... oops...
Although it is a bit pricier than the average bag at £68 for the large size, I would definitely recommend the investment!
