So what do the Longchamp x K.Jacques sandals look like? They fuse the design of the celebrated flat sandals with the codes of the iconic Le Pliage. Crafted from cowhide leather, they feature a wide ankle strap, which is rounded like the flap of Le Pliage and embellished with its signature press-stud. In selected boutiques, the sandals can be personalized with their owner’s initials, making them truly unique. The color palette, meanwhile, evokes that of Longchamp’s Spring-Summer 2024 collection.

“Like Le Pliage, K.Jacques sandals speak to every generation,” says Longchamp Creative Director Sophie Delafontaine. “With this collaboration, we are bringing together Paris and Saint-Tropez, and adding a touch of Parisian chic to this simple summer essential.”

“With a pair of K.Jacques sandals, you are buying a little piece of Saint-Tropez,” says Bernard Keklikian, CEO of the artisan shoemaker, which was founded 90 years ago. Still based in the legendary fishing village on the French Riviera, K.Jacques was the perfect candidate for a collaboration with Longchamp. “For a start, we have both been awarded Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) status,” continues Bernard Keklikian. “Although we operate on different scales, we share the same ethos and the same commitment to quality, and we are both still family businesses.”

Longchamp x K.Jacques sandals are available exclusively in Longchamp points of sale and come in six colors: black, brown, green, strawberry, violet and forest.
