A few seasons ago, zany LA designer Jeremy Scott injected some scenester cred into Longchamp's preppy "Le Pliage" tote, emblazoning it with a graphic telephone print—one that we still regularly spot dangling from arms around town. And now, High Snobiety informs us that the collabo has been re-ignited, as Scott has designed yet another Longchamp bag to commemorate the 20th anniversary of French charity ANDAM, which supports emerging designers. This time, however, he's decided to go the photographic route, plastering an image of his own mug across the bag (launching October 1). Other contributors to the project are Bless, who created a high-concept bag that can be folded up into bracelet form, and Charles Anastase, whose girlish sketches of kittens and ballet slippers look eerily similar to the ones found on our third grade Trapper Keepers. Something for everyone, then.
