Pikachu love is real and in helping us recognize it, The Pokemon company has joined hands with Longchamp Paris for a unique backpack collection – available in-game as well as in real life. Created in a special Pikachu theme, the bags are chic, fun, and every bit quirky!
They are available in four exclusive versions, a black and white LGP canvas ( available in the original-sized shoulder bag design, as well as a backpack, crossbody bag, and mini style) in embossed leather ( black, white or red), a numbered limited edition, or black canvas featuring a Pikachu and boast French elegance and Japanese kawaii at best.
Commenting on it, Sophie Delafontaine, Artistic Director at Maison Longchamp said, “Our Le Pliage bag has become a platform where all the different aspects of Longchamp can be expressed and can also take us to unknown places. We hadn’t explored entertainment and gaming before. It’s a very inspiring world, particularly with Pokémon and its iconic mascot, Pikachu. Our two worlds, real and virtual, blend perfectly in this collaboration.”
Pokemon Go players can get their hands on the in-game versions in an exclusive event taking place from 2 October – 17 November 2020. For those wanting the bags for real, the Longchamp x Pokémon backpack collection will launch on 13 October 2020 at all Longchamp boutiques worldwide. Fancy your very own Pikachu bag?
