When was Longchamps founded?

Longchamp is a French luxury brand that was founded in Paris in 1948 by Jean Cassegrain the father of today’s President. The brand is best known for its high-end leather goods, including handbags, luggage, and small leather accessories, but it also offers a range of other luxury products, such as clothing, shoes, and eyewear.

What does the horse logo stand for?

The emblematic horse logo is a symbol of the company’s inception. There is a famous horse race track in Paris called Longchamp or “long field.”

Just next door was an old mill that Monsieur Cassegrain – which means “miller” in French – used to pass in front of every day.

The company soon found its name: it being only a short trot from the miller and onto the race track, the way was fore trod!

Overall, Longchamp eyewear is a great choice for those who value quality, style, and functionality in their eyewear. Whether you are looking for a classic pair of eyeglasses or a modern pair of sunglasses, Longchamp’s collection has something to offer.
