Longchamp Le Pliage in Malaysia

One word to describe it.It's everywhere in Malaysia.I have a nagging suspicion that some may be fake but i have no way of proving this unless i inspect from up close.But then again they're probably all genuine cos for a 'branded' bag, it's affordable. Unless of course if you're in Malaysia. For some reason the prices here are sky high, almost doubling the price in France. So maybe some of them are fake. Okay I'm just contradicting myself.

Do you know how much an original Longchamp Le Pliage costs in Malaysia? It costs RM530 for a long handle small shopper and RM630 for the medium long handle.

The price in France is the cheapest. The price in many European nations is around RM 300 plus. While the prices in the USA is cheaper than in Malaysia but more expensive than in Europe.

Whatever it is, I've decided to join the Le Pliage club albeit many years late.And it's only because my lovely friend, Tahirah got her equally lovely sister in law to get it for me from UK!I try my best to buy original bags as long as i can afford it.

Yeah.. i initially had all kinds of problems choosing the colour. Graphite or Red or Navy or Grape?

Anyhow the whole point in writing this post is that the same friend who helped me get it has one extra Longchamp Le Pliage Long Handle in Graphite and she's keen on selling it for nearly the original UK price. It's a great offer for those who like Longchamp but hate the Malaysian prices, plus it's brand new and original.

I hastily took some pictures with my I-Phone just in case anyone wants to have a look.

If anyone is interested in this bag, do leave a comment with your e-mail so i can tell you the price and how to contact my friend.

Can you guess which colour i got in the end?

In Singapore, you can get it somewhere around SGD200. Some more now, there's "Great Singapore Sales". it would be a lot more cheaper.

The exchange rate had flung up that high..?? o.O oops~ haven't been concentrating to the exchange rate for quite some time edy... lolx~ I heard from my friend that she bought it at SGD18X.XX during the GSS and plus she's get extra 10% discount.

But I think, most of the product are much more cheaper in UK.

About Le Pliage, I'm not so sure.. If I happen to see there is a sales for it, I'll check the price for you. LOLx~
