Brand

February 1st, 1948:

Jean Cassegrain creates Longchamp and lays the foundation for a French leather goods adventure. 

He produced the world's first luxury leather-covered pipes, then expanded into small leather goods, such as wallets, passport covers, etc..Longchamp launched its first women handbag in 1971 and became one of France's leading leather goods makers.



Team and Process

Design 

The store has a modern design with the use of light colors. It is aimed to feature products in a strong way by using neutral material combinations.



How to install online?

Despite the fact that idea of managing an assembly online which needs me to be there pysically, during Covid-19 pandemic that the whole world challenging, is a little bit different, however we could successfully manage to finish Longchamp Store assembly in the Hamad Airport with the competence of our local crew and our strong communication.



To execute a project from beginning to the end and to command the whole process to perfection, brings us the absolute succession. For this reason it was crucial for us to execute the assembly process from remote in an effective way, which was the most important step.



As we Arcoglobal in a period like this, the primary objective was the sustainability of the service in the same quality level. We could become successful in this by making countless video conferences in addition to our normal mail and phone calls with the brand.
