GUESS was established in 1981 by the Marciano brothers, who left the south of France in pursuit of the American dream. Inspired by a European influence, the Marcianos put their innovative touch on the apparel industry, redefining denim. One of their initial designs was a stonewashed, slim-fitting jean, the 3-zip Marilyn. Bloomingdale's was the first department store to welcome the brand by ordering two dozen pairs of jeans. They disappeared from the shelves in just hours. This was the beginning of a long success story.
Today GUESS is a global lifestyle brand with a full range of apparel and accessories, 19 licensing partners and 1,210 stores in over 80 countries.
Dress to impress with the latest styles in jeans, denim, tops, shirts, watches, shoes, jewelry, handbags & more.

Longchamp was founded by Jean Cassegrain in 1948, and the company employed individual craftsmen dispersed throughout the Loire valley countryside to create leather coverings for pipes and other products geared toward smokers.
By 1955, it had expanded to include small leather goods, opening its first factory in Segré. By the 1970s, Longchamp opened its first boutiques in Hong Kong and Japan, and became known for its lightweight travel goods.
In 1980, the founder's son and current company president, Philippe Cassegrain took the helm and began expanding its retail and factory locations into Belgium and Germany. The company also began producing clothing, scarves, and other fashion accessories.
In 1993, Longchamp introduced its "Le Pliage" line, a collection of foldable travel bags made of vinyl and leather trim. Its popularity has allowed the Longchamp brand to penetrate new markets abroad, including the United States.
Today, in addition to its heritage as a leather goods firm, Longchamp has cultivated a devoted following and brand that is now known for its designs. Venturing into partnerships with notable designers, artists and celebrities has seen the likes of Thomas Heatherwick design Longchamp's SoHo boutique, and Tracey Emin and model Kate Moss create special collections. Moss has also appeared in a number of Longchamp advertising campaigns.
Longchamp has handbags that come in a whole range of sizes, in different designs and that can be carried in an equally wide variety of ways. There are also briefcases, diaries, luggage, travelcases or suitcases. Accessories include gloves, belts, scarves, umbrellas and even jewelry. Longchamp's small leathergoods offer a wide range of articles: wallets, cardholders, purses, check holders, cigar cases and telephone cases.
