Introducing the Celine Summer 2017 Bag Collection. The brand’s latest collection features the Clasp Bag, that was first seen during the runway show. The Clasp Bags comes in different styles, such as top handle, shoulder bag and cabas. The bags are made available in materials like calfskin, printed fur and crocodile. Celine’s classic bags are still part of the collection which includes the Luggage, Trapeze, Classic Box and Trio Bags. This season, the brand introduces new colors like Cloud, Kohl, Cactus, Bubble and Inky Blue.
Tarallucci e Vino is a casual Italian eatery located in NYC’s East Village. It truly is the perfect spot for a breakfast meeting, and we were able to enjoy our breakfast outside on a gorgeous, sunny spring day. A casual eatery like Tarallucci e Vino is perfect for an extended date, and we enjoyed the relaxed, no-rush atmosphere. I can see myself eating lunch there al fresco this summer with my besties, or even swinging by alone to relax inside with a (seriously delicious) almond milk latte.
Rarely do I think handbags are discontinued too quickly. For most brands, debuting a consumer-friendly bag is a process that doesn’t pay off immediately, but instead, over the course of season as interest picks up among people who may not pay close attention to seasonal launches or who need some time for a bag to grow on them. Turning over a line for the Next Best Thing too quickly is risky for continuity in the minds of shoppers, and it can also cut off a design before it reaches its full potential, so brands are usually pretty conservative about putting bags on the proverbial chopping block, and by the time they get there, I usually agree it’s time for them to go. In recent years, there’s been one big exception: the Céline All Soft Bag.
The Céline All Soft made its debut in Resort 2013, long before the current trends for hobos, big bags and minimalism that it so perfectly embodies. It disappeared from store shelves a few years later, and although I was sad to hear of its demise at the time, I eventually forgot all about it—after all, there are bags coming at me left and right literally every day. I was reminded of my love for the All Soft, though, at a Kentucky Derby party a few weeks back. A well-dressed woman walked past me carrying one, and in the moment before my brain was able to make the connection to what it was, my only thought was, “Wow, that’s a really perfect bag.” It was when it debuted, and it still is now.
Very few brands are truly forward-thinking enough to risk being ahead of their time, but Céline is one of them, and the All Soft was ahead of its time by several years. In retrospect, the design is so finely tuned to everything that’s going on in accessories right now, and it’s functional on top of it: easily shoulder-carried, roomy, colorblocked into logical panels to give the exceedingly simple shape a note of modernity. There’s no hardware or gimmicks, just a really solid, chic design. The All Soft never quite took off in 2013, but in 2017, I can imagine seeing it constantly, if only there were still new ones to be had.
Maddeningly, Celine tends not to show many of its bags on the runway. We get a little glimpse here and there of where Phoebe Philo’s brilliance is headed for the season, but mostly her fans are left waiting for spy pictures to surface to get a better idea of where our money will be headed in the coming months. It’s all in the painted edges, you guys. Otherwise, this might be just a boring (but impeccable) shoulder bag that I would surely notice but might not necessarily consider buying. The neon edges give the bag a subtle but very important step toward modernism, and that’s when Philo’s at her wearable best. The rest of the bags are equally elegant, and I’ll have you note that several of them are hobos – they’re coming back, I swear.
In chic, minimalist silhouettes crafted from only the finest materials, Céline handbags remain the accessories of choice for many fashion insiders. From the animated Luggage Tote to the sleek and structured Trapeze Bag, Phoebe Philo’s designs have transformed the French brand into a virtuoso of quiet luxury and a worldwide designer favorite. Treat yourself to the best in understated elegance when you explore our collection of coveted Céline handbags.
Céline’s particular mix of high function and simple fashion make it a great choice for bags, but the spare aesthetic of many of the leather goods turned out during Phoebe Philo’s tenure at the brand makes it particularly appropriate for small leather goods, or SLGs, as members at our PurseForum call them. Along with dozens of new bags we covered last week, the brand just released its Winter 2017 lookbook showcasing over 50 wallets, card cases and beyond.
Céline categorizes many of its small shoulder bags as accessories instead of bags, so even if you don’t need one of Céline’s excellent wallets, you might find yourself enticed by a mini crossbody or clutch. Really, though, the wallets are worth a look: they’re carefully designed, uncluttered and super useful.
Fashion week is always so exciting because of all the new designs we get to see from all of our favorite designers. The second I laid my eyes on this Céline Phantom Luggage from their 2017 Spring collection I instantly fell in love. Those diamond shaped cut outs really make the bag stand out, and I really love how much of a statement piece this bag is. Fingers crossed a good replica manufacturer reproduces this bag!
This Celine Mini Tie tote is made from black crisped calfskin with a black soft suede lining. Details include rolled, knotted top handles, a cut-out flap, and adjustable slide tab closure. The interior features two open pockets and one zippered pocket. This versatile design can be carried with the sides open or tucked in.
Celine’s simple, sophisticated Parisian design has made it one of the most desired brands today. Beginning as a Paris-based children’s custom shoe shop, it is now led by the talented Phoebe Philo. Celine’s famous Trapeze and Phantom bags, structured cross body bags and vintage accessories can all be found at Portero.
