GUIDE TO CELINE: CLASSIC TIMELESS BAGS

Posted on


The Celine style is instantly recognizable. Minimalist and timeless, Celine's handbags boast expert craftsmanship and distinct designs that feature clean and elegant lines. They are designed with the wearer in mind, with elements of timelessness and comfort for ease of wear.

 

Understated luxury is the hallmark of all Celine's bags; their styles are all simple, without any prominent logos, so that the bags can speak for themselves.

Celine's current collection of "classics" includes the esteemed Luggage Tote, Classic Box, Belt Bag, Trotteur, and Cabas Tote. Read on to find out more about these classic bags from Celine.

 

Luggage Tote

The Celine Luggage Tote requires no introduction. This highly sought-after classic is considered a versatile carryall suitable for work and play.

Debuted in 2010 under the direction of Phoebe Philo, the Luggage Tote was not immediately popular but soon began flying off every shelf after celebrities like the Olsen twins were spotted carrying it. It was not long after that the Luggage Tote became widely regarded as a covetable "It" bag and amassed long waitlists for fans to acquire one.

The Luggage Tote features distinctive winged sides and a robust, structured design built to stand the test of time. Available in three sizes (Nano, Micro and Mini) and a wide array of colours and material combinations from drummed and smooth calfskin to nubuck, croc-embossed, and python leather, there's a Luggage Tote to suit every individual's taste.

The Mini is the most popular choice among the three sizes for its spacious interior.

The Luggage Tote also comes in a Phantom edition, a larger and broader version of the Celine Mini Luggage tote. The Luggage Phantom Tote sports a more enormous signature wingspan, an open-top, braided tassels and a suede interior. The Phantom comes in medium and large sizes; however, the large has been discontinued and is now extremely rare to find.

Classic Box

The Celine Classic Box Bag is known for its distinct box shape and sophisticated, sleek design. In addition, it features a unique gold metal push tab buckle on the front closure, creating a refined and luxurious look. Even though the bag is minimalistic and classic, this stunning hardware closure elevates the entire aesthetic.

The rigid, rectangular silhouette gives the Classic Box Bag a hard body appearance. Its interior reveals an accordion-like compartment with different slots to help you stay organized. The Celine box bag also features a detachable and adjustable strap which allows you to carry it either as a clutch, a shoulder bag, or a crossbody bag.

The Celine Classic Box Bag is currently available in three sizes, small, teen, and medium.

Belt Bag

First introduced in Celine's Pre-Fall 2014 collection, the Celine Belt Bag is a fashion icon favoured for its ever-so-practical design. A roomy handbag with a single top handle, a front belt closure that can be knotted, and a front flap that tucks behind the belt to be fastened by a hook closure, the Belt bag's winning quality is its large interior which offers plenty of storage.

The Celine Belt Bag comes in four sizes: Pico, Nano, Micro, and Mini.

Trotteur Bag

Fun fact: Did you know that the "Trotteur" translates to "trotting horse" in English?

Debuted in Celine's Fall 2015 collection, the Trotteur is Celine's modern take on the classic '70s saddle bag silhouette, designed with a trendy yet timeless rounded curved shape. The Trotteur features a metal buckle on the front flap, which slides into a chevron leather holder for a touch of understated elegance. Many fans prefer to carry the bag with the flap untucked and the plate unfastened for an unfussy look.

This functional and nifty crossbody bag has plenty of storage in the small, medium, and compact sizes it is available in, perfect for holding your smaller daily essentials.

Trapeze Bag

Celine Trapeze Bag Sizes

One of Celine's most iconic bags, the Trapeze Bag, has recognizable hallmarks, including the signature Luggage Tote wide gussets and the Classic Box Bag-style flap closure. Sporting a structural and simple silhouette, the Trapeze Bag's expandable side wings can be folded inside the bag using snap button closures.

Considered a roomier alternative to the Luggage Tote, the Trapeze Bag is exceptionally spacious, containing one rear zip pocket, a zipper compartment and two card slots. The only downside is that the top handle is placed over the front flap, and some fans may find it difficult to open the bag with one free hand.

Much loved by Celine fans during the Phoebe Philo design era, the Trapeze Bag has unfortunately been discontinued. However, it remains a Celine classic and is very rare to find nowadays.

Like the Luggage tote, the Trapeze comes in a wide assortment of colours and materials like natural, drummed, smooth, and liege calfskin and more exotic leathers like python, crocodile, and suede.

The bag comes in four sizes: Mini, Small, Medium, and Large.
