Celine‘s own brand of covetable minimalism is as sharp as a pencil and as clean as a new coat of paint. But even beyond that much desired aesthetic, the fashion house’s handbags stand out for their high quality. They look and feel sturdy; functional; roomy. They’re the arm candy that’s smart as well as pretty.
Celine’s spring 2012 handbag collection continues to pay recognition to the success of the ‘Luggage’ tote: a style that’s become a fixture on the arm of the fashion scene. Spring’s new addition is the Luggage Mini in python: with snakeskin of jungle green or camel replacing canvas on the tote’s body. For those not game to dabble in reptile, the Luggage Mini in cream canvas or smooth navy calf are the more classic options.
Elsewhere in Celine’s spring 2012 handbag offering are colour-blocked versions of the ‘Bi-Cabas’ tote that are streamlined, simple, effortlessly clean. A patchwork bag that looks more like a soft suede colour trend chart doesn’t quite hit the same high note of functional minimalism… but between the boxy clutches, leather draw-string pouch bags, and ever-popular Luggage Minis, there are plenty of investment pieces that would inject effortless cool into any curated wardrobe.
