Put together by French designer Hedi Slimane, the new Celine women’s collection weaves whimsical elegance with a touch of English countryside. The bags that go along with it are no exception.
MINI AVA IN TRIOMPHE CANVAS AND CALFSKIN TAN

The box bag format has been released by other brands in the past, but none are more unique than the Strap Box. The closure requires the handle to be passed through a hoop, then fastened by a snap button. The result is a secure and sturdy loop that keeps its content safe while the opening ritual echoes that of unwrapping a gift.

MEDIUM TABOU IN SMOOTH CALFSKIN RICE

In pure Hedi Slimane fashion, the brand-new Tabou line of bags is austere and authoritative. Complementing office and business-casual wear, the Medium Bag is both portable and practical.

CLUTCH ON STRAP IN SMOOTH CALFSKIN TAN

Similar to the Tabou, the Strap Clutch is a shorter version, featuring gentle curves and the same decorative lock. We like this one too!

Construction material is also an area explored by Slimane in this season’s collection. The iconic Teen Triomphe Bag received a textile makeover, along with a newly minted strappy bucket, the Seau Marin.

MINI AVA IN TRIOMPHE CANVAS AND CALFSKIN TAN

Inspired by a vintage design from the Celine archives, the modern Ava bag is reprised in two sizes and is available in a selection of styles. Our favorite is the Mini Ava in Triomphe Canvas and Calfskin, featuring a gold metal zip detail and an adjustable strap. It can be worn over the shoulder or carried by hand for a carefree easygoing look.

TRIOMPHE MINAUDIERE IN LIZARD AUBERGINE

Straying from the modest vibes of Ava, the Triomphe Minaudière is a statement piece. Historically a coquettish piece of women’s eveningwear, the rigid box is conceived to store makeup on the go. As such, we love how the diminutive accessory can make such an impactful presence to complete a statement look.

A Successful Succession Indeed!

Under Phoebe Philo’s leadership, the Celine brand enjoyed a decade of growth with an artistic style that became well-loved by fans around the world. As expected, the slow shift to Hedi Slimane’s Celine will not be without its bumps. But slowly and surely, we’re confident that he’ll be filling in those shoes quite nicely.
