Céline Clasp Bag

3 weeks ago by

Sometimes the most wanted item of a season flies a bit under the radar. For instance, this spring’s Céline clasp bag – understated and refined, worn by every sophisticated editor and army of corporate women alike.

I’ll admit that I’m guilty of becoming star struck at the sight of shiny bags with kitschy sayings in pop colors. But in reality, what I want, and what I need is a forever bag. Something that can stand the test of time and look the part 20 years from now. Not because it’s showy, but because it’s precise.

Elegance be warned, we’re onto you and your beautifully crafted handbag ways. Yes, and you too Céline.

Bag, Céline

  • classic it is but also sort of “lady like” and …. conservative ? Not sure its really me….

    I came across it today in May edition of UK Vogue! It feels positively ‘granny” like yet it’s so understated and elegant. Very up my street.

    Les sacs Céline sont toujours des réussites. Quand je pense que ma grand-mère en avait plusieurs, tous de grandes maisons, jetés par ma mère les trouvant complètement ringards, trop Anémone Giscard d’Estaing!!! Arghh! La mode, la mode, la mode!

    I love it but it really reminds me of the Queen’s handbags.

    Where to get this amazing bag?

  • It looks like the kind of bag I would LOVE to inherit from my mom. It’s that classic.

  • The bag is elegant but to me me I echo Judi plus being from the UK it reminds me of the 80’s and the Conservatives and class barriers back then.

  • Love this! My mom had a purse that is very similar to this, except in cream, not black. She bought it in the early 80’s and it was still in terrific condition when I spotted it in her closet. I snatched it for my own the minute she didn’t want it anymore. Some classic items just get cooler with age!

  • A classic bag , is a thing of beauty! The bag that is a trend for a season or two is often purchased at H&M or the like . Make an investment of money and commitment to a classic bag , it is a relationship . I recently wrote a post on “An Investment Bag.” You may 2 time but often the first is the best .

  • I saw this bag today and I was thinking the exact same thing! I love that it comes with a gold chain as well. Celine really knows how to tap into the classics – like the box bag reminds me of stewardess’s airline bags…timeless.

  • Gorgeous, but .. 2100$ ! such a turnoff. Even if I had all that money to spend, that would pay me a nice holiday! plus some charity ;) and much more. I know it’s hard to combine fashion and good prices, but could you please offer some cheaper/affordable suggestions (at least sometimes)? that would be totally worth the effort
