For those of you awaiting the launch of the Céline Shoulder Bag in Singapore, I’ve got good news. Now available at the Céline boutique in Ngee Ann City, it’s truly a minimalist gem and one that’s got Phoebe Philo written all over it.
Shaped like a trapezium, the bag comes with a short shoulder sling that can be detached, which instantly gives you one of two ways of using it. With the strap, it’s a shoulder bag, without the strap, it becomes a clutch. More slouchy than structured, you’ll find 3 compartments on the inside, two compartments at either side, along with a compartment in the middle that’s topped with a zip.
Available in 2 sizes (the smaller one is A4-ish, the larger one is almost A3), there are currently 3 variations available locally. The first is a smaller rendition in pony hair (SGD4200), which gives the bag a very tactile quality.
The remaining two are much larger, in smooth soft calfskin, one in Grey (shown above) and another in Black, priced at SGD3380 a piece.
My heart’s pretty set on the larger one in Black, which I figure will make a great clutch/portfolio for myself. And because it’s so timeless, it will probably pay off in the seasons to come since I’ll be using it over and over again.
