If you’re a fan of everything Céline but already own the Nano, Mini, Trapeze and then some, here’s something totally different for you to consider. From the F/W12 collection, the Céline Zip Clutch is well, not exactly a bag, but as the name suggests, simply a landscape leather clutch sans handles.
What it lacks in handles, however, is made up for by its supremely minimalist design, the clean surface broken only by a long zip that runs right across the clutch. At the end of the zip you’ll find a small circular hoop with tassels attached to it, and that’s pretty much it.
Unzip it and it ‘opens’ up to reveal compartments on the inside; unconventional and rather unique in terms of the design, this is one of those pieces you either love, or loathe. And frankly, although it’s from the womens collection, I do think more guys will be enamoured. Retailing for SGD1650, you’ll find it now in a variety of colours at Céline Ngee Ann City.
If the Nano, Mini and Trapeze are more to your taste, however, I spotted a huge shipment of these bags yesterday at DFS Galleria Scottwalks, where they had at least 13 Trapeze bags on display, for example. Prices are also a lot higher now, with the Nano selling for SGD2800 and the Mini priced at SGD3650.
