She’s a beauty, this one. This small, beautifully-grained little number that while doesn’t hold as much as she should, is just a joy to have. And to hold. Yes, I’m talking about the the Small Trotteur bags from Céline’s Summer 2016 collection that are already available in Singapore.
Besides the fact that they come in the leather that I love, the colours they come in this season have hit the colour jackpot as far as I’m concerned. Seriously, people, look at the one in Light Forest that’s shown above, which contrasts ever so beautifully against that slightly-aged gold-tone hardware clasp. Love, no?
And then’s there the one in Jade, that’s even more, as they say, more sublime than the former.
Last but not least, presenting the Small Trotteur in Carnelian, a beautiful hue of sun-kissed orange that makes me just want to lick my screen now. Priced at SGD2400 in Singapore, you’ll find them in Céline boutiques in Marina Bay Sands or Ngee Ann City, and if the Small is too tiny and the Large is too big, I hear the Medium is a) making a comeback to the shelves or b) is a new size that’s going to be released soon.
Either way, I’m still loving the smallest size the most, which I can even imagine myself using slung across the body with the barest of essentials for those carefree, casual days. Yes, that’s what I always tell myself when I’m buying small, tiny bags. And it usually works. Now excuse me while I go wipe my drool off the screen.
