As the fashion world patiently waits for Celine’s Fall-Winter 2019 menswear show that will make its debut on the Paris Fashion Week calendar in January, know that the Parisian luxury brand’s SLG department has recently been updated to include a select number of pieces that men can definitely consider, all of which are available for purchase right now in Singapore.
It’s part of a larger collection titled Essentials, which Celine has coined for a range of SLGs that are minimal, elegant and totally high on function. The entire collection includes cardholders and zipped compact wallets which continue on from the existing SLG range, as well as all-new shapes that are unisex, some of which are specifically created for men.
Starting with the Bi-Fold Wallet, which is as classic as it gets for guys looking for a fuss-free piece that will hold cards and cash comfortably. Flip it open and you’ll find 8 credit card slots, 2 flat pockets by the side, and two larger note pockets for notes and receipts. Made in Italy, the 11 cm by 10 cm piece is currently available in several exteriors ranging from grained calfskin (SGD560) to croc-stamped calfskin (SGD620) and exotic lizard (SGD1100).
Another new shape includes the Multifunction Cardholder which comes in slightly wider than a standard cardholder. Measuring 14 cm by 10 cm, the piece comes with 2 flat pockets in front (identified by the CELINE PARIS logo), along with a third flat pocket and 2 credit card slots at the back. The fourth flat compartment over at the top? Well, that will fit your passport, which makes it perfect to carry along with you on your travels. It’s totally functional, as its name suggests, coming in a wide range of colour options for grained calfskin (SGD470), as well as croc-stamped calfskin (SGD490), at prices that won’t break the bank.
Then there’s the Compact Card Holder, (SGD410), another practical piece that allows you 4 credit cards and a flat slot at the back. Also available in Black, Grey or Navy Blue, it is the perfect companion for the bi-fold mentioned earlier, especially for those who would prefer everything in their SLG collection to match perfectly.
