There has always been this school of thought, that while grained leather is hardy and long-lasting, it isn’t always as beautiful as her polished smooth sister. That being said though, the latter is also prone to scratches that are often heart-breakingly visible, and every brand new bag owner’s ultimate nightmare.
So when there’s a grained leather that actually looks great on a particular style of bag, everyone rejoices, and in the case of Celine’s new Small 16 Bag in grained leather, it’s a definite celebration. Measuring some 23 cm across by 19 cm, this is also the smallest of bags from the 16 family, a new introduction to the French luxury house under the creative direction of Hedi Slimane.
Priced at SGD5300, which puts it in a higher price bracket than other bags this size from similar houses, the ones in grained leather only come in 2 classic colours for now, Black and White, both finished with gold-tone hardware. Available now at Celine boutiques in Singapore (that would be at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre), the only thing left for you to do is to head down for an up-close look. Interested?
