You often hear the term ‘retro-cool’ being used to describe vintage items from yesteryears that are part-kitschy and part-fun. And if there’s just one bag from Spring-Summer 2020 that fits this terminology to perfection, Celine’s Nano Luggage in Floral Jacquard & Calfskin will be it. A cross between Laura Ashley’s intense floral patterns and your grandmother’s sofa, it is finished with jet black leather elements on that unmistakable silhouette that is Celine’s Luggage, immediately making it a sight for sore eyes.
Coming in the Nano Luggage size, this cutesy bag measures 20 cm tall (and wide), with a roomy interior of 10 cm that will hold your daily bits and bobs to perfection. As with all Luggage handbags, this one is secured with a top zip closure, armed with two top handles so you can carry it by hand. The great thing about this size is that they come with a removable leather strap, so you can go ahead and sling it across the body or over the shoulder.
True Celine (or is it Céline?) fans will know that this isn’t the first time that floral jacquard has been brought back at French luxury house. With Hedi Slimane now doing his very own take on handbags, the same floral print is found on bags like the Chain Maillon Triomphe and Vertical Cabas, both of which are not available in Singapore at the moment.
While the boutiques are currently closed from now till June 2020, feel free to reach out directly to 6225-4705 or 6736-0511, and the teams at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre will be available to assist you further. And if you need to know the price, the floral Nano Luggage is retailing at SGD2700, which is a pretty great price for the iconic Luggage.
