Do a quick search of ‘maillon’, and you will find that the French word translates to ‘link’ in English, one that’s closely associated with the steel carabiner that typically comes in an oval shape. This explains why the Triomphe logo on the relatively new handbag comes with a twist, via the addition of an oval link surrounding the signature motif right in front. Coined the Maillon Triomphe, this refreshed closure bears similarities to the chain links surrounding the famed Arc de Triomphe, reinterpreted to form an entirely new range of handbags available at Celine today.
Bags in the Maillon Triomphe family feature curved corners that carry a casual appeal, perfect for the ladies (or men) who are looking for a great alternative to the boxier and more formal Triomphe bag. Should you find the full leather pieces a tad too simple for your liking, you can always consider this version that comes in a mix of calfskin and textile, which is also hardier when compared to smooth leather. Measuring 22 cm by 17 cm, the Medium Chain Maillon Triomphe will hold a good day’s worth of everything you might need, from your compact wallet to your handy bottle of hand sanitiser and then some.
Instead of a full leather sling, it is mostly made of chain links, with a bit of leather that will sit over your shoulder that when worn will provide comfort from the otherwise full metal sling.
