Before you go pointing out the fact that another luxury brand did this first, take this as the fashion industry’s way of giving you (the buyer/consumer) another option to consider if you’re on the hunt for stylish basket bags woven from raffia. Yes, Celine has finally introduced their very own spin on the ubiquitous basket bag, with two sizes that are perfect for the everyday. The Medium measures 31 cm by 25 cm, while the Large comes in a tad bigger at 35 by 28 cm, and the good news is that both sizes are priced the same at SGD730.
Simply coined the Triomphe Basket Bag, it comes with two elongated top handles (a drop length of 33.5 cm) so you can sling it easily over the shoulder as shown on the runway back at Paris Fashion Week. Both sizes are also great for your grocery runs, and you can fill them up with your week’s worth of supplies, so you don’t have to make unnecessary trips now and then. Should you plan on keeping it home 24/7, then you can always leave the leather handles down and use it as a laundry basket (a super chic one, of course), keeping it at the corner next to your washer, which is as fancy as it gets.
Both the Medium and the Large come with an oversized Triomphe logo right in front, making it perfect for the fans of all-things Celine. Both sizes are available in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre, so you can give either boutique a call at 6225-4705 or 6736-0511 to arrange for direct-to-door delivery.
