The idea of wearing a petite hobo bag under the arm isn’t often seen at Celine, what with designs like the Belt Bag, Luggage and even the Triomphe all built to be worn over the shoulder or across the body. Which is why Celine’s upcoming Ava might pique your interest, for the simple fact that it comes in a silhouette that’s way different from all the current offerings available at the French luxury brand today. Interestingly, the bag isn’t a completely new design either, but one that’s revisited from their extensive archives.
Coming in a compact crescent shape that fits perfectly under the arm, the 23 cm by 14 cm bag is roomy enough for a good day’s worth of bits and bobs. And in today’s context, that will includes essentials like cards, cash and keys, with space for a pocket sanitiser and extra face masks. The Ava is part of Celine’s Triomphe Canvas line, identified by the link motif that takes inspiration from the chains encircling the legendary Arc de Triomphe. Each bag is finished with an extra coating to withstand the stresses of daily wear, along with tan leather elements (the adjustable top handle and trimmings on the edges) that give it that extra bit of luxe.
And if you’ve always liked the idea of collecting limited-edition bags, then you will be pleased to know that the Ava (SGD1700) is exclusive to Asia, with Singapore getting her allotment anytime now. All you have to do is give either boutique a ring at 6225-4705 or 6736-0511 to put yourself on the waitlist. Like right now, so you can channel Lisa’s (from Blackpink) style ASAP.
