It’s time to acknowledge the fact that Celine’s Triomphe emblem is here to stay. There’s an entire line-up of handbags featuring (and named after) the icon, along with wallets and SLGs bearing the shiny gold-tone hardware clasp right in front. Don’t forget the costume jewellery in all shapes and sizes, RTW bearing it as an emblem, shoes, and even an entirely new monogram referred to as the Triomphe Canvas. In other words, brace yourself for an era of all-things Triomphe under Creative Director Hedi Slimane, with Celine continuously introducing new designs that come with the unmistakable logo clasp.
The French luxury brand unveiled the Triomphe Strap Bag during the Fall-Winter 2020 runway show, and you will be pleased to know that it has finally arrived on our shores in a sublime tan leather. Measuring 21 cm by 15 cm, this wonder of a bag was styled under the arm like a cool handbag, but you can also detach the strap altogether and use it as a hand-held clutch, making this one of the rare few Triomphe designs that come with a removable element.
Yes, there were also exotic versions that came down the runway, but for now, you can get your hands on the calfskin version (fully lined in lambskin, by the way) over at the new Celine duplex boutique at Marina Bay Sands. Everyone appreciates a little versatility when it comes to their styling options, especially when you can have two (or more) looks with just one bag. That’s where the Triomphe Strap Bag (SGD3150) comes in, a brand new alternative that scores top points in terms of form and function.
