Celine’s Classic remains a hot favourite till this very day, living up to its name of being one of the brand’s signature styles if you’re all for a classy-looking boxy handbag. There’s something about the streamlined design and innovative clasp, opening via a simple push to an accordion-like interior that can be expanded slightly if you ever need extra space for your daily essentials. To charm you even further, Hedi Slimane unveiled an all-new Teen size for the Classic back in 2019, also referred to as the perfect ‘in-between’ for those who cannot decide between the small and medium sizes.
Today, the French luxury house continues to introduce new colours and fabrications, as well as give you plenty of reasons to fall in love with this iconic design all over again. For Fall-Winter 2020, Celine has introduced a lush velvet version paired with black calfskin for a sleek finish that works equally well for day and night. As you know, velvet is currently one of the season’s hottest materials, and this could prove to be your new favourite design if you’re all for a minimal look that’s free of unnecessary logos and over-the-top embellishments.
Now, here’s a little known fact about the Classic. The shoulder strap is removable, so you can go ahead and convert it into a hand-held clutch, which just scores it extra points in terms of versatility. But if you choose to keep the strap on, you can easily adjust it to various lengths and wear it casually over the shoulder or have it strapped across the body. The all-new velvet version is also priced lower at SGD4450 than the traditional versions in Box calfskin leather, and you can look forward to seeing it at both boutiques (Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre) in the coming weeks.
