There’s definitely a nautical theme going on with 3 of Celine’s latest bags under the Les Grands Classiques collection that’s also perfect for summer. Decked out with navy stripes on a cream textile body, the Clutch With Chain, Patapans and Triomphe are the ones to watch for the season, each carrying different elements and styles that make them unique enough to add to your ever-growing handbag collection. Besides, with prices ranging between SGD1100 to SGD4950 means there’s definitely something for everyone.
The trio starts with the Clutch With Chain (SGD1100), a compact-sized pouch that comes in at 16 cm wide and 11 cm high. Armed with a gold-finished chain that will allow you to wear it across the body or over the shoulder, this handy little one is perfect for days when you need a fun grab-and-go.
Next up would be the Patapans (SGD2850), one of the newest designs in the Celine family that measures 20.5 cm by 15 cm. The chunky curb chain gives it a cool edge, allowing you to slide the sling up or down (drop length ranging from 22 cm to 47 cm) to offer various ways of carrying. The inner zipped pocket is great for keeping SLGs safely secured, while the outer flat pocket is perfect for all your quick access needs.
Lastly, you can’t really go wrong with the Triomphe (SGD4950), thanks to its proportions that makes it a house classic through and through. It’s also the largest of the lot at 22.5 cm by 16.5 cm, with 3 main compartments to keep your essentials neatly sorted and organised.
These bags are finished with tan leather trims that serve as a beautiful contrast against the canvas body, with the trio now available at the Celine boutiques in Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre. Want to get it online? They are slated for a release there later this month. Which of the three would it be for you?
