If you’re a firm believer in ‘the bigger the better’, you might want to take a closer look at Celine’s all-new Chain Bag Triomphe which features an elongated silhouette. Shaped like a wide loaf of bread (doesn’t it kinda look that way?), the 33 cm by 13 cm creation made its debut at the Fall-Winter 2021 show in Triomphe Canvas, and you will be pleased to find a second version in full leather as well, rendered in the bright and bold Pop Orange that’s guaranteed to make a statement whenever you’re out and about.
And while most continue to downsize/shrink their bags, Celine has opted for a bigger approach for the Chain Bag Triomphe, giving you a ‘larger’ size with extra space for all your daily bits and bobs. That includes your mobile phone (in any size), wallet, lip balm and a small bottle of hand sanitiser, which are all considered essentials for the day. The roomy interior even comes with an extra zipped compartment if you need added security, and you can also find another slip pocket under the flap for all your quick access needs.
You can choose to carry the bag by sliding the chain casually over the shoulder or opt to hold it like a clutch by letting the chain hang down for an effortless look. Priced at SGD3800 for the one in Triomphe Canvas and SGD4200 for the one in Pop Orange shiny calfskin, you will be able to find both bags available for sale in Singapore at Celine’s online store, as well as their recently-revamped boutique in Takashimaya Shopping Centre. Two practical choices which are equally stunning to boot, which would it be for you?
