PHOTO COURTESY OF CELINE
If you can’t get enough of Celine’s oversized Triomphe logo, you will be happy to find even more options that fall under the French luxury house’s new-in designs for the season. Aptly named ‘oval’ after its egg-shaped silhouette, Celine has created at least 3 styles known as the Oval Bag, Oval Minaudière and even a little oval coin purse, which are all different when it comes to function and size.
The Oval Bag (SGD2450) is more of a crossbody design thanks to the adjustable leather strap attached at the sides. With a 52 cm drop length, you can sling the 20 cm by 15 cm bag across the body to channel that cool (and casual) Celine vibe. The gold-tone zipper closure at the top will also ensure that your items are kept secured at all times, making it a fun style for daily use.
As for the Oval Minaudière (SGD2350), you can think of it as a more ornate take which is slightly smaller at 14.5 cm by 10 cm. In place of the shoulder strap, Celine has added a structured top handle, creating a ‘dainty’ look befitting its name. The lack of zips also gives it a sleeker look all-around, with a magnetic frame closure keeping everything within secure.
Then there’s the little oval coin purse (SGD840, 11 cm by 9 cm) that’s as nifty as it gets, and as the name suggests, is perfect for coins, loose keys and other odd little bits.
All 3 styles available in classic Celine colours like black and tan (for more information, do check out Celine boutiques in Singapore), and all are made in full leather with the signature ‘Cuir Triomphe’ logo embossed across it. In other words, these chic options are the perfect addition to any Celine fan’s bag wardrobe for the season.
