PHOTO COURTESY OF CELINE
Unsurprisingly, miniature (nanos, micros and such) bags are still very much on trend till today. And with new collections progressively launching through September, meet Celine’s latest take on its signature 16 bag, the Small 16 Wallet On Chain.
The 16 was one of Hedi Slimane’s first creations when he took on the role of creative director at Celine. Now, it spawns a new spin-off in black and tan shiny calfskin leather, measuring just 14 cm wide and 11 cm high.
Gold-tone hardware complements this miniature format. Give the turn-lock closure a gentle twist and you will find a spacious compartment within. It packs four card slots and a single zip coin pocket. That’s more than enough space for a lipstick, AirPods and even a tiny bottle of hand sanitiser.
The beauty of this accessory lies in the removable chain, which offers easy conversion from a wallet to a bag. Love the 16 and can’t wait to get your hands on a downsized version? This wallet-on-chain (priced at SGD1850), is it.
