Purple lovers, this one’s for you. Celine launches not one, not two, but six different bags and SLGs in an irresistible Light Lavender hue. This is not only a completely new colour at the French fashion house, but each piece also comes with complementary gold-tone hardware. This appears in the form of a chain sling and Triomphe clasp, as well as 16 turnlock with matching padlock.
Leading the Light Lavender pack is the Mini 16 (SGD4650) in satinated calfskin. One of the first bags Hedi Slimane created for Celine, it measures 17.5 cm wide and 14 cm high. The material boasts a satin-like finish, so you can expect a glossy treatment that’s also smooth to the touch. It also comes with a structured top handle and extra shoulder strap to provide additional ways of carrying.
The next two are variations of the classic shoulder bag. The first of these is the Chain Shoulder Bag Triomphe (SGD4650). The dressier option comes in a compact 20.5 cm by 10.5 cm size with cool chain sling detailing on top. The Teen Triomphe Bag (SGD5400), on the other hand, features a more practical leather shoulder strap. Measuring 18.5 cm by 14 cm, its interior comprises three accordion-like compartments ideal for daily use.
For SLGs, the Small Wallet Triomphe (SGD940) features five card slots, a note compartment and a folded coin pocket. There’s also the compact Card Holder Triomphe (SGD740) if you prefer something even smaller, with the handy size opening to reveal a single compartment for cards and folded notes.
Rounding up the pack, the Wallet On Chain Triomphe (SGD2450) offers six card slots and a removable chain-and-leather sling.
In a delicate shade of purple that will make even Barney blush, these Light Lavender bags and SLGs have descended at Celine Singapore’s online store, as well as the boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre.
