If you consider yourself a mini bag lover, then Celine’s Mini Vanity Case is surely one for your bag rotation. Don’t underestimate its compact size, as the vanity case doubles up as a top-handle handbag. One that offers sufficient space for your ID, along with a 15 ml perfume bottle, no less.
Its adorable proportions come in at 9.5 cm wide and 9 cm high. The 8 cm depth is also a plus, and with some clever organisation, might also fit your AirPods and keys. Aside from carrying it by its top handle, you can also opt to wear it over the shoulder via the extra leather sling.
In a digital age where most opt for e-wallet payments, all you need is a backup card or two. And both of these will fit within this mini bag, thus saving you the need for a wallet altogether. Besides, the Mini Vanity Case is such a darling to have, especially with new colours to choose from now.
Now, if you weren’t a fan of the Triomphe Canvas and Tan leather styles previously, the good news is that Celine is introducing brand new offerings in smooth calfskin. New for Spring-Summer 2023, the Mini Vanity Case now comes in Pink or White. Both come with matching coloured top handles and an oversized Triomphe emblem stitched in front.
Prices continue to remain relatively the same since it was first introduced. The Triomphe Canvas/leather is retailing at SGD1700, while the full-leather options are SGD2250 each. A textile interior for the Triomphe Canvas versus calfskin lining in the leather versions is the reason for the price difference, so it just comes down to what you prefer.
