Here is yet another Kelly-esque bag (the horizontal lines, east-to-west shape, you know the drill). But the latest Céline has a mood that is entirely its own. I love Pheobe’s ability to translate the most classic and quintessential of bags into something new, forcing me to gaze at them with a fresh eye, from a different perspective.
Thanks to Phoebe’s past work, the winged open tote has achieved cult status. Now it’s time for the top-handle winged bag! It’s obviously not about reinventing the wheel completely – and it doesn’t need to be. Rather, subtle tweaks here and there are enough to excite and entice. Whether in Palmelato calfskin or to-die-for black python, the fact that you can unzip it means you can take a smart top-handle and make it look seductively improper. Yet nothing here is jarring to the eye: a sense of familiarity and staying within the comfort zone is key, and it has been the formula for Phoebe’s success at Céline. Inquire at Céline at Barneys New York for purchase. Our former intern, Tracy Rosenberg, is now the assistant specialist at Céline- so proud of her! Call her for any of your bag needs- (212) 826-8900
