Celine, meet Celine! Here’s Celine Dion, returning to her NYC hotel, clutching a Celine Classic Box Bag in leopard calf hair and black leather. This Celine-on-Celine action particularly tickles me because enterprising streetwear entrepreneurs have already emblazoned parody t-shirts with the Celine Dion name in the style of Celine’s brand logo. (Here’s an example on eBay.) Seeing Celine carrying something from the French brand is like a hilarious fashion dream come true.
The temptation to carry a high-dollar bag that bears your own name (sort of) is probably just too great. If “Emily” bags were suddenly a thing, sheer vanity would probably drive me to buy one. Of course, Celine could just be drawn to Celine’s bags for the same reasons the rest of us are: because they’re gorgeous. But it’s probably the name, right? She does have a famously good sense of humor.
