Famke Janssen carries a Celine Luggage Tote in LA (1)

I think we can safely say the celeb obsession with Celine Luggage Totes has peaked. We’ve seen fewer and fewer celebs with their Celines in recent weeks, but here’s actress Jordana Brewster (of TNT’s Dallas and the Fast & Furious franchise, natch) carrying a Celine Luggage Tote in LA. It’s curious to see how certain bag trends mozy around Hollywood, from the hyper couture fashion-obsessed set, to stylists, A-listers, ridiculously wealthy reality stars and then well, everyone else. You can shop for pre-owned, authentic Celine bags at Portero.

Admittedly, there was a time when I thought the Celine Luggage Tote might be the next Hermes Birkin, but it seems to have lost some steam in recent months. Is is possible Celine is doing itself a disservice by releasing so many amazing bags simultaneously? At this point, I’d pick a Trio or a Trapeze over a Luggage Tote. (Or maybe my mind would remain forever deadlocked in a case of Celine-induced existental paralysis.) If you saw our preview of Celine Winter 2013, you know there are even more must-haves on the way. Has Celine simply outdone themselves in a way that might be a little detrimental to the sales of select designs? DISCUSS.

    I disagree with the MLT losing its appeal. Especially not for me as I do not let celeb drive my desire for my or a handbag as they do not let my desire drive theirs!!

      Handbaghandbag I couldn’t have said it better! I agree with you, and find that celeb fashion choices (especially accessory-related) are not a good example of what is appealing or not, nor of what is “in” or not. Celine bags are beautiful and timeless, and constantly evolving. I’m sorry Emily, I think you went off on a wrong tangent!

    It may not be a Birkin, but I see it having the staying power of some of the other modern classics like the Balenciaga motorcycle bag. Some things are just so nice that they stick around.

      I’ll second to that! I have a Chanel, Celine Luggage Tote, Fendi, 4 LVs, 3 Bottega Venetas, 2 Pradas, Gucci but I always am gravitating for another Balenciaga motorcycle purse in my already vast purse collection.

  • Purse lover

    I have to disagree as well. The Celine luggage has reached a point of being more of classic than a trendy IT bag IMO. It is not as exposed and is carried by those who appreciate the simplistic modern design and functionality. It is a beauty!
