Last December, it was reported in the fashion press that Anouck Duranteau-Loeper, Céline’s accessories director for the entirety of Phoebe Philo’s handbag-happy tenure at the brand, would be leaving to take a position at the newly revitalized Paco Rabanne. Based on the publicly available information and Duranteau-Loeper’s LinkedIn profile, it looks as though she has stayed on at Céline in some capacity, but the new gig means that her involvement in the day-to-day creation of the brand’s accessories is likely now significantly limited, or at least significantly different.
Celine Handbags and Purses
Here’s Kendall Jenner, dropping into the Barneys Soho location for a little shopping break after a couple days of pre-NYFW model castings. (No word on which designers’ runway show she’ll appear in first.) Her bag is an all-black Céline Nano Luggage Tote, which is among her favorites, and makes an appearance on both sisters in the The Many Bags of Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
[Editor's Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We'll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we'll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]
As we continue to inch our way through summer, the advancing date means just one thing in the fashion world: fall collections are starting to pop up all over the Internet.
Here’s Anne Hathaway filming The Intern in Manhattan, and that is indeed Robert DeNiro in a couple of these shots. Anne, or her character, in this case, is carrying a natural leather Céline Classic Box Bag. In a shocking twist, the intern in question is actually Robert DeNiro, and not Anne Hathaway.
The Celine Summer 2014 collection is currently in stores, and the most stand-out aspect of the line is the bright colors Celine used for the season. From bright green python to a trio of primary colors, we’ve gathered the nine most colorful bags of Celine Summer 2014.
Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, arriving at LAX to catch a flight with boyfriend Scott Disick. Kourtney’s carrying the Celine Knot Tote. There was healthy speculation that this bag would be Celine’s third huge hit in a row, right behind the Luggage Tote and the Trapeze Bag, but the Knot Tote just hasn’t caught on with the designer bag-loving masses quite like either of its predecessors.
This is one of those posts that needs little introduction. Celine’s Fall 2014 handbags (which are pre-fall, in tradition industry terms) have surfaced in the form of an official lookbook, and contained therein is a lot of what we’ve come to expect from Celine, plus a few interesting handbag debuts.
