1. The Celine Luggage Tote changed the handbag game
So many bags at virtually every price point mirror the Luggage Tote’s shape, proportion and flared gussets that we’ve done not one but two roundups to demonstrate the enduring trend. The Luggage’s success also set the stage for the Trapeze and Trio bags to proliferate their details out across the industry, so much so that it’s rare to find a designer bag that’s been produced in the past year that hasn’t been influenced in some small (or not-so-small) way by Celine’s ultra-covetable collections. Personally, we like the idea of owning the original if you choose to own anything.
