I was certain I had written specifically about the Celine Trapeze bag on PurseBlog, but I haven't. It seems I spend time writing posts it my head and they never make it to my virtual paper. The Celine Trapeze came in after the never-ending hype of the Celine Luggage Tote and has only helped pick up speed (along with the rest of the Celine train) since then.
Let's break down the Celine Trapeze and see what everyone is buzzing about (and trust me, the buzz is worth it). While the Luggage Tote became recognizable for it's face-like front, the Trapeze is known for clean, sleek lines and extra-wide gusset sides. The flap front adds dimensionality, and, in some of my favorite Trapeze renditions, multiple colors and materials are used to bring this bag to life. The top handle has ample space to carry in your arm, and while you could fling it over your shoulder, majority just carry it in their hand or crux of their arm.
The most important aspect to note is the beauty in the simplicity of the design. So many bags have additions that distract from the original lines and style, but the Trapeze doesn't need anything more. Price for the Celine Trapeze starts at $2,300, inquire via Kirna Zabete.
