Dakota Fanning was recently spotted in NYC carrying a Celine Trio Bag – the same Celine bag we spotted Kourtney Kardashian with last month. As far as Celine bags go, this one is certainly the most inconspicuous of the lot, which one can appreciate now that every celeb on the planet can lay claim to a Celine Phantom Luggage Tote or two. While in the past, we’ve lamented that Celine bags are nowhere to be found online, we’re ecstatic to report that there is a now a legit retailer who sells authentic, pre-owned Celine bags online. You can now shop Celine at Portero! Huzzah!

In case you were unaware, the Trio also has a neat little parlor trick – it has a detachable strap, and it’s made of three separate pouches that can unsnap from each other and be carried separately. Which reminds me, I’m looking for two other girls to go in on a Celine Trio “bagshare” arrangement with me. You get to carry the complete Trio every third week, and all parties involved have “single” clutch access every weekend. Who’s in?

It’s that time of the season again! Although the Celine Fall 2013 lookbook isn’t readily available on the front page of Celine’s website, we did a little digging and found all the press images of the collection, including the wood-grain Phantom Luggage Tote and Classic Box Bag that the press was absolutely giddy over at the collection’s press preview several months ago. There’s also a first-ever patent leather Celine Luggage Tote and a Celine Trapeze Bag with a croc flap – in other words, this is a group of bags that’s going to sell just as briskly as all Celine collections past.

This line, which is considered Pre-Fall 2013 in average fashion parlance (Phoebe Philo, in her infinite genius, realized that we already have four season names and don’t need to make up new ones), should become available in stores in mid-to-late summer. Check out all the lookbook images, arranged by style, below. All images via Celine.

Khloe Kardashian is acquiring quite an impressive collection of Celine bags – here she is carrying a pale yellow Celine Luggage Tote after leaving a business meeting with sister Kim and momager Kris. Earlier this year we spotted her on the sidelines of a Clippers game with a very enviable python flap Celine trapeze bag. Celine bags are only available from Celine boutiques and high-end department stores – a source of continuous irritation to bag lovers everywhere.

Khloe may want to cool it on the bag-buying for the time-being – as you’ve probably heard, Khloe and Lamar have received some flack recently for reportedly not donating a single penny of the millions of dollar’s they’ve raised for Lamar’s charity Cathy’s Kids to cancer research, one of the main causes the charity was originally intended to support.

Here’s Hilary Duff, taking a break from balancing her baby boy Luca on her hip to taunt us with yet another Celine Luggage Tote that she’s added to the hoard. This tricolor Celine appears to be the very latest addition to Hilary’s rather premium designer bag collection – you can get a glimpse of her many other Celines, Chanels, and Goyards in “The Many Bags of Hilary Duff”! Celine bags are only available at Celine boutiques and high-end department stores, natch.

I have a minor beef with this colorway of the Luggage Tote – I think the weird bright white, black, and beige combo makes the front panel look prematurely aged. But I’m basically never a fan of mixing beige and white, unless you have the skin tone to balance it all out. (I’m looking at you, Jessica Alba.) Perhaps it’s just the lighting of the photos, though – a nice butter yellow in the middle wouldn’t be bad.

Here’s yet another high profile celeb, swapping out her standard Hermes Birkin for a Celine bag. (The Celine Phantom Luggage Tote, to be exact.) Heiress Tamara Ecclestone looked dressed for a gym for bikers when she was spotted with her Celine in Beverly Hills. We’ve dished on the Ecclestone sisters and their unrivaled Hermes Birkin collection before (both sisters can lay claim to about a dozen different Birkins apiece), but Celines are the only daytime Birkin alternative we’ve ever seen either of them carry. As you might suspect, this isn’t Tamara’s only Luggage Tote, either.

Celine bags are only available in high-end department stores and Celine boutiques – how could Celine maintain that air of exclusivity otherwise? We’ve kvetched about this at length before; Celine fans who aren’t A-list actresses or billionaires, feel free to air your grievances here.

Real Housewife and lady entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel is hardly ever seen without an Hermes Birkin, but is it possible her Birkin fatigue is as advanced as everyone else’s? (Our “The Many Bags of Bethenny Frankel” post was almost 50% Hermes Birkins. And 60% Hermes. No lie.) Here she is with a cheerful, bright orange Celine Luggage Tote. As we lamented in this post just yesterday, Celine is still tragically not available from a single online retailer. Still, you can find their bags at Celine boutiques and high-end department stores worldwide.

If you love designer shoes as much as you love designer bags, you might notice that Bethenny’s boots appear to be tan Christian Louboutin Altbottes. (For a near-constant shoe fix, we recommend you check out our sister site, TalkShoes!)

If you’ve ever bought a Celine bag (and a lot of you have), you know it can be a complicated and, at times, frustrating process. When the Celine Luggage Tote first gained popularity several years ago, the brand forbade retailers from selling its wares online, which drove bag lovers to call and visit any number of department stores and boutiques in search of the right bag in the right color. Celine bags are now easy to come by in stores, though, so why can’t the brand just make us happy and sell them online?

A couple of years ago, for a company trying to build caché and buzz with a new designer and a nascent It Bag on its hands, Celine’s online sales ban made a certain amount of sense. A big part of fueling consumer desire in the luxury sector is creating the impression that your product is rare and valued highly by those who seek it, and if a bag is available at every online retailer known to man in a variety of colors, it’s hard to make the case for rarity. Making something hard to get only makes those who are interested yearn for it more, and making its bags (and everything else) scarce worked wonders for both Celine’s buzzworthiness and its bottom line. Now that the Luggage Tote has reached critical mass and Celine has solidified its spot within the industry, though, it might be time to change courses in order to reach even more customers. The bags are no longer impossible to come by.

The only other two major bag brands that I can think of that flatly refuse to sell their wares online are Chanel and Goyard; Chanel reps have talked openly about why they’ll only sell beauty and fragrance to those of us who enjoy online shopping (they don’t think that online sales provide the “Chanel experience,” although the company is looking to start offering ready-to-wear via its website in the next few years), and Goyard’s products are so often personalized that an in-person experience makes sense. Beyond that, all the major brands offer their bags online in some capacity.

Even Hermes, the king of handbag exclusivity and enormous waiting lists, sells a pretty wide variety of its products online, including plenty of handbags. (Although, notably, not its Birkins or Kellys.) Demand for Hermes products has only increased across the board, which is proof positive that when done correctly, online sales don’t necessarily harm a brand’s image or decrease the devotion of its clientele. After all, what’s more luxurious than ordering a product and having someone else fetch it and bring it to you in your own home? Anyone who lives in New York and has tried Net-a-Porter’s same-day metro delivery knows that it beats pretty much any other shopping experience there is.

We got excited recently when we saw a major retailer’s website start showing up in Google searches for Celine products, but as it turns out, there are currently no plans to actually retail the brand online. You can imagine our disappointment. So if not now, when? Celine is staying mum on the subject, but with the Luggage Tote and Trapeze Satchel readily available on retail shelves everywhere, we think it’s time that the brand loosened its reigns on online shoppers.

Here’s Kourtney Kardashian in Beverly Hills, rocking a striped (hot)pants suit while filming a scene for the upcoming eighth season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Her bag is a Celine Trio Bag, which is made up of three separate pouches that snap together, but can also be used separately, sans strap. Neat, huh? Prices vary a bit based on size, but you can expect to plunk down about a grand for this petite Celine creation.

Despite some hubbub about whether Kim Kardashian would even be back for season 8 of KUWTK, the gang is reportedly all present and accounted for – though both Kim, Kanye, and producer Ryan Seacrest have been very adamant that while Kim’s pregnancy will be a major plotline, the birth of little Kimye will NOT be televised. I can imagine all that definitely rubs Kourtney the wrong way, as she delivered both of her two babies on the show (much to our chagrin).

Victoria’s Secret model/rock n’ roll wifey Lily Aldridge was recently spotted in NYC quite expertly matching two of THE hottest and most coveted designer pieces currently on the market – a black and leopard print Celine Luggage Tote and a pair of Chloe Susanna Booties. Pairing animal prints and gold hardware sounds insanely tacky, but a heavy-handed sprinkling of each works well with this casual outfit. The Susanna booties can be yours for $1345 at Net-A-Porter, and Celine bags are sold at high end department stores and Celine boutiques worldwide.

If you’re still wondering who Lily’s hubs is – it’s Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill. They paired up in 2007 at Coachella (as rock frontmen and supermodels are wont to do) and tied the knot in 2011.

Here’s Khloe Kardashian and her BFF Malika Haqq looking super enthralled at the LA Clippers game. Khloe’s got a lovely python-front-flap Celine Trapeze Bag sitting in her lap, and as you browse through the additional photos after the jump, you’ll notice that both Malika and some unseen person sitting behind Khloe are carrying Celine Luggage Totes. Ladies and gents, we may have reached Celine critical mass in LA.

As you probably know (because you’re all such massive sports and/or E! network fans), Khloe’s husband Lamar Odom was traded to the L.A. Clippers after a single, slightly disastrous season in Dallas. Sadly, it looks like a third season of KUWTK spin-off “Khloe & Lamar” is out of the question until Lamar gets his game back. Happily, the Clippers beat the Rockets in this game, so that’s a start, right?
