Here’s celebutante Nicky Hilton after a little shopping trip to 14 Karat in Beverly Hills. You’ll notice her bag is the instantaneously recognizable Celine Trapeze Bag, and her shoes should be just as easy to ID – they’re the notorious Isabel Marant Bekket Sneaker Wedges.

Just like we did with Proenza Schouler’s Pre-Fall 2013 presentation earlier this season, when we heard that Celine Fall 2013 (Celine calls pre-fall “fall” and fall “winter”) was debuting to a very limited press audience in New York City earlier this week, we took directly to Instagram and Twitter to see what kinds of pictures the most in-the-know editors and buyers would be tweeting from their appointments.
Before you read the word “summer” and tell us we’re getting ahead of ourselves, a reminder: what Celine calls spring is actually resort, and resort is already available in Celine boutiques. This collection, termed Celine Summer 2013, is then the next thing to arrive in stores.
I’ve been eyeing the Celine All Soft Shoulder Bag ever since Celine Spring 2013 popped up on the Internet (for Celine newbies, the brand calls its resort collection “spring” and its spring collection “summer”), and now that the line is set to launch in Celine boutiques on Thursday (along with the rest of spring), it seemed only fitting to take a closer look at what makes the bag so appealing.
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.
