First, as with all posts covering Celine handbags lookbooks, a caveat: the brand refers to the season that most of fashion calls “resort” as “spring” and the season that most of fashion calls “spring” as “summer. So, what you see here are technically Celine Spring 2014 Handbags, but they’re from the brand’s resort collection, in the larger scheme of things. (Meaning that they’ll be available sooner, so – yay.) If you’ve been a Celine fan or handbag lover in general for the past few seasons, you probably know what to expect.
The collection includes tons of Celine’s hits in new color combinations and leathers, including new Luggage Totes, Trapeze Bags and Cabas Totes of both the bicolored and zipper-gusseted varieties. Also available are new versions of what Celine is calling the Celine Tie Tote, which was new for Winter 2013 and plays on the wide-gusseted structure of the Luggage Tote, but with (you guessed it) a knotted handle attachment. For winter, the bags where shown with their top flap closures exposed, but in these product images, they’re tucked in. The bag is much, much more attractive for that styling decision – what looked so overwrought last time we discussed it now looks substantially more refined.
