I hate Pre-Fall for the same reason that I hate Resort: It’s so hard to get good pictures of the bags, shoes and accessories when the lines debut. Because most designers have small shows or presentations for a very small group of buyers and editors and then simply release lookbook images to the fashion press at large, the detail shots that you get during the big, somewhat public Spring and Fall runway shows are basically nonexistant. Still, though, we do the best we can to sniff out as much information (and as many pictures for you guys) as we can find.
With that in mind, I’ve done some Internet sluething and come up with the best pictures available of Celine Pre-Fall 2011 Handbags. That includes shots from preview-attenders that were posted to Twitter and Facebook, as well as a look at the brand’s official images from the collection. If you spot any we’ve missed floating around on the Internet, let us know and we’ll add them to the gallery.
