Even as luxury brands slowly-but-surely embrace the Internet around them, Céline continues to stick it out; it’s one of only a small handful of big brands left that won’t sell any of its bags online, and that means any glimpse we get at what’s coming is something to treasure.


Once the air turns crisp, everyone gets excited to pull out their old fall favorites (or stock up on new fall favorites), and apparently this sort of seasonal nostalgia extends to Céline bags. Just think, in mere months our photo service will be awash in bare-legged, sandal-wearing celebrities in the snow.

By now, most of you have probably considered the advantages and disadvantages of buying a Celine bag. They’re beautiful! But they’re everywhere. They’re modern! But they’re everywhere. We’ve spent some time thinking about the exact same conundrums, and we’ve got one piece of advice, plus ten reasons to back it up: you really should go ahead and pull the trigger on a Celine bag if you love it.

Celine Dion’s lust for Celine bags can clearly not be sated by just one. (Can’t say we blame her.) Here she is carrying a sublimely navy blue calf leather Celine Classic Box Bag with gold hardware, while ambling around Paris with her husband.

Celine Luggage Totes

The frenzy over the Celine Luggage Tote has been at a fever pitch for seasons now, and somehow, it shows no signs of abating. The visual appeal of the bag is so contagious, in fact, that it has jumped from the fashion crowd straight to Hollywood.

Celine: Dressy or casual?

Phoebe Philo is a force to be reckoned with in the accessories world.
