    From what I understand the Celine Belt bag is not popular, because it is impractical purse. The closure of the flap makes it very difficult to open and close. Plus, I think, people are starting to get a bit tired of Celine, in general. That said, the Belt bag is beautiful to look at.

  • Sandy

    Hmm..last summer I was obsessed with purchasing a Celine bag. Like many times before I went on the store determined to make a purchase. The bags IRL leave me wanting more. I looked at the Belt Bag and I must say that if I had a Celine bag I think it would be the one.

  • ellavanw

    I really like it but when I went to look at it in the store, I thought it would be too impractical for daily use. As with the Kelly, the handle attaches to the flap, so you have to close it all the way in order to carry it by the handle; otherwise you’ll destroy the bag. And it’s annoying to carry a tote that size and have to button it all up every time you take out your phone or your wallet.

      Oh, and if you carry it by the shoulder strap there’s a lot going on, what with the shoulder strap and the handle and the belt – to me it felt too fussy and dangly to be a good work bag.

    • Lisa

      Ellavanw, thank you for identifying the problem! I’ve never analyzed why I’ve never sparked to the Kelly and your comment is spot on — that design (and this Celine) really aren’t very practical, no matter how attractive in a photo.

    I just loooooovr that green one! There’s a lovely belt bag in a natural saddle leather in one of the big department stores I regularly visit that has my name all over it, but I just can’t commit to it because it seems so incredibly impracticle. Too bad really as it is quite a stunning bag style-wise.

  • FashionableLena

    Out of curiosity, I went to look at that bag and the Edge at Nordstrom. The Belt bag is gorgeous, but the closure is impractical for daily use. I actually found it a pain to get in and out of. My bags have to be nice to look at and functional.

    Why does Celine always get credit for the trapeze shape? My YSL Dowtown from 2008 had this shape long before the Celine bags came out.

    • Irina Rusu

      Seriously? There’s vaguely any resemblance. Celine makes a much prettier bag.

  • Melly

    I love my belt bag. The clasp isn’t any more annoying than my luggage zip that sticks a lot

  • Finem Lauda

    Is the bag in slide four black or blue? I can’t tell :c

    • Melly

      It is blue.

      • Finem Lauda

    • rigidmink

      • kaly

        ahahaha , I see what you did right there!!! ;)

      • Finem Lauda

        oh my god, marry me plz lmfao

  • Sara

    I rate this bag over and above Luggage and Trapeze. It’s simple yet sophisticated and utterly gorgeous. It needs no celebrity endorsing. In fact I hope celebs will keep away from it lol

    I love this bag!!! I agree with this post, it is a fantastic option to an everyday bag. It is on my list to buy. Here in Miami Céline is not as popular, you see random bags out here and there. But this city is still very much LV concentrated. So I really love it’s simplicity and anonymity!!! ;)

  • K

    I’ve never seen the bag in person. I do like the shape of the bag, but what are the long straps in the front suppose to do? Can it be untied?

  • Zinou

    My dh bought me the Celine belt bag a couple of weeks ago as a joint xmas and birthday gift and I enjoy having it! It’s beautiful and I can zip it up and quickly tuck in the flap so the closure doesn’t bother me. I personally don’t find it impractical. I sort of was wondering why I don’t hear as much about it here on purseblog so I was happy to see this article pop up! Incidentally 1/05 is my bday so it seemed like a happy omen that the post about my bday gift was posted on mybday ????!

  • Stella

    @Amanda I am in the market for my very first crocodile or alligator skin bag and I was wondering if you could give me some advice as to which brands and styles I should invest in. A post about it would be so helpful.

  • I bought a mint green Belt Bag during summer 2015 and have used it every day since then! This bag is great and the clasp isn’t difficult to me at all. You can close the flap over the “belt” strap or behind it which makes it super simple for me. I agree it should get more attention but at the same time want to keep it a secret for myself.

    I purchased the Celine Mini Belt in Paris last Oct. I have the luggage tote which I personally find heavy and hard to carry as an every day purse. The belt back is practical and light weight. I love it and think it’s such a classic understated bag :)

  • LL

    The straps on the side look a bit long to me.

  • I loved the grey felt with black leather details.

  • I carried the luggage everywhere for years but it was heavy even with very few things inside. I love the box more than the belt bag.

  • CelineLover

    I just bought one last week and I am so happy with it! Ungortunately the Luggage are way iverexposed so I opted for this one instead.

    • Jess

      So is it a flap that goes over the bag to keep it closed? is there a zip or anything? I’m always a bit hesitant with a bag that is wide open or has large gaps that people can put their hands into or a bag that cannot be closed/locked.

  • Pamela

    Love this bag! This would be a great work bag and j love that everyone doesn’t have it. That’s always nice.

  • nikki

    was not a fan of this bag what-so-ever when i first saw it, but theres something about it now that makes me kind of want one. however I heard getting in and out of the bag is quite annoying.

  • Mya Wilkes

    Totally annoying more like – the belt portion that is.

  • Oda

    Hello! I am thinking of getting a Céline Belt Bag and would be very happy for your help: I really love the shape – it´s classy but also modern and special. Love the details, the straps, the closure with button and zipper and also the practical aspect (shoulder strap). Just the choice of colour is tricky. As the item is quite an investment for me, I don´t want to buy a colour that I will soon become tired of. I own a black Mansur Gavriel bucket bag so would like to ad another colour. I am hovering between the green (almond) and the navy blue with red edges (both shown above). The green is somehow more special but not as versatilely as the blue. Navy blue however seems a bit conservative and even boring to me. So would this green be a good choice – long lasting colour that goes with many other colours? THANK YOU!!!

  • This bag is so good in every color! I ended up going for a black one, but the mustard yellow one is super unique! If you guys are interested in seeing the bag up close, I have more photos on my blog :) x http://www.forevervanny.com/2016/08/celine-belt-bag-black.html

  • Pamela

    Only $1500 euros in Venice! i want it

  • Zara Ali

    would a laptop be too heavy for this and make the bottom sink? I have a Mac book pro

  • I love the bag which is light in weight.
