When it comes to small leather goods, my personal framework of evaluation is somewhat different than it is for bags. When looking at a bag, appearance is super important to me—after all, one of its two primary purposes is to be seen. For wallets, card cases and other little accessories, though, function trumps form in my mind, although form is still important—I may not be looking at my wallet as much as I look at my bag, but there’s no reason something useful can’t also be aesthetically pleasing. In my mind, Céline strikes this balance perfectly, and a new set of the brand’s sublimely simple accessories just hit the internet for Summer 2018.
In workhorse products like wallets, Céline’s commitment to minimalism under departing designer Phoebe Philo really shines, with simple, beautiful products that do exactly what you hope they will: keep you chic and organized. Check out the most recent season below.
