If there is one singular trend in fashion that is everywhere, it's all things vintage or vintage inspired. Certain eras are seeing a serious resurgence, particularly the 70s and the 90s. It's no surprise that the vintage movement is continuing on into the fall, as consumers are shopping actual vintage fashion now moreso than ever. Because of this, designers are continuing to look into their archives for inspiration, releasing new designs that give off an old-school vibe, meaning they'll remain relevant for years to come.
For its latest bags, Celine is tapping into its rich history once again, introducing a new line of embroidered bags for fall/winter 2020. The designs feature a repetitive Triomphe logo print, which is similar to vintage printed designs from the brand. Named after the Arc de Triomphe, and adapted by Celine’s founder Céline Vipiana, the Triomphe logo is one of Celine's most important house codes. It has been reimagined by creative director Hedi Slimane time and time again, remaining a staple in the brand's collections. In its latest iteration of an icon, Slimane has taken a Triomphe logo print and married it with fabric embroidery.
The Triomphe Embroidered bags are crafted from embroidered textile with calfskin trimmings and feature a coordinating textile lining. Designs from this line feature gold hardware detailing, though the exact hardware varies based on design. While the Cabas tote bears a leather patch with a gold Triomphe medallion, the line's Boston bag has a drop chain with a hanging padlock, key and Mallion Triomphe charm. The chain can also be customized with personal charms which are sold separately.
Both bags are available via Celine, as part of the Winter Part 1 Drop. The Cabas tote retails for $2,600, while the Small Boston Bag sells for $2,450.
