Unless you're brand new to Céline, you're well aware that the brand tends to show far more unusual and conceptual bags on its runways than the majority of what actually ends up getting stocked in stores. Instead of Luggage Totes and Trapeze Bags, Céline's Spring 2016 runway show was full of voluminous, pillowy leather satchels and hard-edged little hand totes with snap-on front compartments.
There was one gorgeous lavender crocodile Classic Box Bag, as though to remind consumers that the brand also makes bags that many of them enjoy buying. Personally, I would love to get my hands on one of the puffy, soft satchels, but only in the most literal sense; they look like they're made of the softest lambskin in the world, and I'd like to touch them.
Deflated slightly, I could see those bags having a certain amount of consumer appeal, but for the real handbag fireworks, we'll have to wait until Céline's Spring 2016 lookbook appears online. (As soon as it does, we'll bring you all the photos.)
