Celine Tribute to Charley Harper Cut Out ToteI have a relative that only wears Celine bags. No joke. But I can hardly imagine her slinging this Celine Tribute to Charley Harper Cut Out Tote over her shoulder. It’s so different than most of Celine’s bags: nice leather that’s not too soft, boxy shape, squat handles.

I like it, but I’m always attracted to cutesy things- no one can say that this little bird on the front is not cute. However, I would never actually wear it. But there is no denying its cuteness. I think this does a good job as a tribute to the late modernist artist Charley Harper, though if it was up to me I’d like to see something a little less front and center- combined with a cute lining that featured his prints. Nevertheless, the bird face fits the artist’s style to a T.

That said, I’m a big fan of resin chain straps as opposed to metal chain straps (it doesn’t get cold like metal!), especially chunky black ones like this. Luckily it is removable, though, because this bag would look a lot nicer, and less overwhelmed with detail, as a tote instead of a tote-with-a-long-strap. Buy through Bloomingdales on sale for $1,085.

    Cute bag although I would never ever pay that much for a “cute” bag even if I were rich enough! I actually prefer metal chains, it seems classier to me than resin chains which remind me of those kid toys hehe. Always cool to see something different though!

    My ten year old wouldn’t carry this.

    Eeew! Celine was at its heyday with its Boogie bag. This is just a little tragic.
