First, as with all posts covering Celine’s handbag catalogues, a word of caution: the brand refers to the season most fashion calls “resort” as “spring” and the season most fashion calls “spring” as “summer”. So what you see here is technicallyCeline Spring 2014 Bags, but they are from the brand’s resort collection, in the larger scheme of things. (Which means they’ll be available sooner, so yeah.) If you’ve been a Celine fan or bag lover in general for the past few seasons, you probably know what to expect.
The collection includes tons of Celine’s hits in new color and leather combinations, including new luggage tote bags, trapeze bags, and Cabas tote bags of the two-tone and zip-gusset varieties. New versions of what Celine callsare also available. Celine Tote Bag, which was new for winter 2013 and plays off the luggage bag’s wide-gusset structure, but with (she guessed it) a knotted handle. For winter, the bags were shown with the top flap closures exposed, but in these product images they’re tucked in. The bag is a lot,muchmore appealing for that style decision: what seemed so over-the-top the last time we discussed it now looks substantially more refined.
