A few years ago, I spotted the Celine 16 structured bag while flipping through a fashion magazine and decided THIS was the perfect “it” bag for me.
I love the simple clean lines, and the elegant curvature to the front and back and solid exquisite hardware. It’s made of satinated calfskin and as a part time vegan, believe me when I say I feel guilty about this. It has a removable shoulder strap and a twist lock closure and a padlockbon a leather key cover.
Lady Gaga made an appearance in Paris, France with it while wearing a classic pencil skirt length dress in a bold orange with the perfect pair of black leather pumps and accented with a sexy pair of Ray Ban aviator shades!
I immediately added it to my want list. Back then, it was on auction sites and running about $5,000 but as it is not a Birkin and has not appreciated. Instead the price has come down to a modest $3,200. Not bad if you want to look like the HBIC.
I am trying to navigate away from black and so I think I’m going to go with the 16 inch version in a burnt orange for $3,700….one of these days!
If you got it, GET IT! Tag me at @Bellyitch when you do!
