The Celine luggage bag has been highly coveted by countless celebrities and fashionistas since its creation. It comes in various sizes – nano, micro, mini, medium and shoulder. The mini size is the standard size that most people recognise.
I had three bags in mind when I went into the Celine boutique on Madison Avenue – trapeze, luggage and trio. I first tried on the Trio, the bag was simple and clean just the way I like my bags. I had already bought the Proenza Schouler PS11 mini bag and to me these two bags were too similar in size.
Then I moved onto trying on the Trapeze. To my surprise, the bag was extremely heavy. I couldn’t imagine carrying it on a daily basis given how heavy it was with nothing inside. It was also quite wide and bulky which didn’t fit with what I was looking for.
Last but not least I tried on the Luggage and to my delight it was much lighter than the Trapeze. I knew I wanted the Luggage in micro (26cm x 26cm x 14cm). I wanted an everyday tote bag for work that would still be relatively small and this bag fit the bill perfectly.
Choosing colours also proved to be most difficult. It was a choice between a single colour or tri-colour. In the end I went for the uniqueness of the tri-colour bag. I am very much in love with the colour scheme I chose. It is easy to match with all my clothing and the perfect size for work!
