CELINE F/W'11 LUGGAGE TOTE
I'm pretty sure Céline fanatics out there are keen to find out what the Classic Luggage Totes will look like for the Fall-Winter'11 collection of fashion stalwartPhoebe Philo. From what I've gathered there are several designs available specifically in tartan, shearling and color block. In my humble opinion, I'm not as keen with the designs [apart from the Phantom Luggage Tote] as with the previous 2 season's take on the Classic Luggage; nonetheless they're still worth ogling over.First up, is the Céline Luggage Shopper in Tartan Tweed. It's a but unconventional for my taste but it does have it's own appeal. My word on this one - I personally prefer the Tartan Tweed on the Céline Cabas. From what I gathered, this version of the luggage will cost anywhere from SGD 2000 to SGD 2500[USD 1600-USD 2000] depending on the size [probably for a mini and a medium respectively].
Another one of the more eccentric designs would be this piece in Shearling. This one is a bit reminiscent of the design released a season or 2 back; but I think this design has better impact and lasting power than that of the Tartan Tweed. But best to see the pieces before we lay down any further judgments.
And finally, we have the Color Block designs in traditional leather. I've seen 2 so far - one in a Slytherin-esque [think Harry Potter] color combination of forest green and black. The other in a sleek combination of dark blue and brown.
Personally I prefer the one in blue-brown combination. I find it has this certain appeal that stands out in a crowd. I'll need to gather more information on the pricing of the leather ones but if no changes are made to previous pricing then they can cost anywhere from SGD 2700 to SGD 3500[USD 2100 to USD 3000].
So if you're itching to grab a piece of Céline Luggage Shopper/Tote then head on down to your nearest boutique and queue up for the upcoming July launch of Phoebe Philo's iconic creations!
