CELINE introduced the first bag designed by newly-appointed artistic, creative and image director Hedi Slimane. Named The 16, after the location of CELINE’s headquarters and atelier at 16 Rue Vivienne, the bag’s design is based on the very Parisian way of carrying a bag.
The name of Celine’s new classic comes from the Maison de Couture’s Paris address, the hôtel colbert, at 16, rue Vivienne in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris. The «16» was designed by Hedi Slimane on the first day of his arrival at Celine. A design that is based on the very Parisian way of wearing a bag. The «16» recaptures the codes of some of the Maison Celine’s historic bags, featuring specific 60’s details such as the cropped flap as well as rounded and belted effects. The finest skins have been chosen for this new Celine classic, including the most beautiful exotic leathers. – from Celine
Available in three sizes and a wide range of colours and materials, the bag will be available in store in November 2018.
Recently, Lady Gaga and Angelina Jolie showed off Hedi Slimane’s first bag for CELINE.
