You’ll soon be able to pre-order Hedi Slimane’s latest handbag for Celine

Hedi Slimane's vision for Celine is set in concrete as he releases a brand new version of his debut bag...

There’s no denying that when Hedi Slimane took over the reins at Celine, it sparked some serious concerns. His grunge approach to fashion replaced the beloved Phoebe Philo-era at the fashion house and whilst his style was radically different, Slimane’s new appointment represented a fundamental shift in Celine’s history.

He turned the page and strongly showcased his vision in 2018 with a new handbag design that people went gaga for (quite literally). First spotted on Lady Gaga in Paris, the structured construction of the 16 handbag was introduced as a new key signature of the house.

Now, what has become a cult classic, Celine’s 16 handbag received an update offering a casual take to the silhouette.

The new 16 Soft is the ultimate piece of arm candy this season consisting of two leather options: a smooth calfskin and a supple grained calfskin.

Available in five different colours, the softer version of the iconic bag features a new padlock enriched with a refined casing, a vertical leather band, a round hand and the 16 iconic cloche-clés.

Celine’s 16 Soft handbag is available for pre-launch from June 5, 2020 on the official e-store.
