Of course you’d find the Céline Luggage Tote at the airport! The name itself lends it to being used for traveling, as you can see it being carried by model Bella Hadid.
The French Céline brand started as a custom shoe making boutique for children in 1945 by Céline and her husband. In the 1960’s they decided to revamp their brand to ready-to-wear fashion for women including accessories such as luggage and handbags.
Céline debuted the iconic Luggage Tote in 2010. With it being sighted on the arms of the right celebrities, the bag shot up in popularity and hasn’t stopped its ascent yet. It is considered a true timeless iconic bag, much adored and owned by celebrities and fashionistas.
The “Luggage Tote” is well named as the side flaps can be tucked in to carry just enough or splayed out so that you can carry more than you need for jet setting around the world.
The bags come in the following sizes: nano, micro, mini, medium phantom and large phantom. Since it’s release, Céline has discontinued certain sizes. Currently there are varying sizes and colors and materials available including felt.
You’ll find that the felt is much harder to take care of than leather, however, it’s cheaper than the leather bags. Felt is not for everyone and one should love all aspects of a bag to put down this many benjamins. The bags have a zipper closure on top and an exterior side zipper pocket and double flat pocket inside. There are protective studs at the base, which is a must when lugging the bag around airports.
