All eyes were on Lady Gaga and her gorgeous black leather bag during her visit to the Lourve in August this year. “Could it be?” They pondered and murmured with excitement; and not too long after, Lady Gaga’s stylist confirmed the bag was indeed designed by Hedi Slimane. Since its official debut, the bag has been seen on celebrities Angelina Jolie and K-pop group Blackpink’s very own Lisa.
Named after Celine’s headquarters and atelier, The Hotel Colbert at 16, Rue Vivienne, the 16 bag, was designed on Hedi Slimane’s first day of arrival at the French luxury house and is inspired by the chic Parisian way of wearing a bag. Worn with or without the detachable strap to go over your shoulders or simply, as a top-handle bag in your arm, the bag gives off an effortless demeanour that is suited to the modern, contemporary women of today.
In addition, the bag pays tribute and homage to Celine’s history and aesthetic, featuring specific ’60s details that are notable throughout its timeless design, such as the cropped flap and the belted rounded features bag. The bag is available in three sizes, various colours and a wide range of leathers. If you are looking for something a little more luxurious and unique, the bag is also available in exotic leather.
If you are looking for a new classic bag to splurge on, head over to Celine to purchase the 16 bag!
