I DREAM OF CÉLINE
There has been a shift on the runways to a more understated elegance and who better to credit than Phoebe Philo for this movement. Stephanie has been on the hunt for a classic, ladylike handbag since Céline's new creative director resurrected the Classic Box Bag (seen here on Jak and Jil). With its vintage feel, luxe skins and minimalist gold hardware, fashion editors were eagerly swapping in their roomy totes and slouchy bohemian bags for this design. To her sheer delight, Stephanie came across this vintage Céline handbag from the 1960s at an antique gallery. With its deep chocolate brown leather and traditional gold horse and carriage inspired hardware, its a stunning find. Now having a comparison, one can really appreciate Phoebe Philo's updated elements to the classic design. And the best part is this timeless design will transcend trends of the season.
