Celine: The Luggage “Mini”


Don’t judge the bag carrier (I often run out of the house with wet hair, too. At least I hope that’s wet hair.) and just focus on the chic Celine Luggage Mini bag (on right) in black (I understand MK’s need for two bags while in NYC, her bags are her SUV).  I featured this bag a travel bag segment for NBC’s LX TV (I am the show’s bag expert :)) and fell in love with it.  It was not lust at first sight but love that grew as I got to know each curve, stitch and detail of the bag.  I played with it at Barneys on Madison when we filmed and was sad to leave this beauty behind.  Little details like the curved seam on either side and a discreet outer pocket really make the classic tote stand out.  I won’t lie, it’s a little bit on the heavy side but not any more than your average birkin or Chanel tote.  At $1,700 it’s helluva a lot more ‘price friendly’, too.  Celine is available at Barneys New York.  Call 212.826.8900 or call my SA Korey Williams at 469-221-4700, he’s the best!

  1. I also ADORE this bag. I held it at Bergdorf’s and Barney’s in New York, and came really close to buying it, but there were two issues nagging me: it is INCREDIBLY heavy, without anything in it, and it is extremely large for a petite woman like me. So sadly, I decided to give it a pass. As I said to the SA, I just wish it was 25% smaller!n

  2. Yes, this is definitely the one I saw, as I am about the same height as MK and I could tell by looking at the photo above. I was surprised when the SA at Bergdorf’s admitted to me that it’s incredibly heavy. But don’t get me wrong…I think it’s a stunning bag!

  3. I REALLY want to see MK’s and Ashley’s walk-in bag closet…or bag house…wherever they store everything. And while they weren’t looking I’d sneak out with their vintage Fendi croc Twins Tote. They’d never miss it.

  4. Where can I find more pictures? I would like to see the inside. I trip into NYC w/ three kids just to see a bag is not my idea of a fun day. 🙂

  5. I love how the bags are bigger than MK! I would bet money she could fit herself into either one. I heart oversize bags, but MK carrying around two at once just makes her look sloppy. Sloppy-chic, that is…

  6. You can see the bag, also the inside lining which is leather, at I think the size they have is not the mini though, it looks larger.

  7. Saw the Celine luggage bag in person the other day at BG. LOVE this bag. Just wish 1. It had protective feet at the bottom 2. It came in a dark brown leather/suede combo. 3. The handle was big enough to fit in the crook of your elbow when wearing a thick winter coat.

    Truly is a classic bag though. The craftsmanship is impeccable, the price point is spot on. It reminds me of a structured version of the YSL Downtown…
