Céline “Trapeze” Bag: Gorgeous Enough to Inspire Acrobatics

If Céline‘s Luggage tote is the edgy answer to the Birkin, then the Trapeze is the Kelly’s more flamboyant counterpart. Single-handled with a large, sure-of-itself flap, it’s more streamlined and elegant than the Luggage, which, while appealing, verges on the cluttered side. Not the Trapeze. It has the foundation of a traditional tote – the classic square-ish shape and simple clasp on a foldover closure – but clearly, this bag is anything but traditional.

With fanned-out sides (that may be tucked in for an even more sleek silhouette), so distinctive in their bold direction and flared shape, it’s both uncomplicated and totally wild. In light-catching calfskin leather, winter-divine calfskin and shearling, irresistible python, and crocodile-embossed (plus, in two sizes), it’s going to be a tough call to choose just one. It’s swinging, it’s shapely, and since it definitely has the potential to put conventional tote bags to shame, it might inspire a Céline revolution (not that there’s not one in progress already!). I feel a major obsession coming on…
For $1,800 at Colette (in crocodile-embossed) and By George in Austin, Texas.
