Did I miss something? Since when is it a good idea to make a handbag that looks like a pillow? Seriously, Céline recently updated its handbag line with new designs for Spring 2016 and these new bags are the ugliest I’ve ever seen from a luxury handbag maker.
Amanda Mull recently wrote an article on PurseBlog with photos of every new handbag Céline has released for Spring in which she says, “Céline’s Summer 2016 bags (which are a Spring 2016 collection, by the fashion calendar) hit the Internet earlier this week, and it’s the strongest lineup we’ve seen from the brand in years.” I don’t what she’s talking about because this season’s handbag line is terrible. Just take a look at the 8th handbag on the list.
What kind of handbag is that and who would pay $3,900 for it? I know that loungewear was a big thing during fashion week last September, but this is just ridiculous.
Scroll down even further and you’ll see some beautiful Box Bags in beautiful colors. Then you get to the 10th handbag and there’s yet another Pillow Bag, which is the official name of this ugly handbag. This collection has some good-looking bags in it, but it’s mostly ugly bags like this.
I don’t see many people carrying this handbag anytime soon. Even if a celebrity or street style blogger was paid to carry this bag, it wouldn’t sell. Though, there are some other ugly bags here that some might carry like the square bags and shoulder bags. These I could see street style bloggers wearing but I still don’t think I’d see celebrities wearing these. I think they’ll stick to their Birkins.
Also, if Céline wants to make a new silhouette, they should do the same thing they did with the Luggage Tote and make something new out of a classic style. The Luggage Tote is only a tote bag because its winged gussets make it a tote bag. If it didn’t have them, it would be a satchel. Céline should’ve done the same thing with another classic style this season. Céline also could’ve just released new styles with silhouettes it already has instead of releasing these ugly new ones.
So, what do you think? Are Céline’s new handbags ugly or do you like them? Let me know in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to get new posts sent directly to your inbox and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
