Celine’s two signature bag styles have had a fresh update for the Spring as part of the Spring/Summer 2020 collection, designed by Hedi Slimane. We discover more below.
This new bag design takes inspiration from the sixties, in particular, 1967 and a belt with a classic signature style from the Celine archive. At the time the belt was a staple of actresses including Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, Jane Fonda and Jacqueline Bizet and this modern interpretation is features a contemporary twist on the design as it is reimagined into a bag.
The name of the bag nods to Saint Tropez where the Celine woman has been taken for this season. “Camarat” comes from “Cap Camarat” a headland in the south of Saint Tropez, in the town of Ramatuelle. For the spring season, the bag comes in seasonal animations with special details including tan fringes and shearling.
CELINE MAILLON TRIOMPHE
The Maillon Triomphe was first introduced during the Winter 2019 show last year and it has been further developed for the Summer 2020 collection. It features a key signature design inspired by Celine archives including the House’s historic monogram which was first revealed in 1972. The monogram which has been reintroduced by Hedi Slimane is a link motif inspired by the chain encircling the iconic Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
This season the Maillon Triomphe comes in seasonal interpretations including with a scarf incorporated into the design and our favourite a floral jacquard style. The Maillon Triomphe revisits Slimane’s inspiration from the seventies which can be seen throughout the ready-to-wear collection.
