You Have To See Celine’s Bag Of The Season

It is called the "Clasp" and it is the driving force behind the biggest bag trend of Spring/Summer 2017.

Of the many scrumptious bags we saw at Paris Fashion Week last season, the one that stood out the most was Celine’s giant tote bags. Not only did it comply with the biggest bag trend we spotted on the Spring/Summer 2017 runways – biggest in every sense of the word – it also came in so many different iterations at once, ensuring that the season had something for everyone.

The bag in question is called the Clasp, so named for the gold vintage-inspired snap clasp that seals the bag. There’s no fuss at all here. Just pure lines, simple leather, skinny straps for contrast and the gold clasp as the only embellishment. This is Phoebe Philo’s Celine, after all. She may have thrown in a pink cape and a boob-printed dress into the collection, but some house codes still remain.

The Clasp comes in three sizes – Medium, Cabas and Mini – and they’re all vastly different. The Cabas is the knee-grazing one we can’t shut up about, large enough to hold a weekend’s worth of clothes with space to spare. Its deliberate, awkward oversized-ness is what makes it so unique.

The Medium with its top handle is the lady of the lot, while the Mini is for the girl-on-the-go, not unlike Celine’s cult-favourite Trio bag. We characterise the bags, but if you’re obsessed as we are, you’ll find every rhyme and reason to get your hands on all three.
