After the success of the Trapeze it is evident that Celine are still searching for their next hit bag. They are throwing a curveball this season with their new Symmetrical bag. If you are anything like us, a bag needs to be both fictional and beautiful. We hate it when our totes are divine on the front, but a disaster on the back, so Celine has answered our prayers with a bag that is exactly the same on the back and the front!
Together with the Classic design, the Symmetrical is one of the smaller bags in the collection but holds its own due to a strong design. In keeping with Celine’s penchant for minimalism, the bag is sober and chic with a versatile shape that can be incorporated for both day and night. They have forgone a clasp is favour of a weighted top flap and a short top handle in favour of a long shoulder strap- perfect for festival season. It is available in tan, burgundy and black. The bag definitely doesn’t break boundaries design wise. It is pretty simple and we are predicting a slew of knockoffs to start popping up, but something can be said for the ingenious simplicity that makes it so versatile, and that is what Celine do so well. Pair it with a floaty summer dress and a pair of leather flats and you have your bohemian summer wardrobe sorted.
