I present you my current obsession – Céline’s Luggate Tote Mini! I’ve always had a lack of black purses due to my thinking that black bags often hide the detailing of the designs. But if I were to buy any black bag, this would absolutely be it! ❤
The Luggate Tote series came out in 2010, but it didn’t catch the public’s eyes until it was spotted on arms of celebrities. Once it became popular, of course it then became a more exclusive choice and grew considerably in price. Since then, certain styles have been discontinued (i.e. Medium and Shoulder size), but more styles and color combinations have been added to the line. As intimidating as the price tag may seem, it is a stylish and durable product with refined craftsmanship, a worthwhile investment you can proudly add to your designer collections.
As much as I love big bags, I believe the Mini size would suffice. But – don’t judge by what it sounds like, it isn’t that “mini” and a size Medium is actually so big! It also comes in smaller scales called Nano and Micro. I’m very fond of the unique shape and detailing of the Luggage Tote series, alongside their brilliant quality. I am tired of seeing the same black leather handbags that everyone carries (from MK, Coach or even Prada). Sometimes it takes a lot more than just creativity for a different style to trend in the market, so Céline has definitely done that right, although if I recall in terms of the big tote trend, Longchamp started it all.

Here are some outfit ideas. It’s as simple as rocking it with your basics, and it’ll turn your look up a notch.
On a side note, this is another style by Céline which I also thought was brilliant – Céline Trapeze, in black. It has less details than the luggage tote, but simplicity certainly has its merit.
What’s your favorite bag at the moment lovelies?
