When former creative director of Celine resigned in 2018, Celine fans immediately questioned what they would wear in the future. But loyalty to the brand remained when new creative director Hedi Slimance injected new style, bourgeois and French street style to the bags. He improved the classic Box Bag by launching the Celine Triomphe series, which although differed greatly to the brand’s original look, was highly successful. With new youthful energy, the new signature style became the brands ‘cash cow’. In 2021, Celine introduced the Triomphe shoulder bag to the collection, taking part in the popular trend for underarm bags. The bag is unique in its long design, resembling the length of French bread for a little more character.

In comparison with Celine’s Classic Box bag, the Celine Triomphe Shoulder Bag has removed the folds of the “Stewardess Bag”, making it more concise in its structural design and chicer in appearance. The balance is proportional with its long strip design, perfectly sized buckle and flat body. Common amongst French handbags, the shoulder straps are sewn directly onto the bag, similar to that of the diagonal and moon bags. This bag may not have the elegance of the “Stewardess bag”, but it offers street rebellious energy in subtle contrast. It is Hedi Slimance’s key strength, holding a desire to bring all street things to the height of high fashion. The Triomphe, is just an example of one of his low-key staple revolutionised pieces.

Of course, if Blackpink member Lisa gives her stamp of approval for the new Celine bag, we know it’ll be an iconic piece. The Triomphe Shoulder Bag is edgy and can be worn casually and dressed down or dressed up to enhance a mediocre dress. Like Celine, many brands have jumped on the underarm bag trend, which in general is super versatile, and demonstrates street meets elegance.

The Celine Triomphe bag comes in different colours with black a super hot choice. However in recent years, earthy tones have stepped into the limelight, taking over as one of the most highly sought after neutral toned bag colours. Earthy tones have evolved, with brown tones the most popular amongst minimalism fans. The shade is expected to outwin black. So we say, act fast.

Whilst, black and brown are top of the list for the Triomphe, monogram is definitely having a fashion moment! The off-white and pink versions stand out, with off-white a top contender amongst neutral toned lovers. However, whilst it stands, the colour might not outtake rivals black and brown due to its weakened durability and light colour. If you’re spending more than 20,000 yuan (more expensive than the Gucci The Jackie 1961), then we don’t blame you for considering your colour options wisely.
