Peter Do X Medea Bag Is The Perfect Replacement For Your Old Celine!
Love Celine And Fancy An Upgrade Without The Pricetag? We’ve Found The Best Replacement At Half The Cost!
With the rise in use of monograms by brands and the departure of Old Celine, it is proving harder and harder to find good handbags for simplicity lovers. Whilst the second-hand market may cater to Celine fans offering rare vintage finds, other high end brands like Bottega Veneta and Jil Sander have become some of the only substitutes for the Old Celine, albeit significantly differing in style.
But don’t fret just yet, Peter Do, an independent designer from the Old Celine Alumni Association, has collaborated with handbag brand Mallea to launch a minimalist handbag design this season. Often referred to as Phoebe Philo, master of simplicity, his first series boasts everything we could have imagined. Known for minimal designs, his work has grown in popularity and fame over the years. The collaboration hosts benefits for Medea exposing the brand to a wider fashion audience. The multi-ride handbag, in collaboration with a niche brand consists of 3 handbag designs, the Evening mini bag with belt, available in beige and black, the white Tote bag- Airport, and the crocodile leather baguette.
The most surprising thing is the price of handbags, unlike a Celine piece, these beauties will set you back between 8,000 to 10,000 Hong Kong dollars. It’s a limited multi-purpose offering, and a fantastic valuable investment in our eyes!
As we know, a bag can really be a girl’s best friend and whilst you may rock up in Uniqlo, this bag will set the tone and be the driving force for your total Celine look. Bags are the necessary accessory and golden rule to any outfit.
And if this is the first you’ve heard of Peter Do, it certainly won’t be the last. With nominations for the CFDA Emerging Designer Award and listings in independent designer brands such as Staud, Reese Cooper, Christopher John Rogers, Kenneth Nicholson and a finalist in 2020 of the LVMH Young Designer Award, we know this designer is one to watch. Can he replace Phoebe Philo himself? We can’t wait to find out.
