Celine Launches An Extreme Mini Nano Triomphe And It’s Selling For Only $8500!
Square Styles Are Leading is the This Year’s Bag Trends, With Celine Also Launching The Fang Fatzi
Across social media, apart from the frenzy around Gucci x Balenciaga sales in the first week, nothing compares to Chanel and Celine. Chanel’s new releases each season are always at the height of fashion discussions. With social media platforms finally displaying informative shopping details, the go to buys every season are common knowledge. Fashonistas can turn to social platforms for seasonal hidden styles. At a glance, Chanel hides nothing; where Celine only sells the most attractive products on its website every season. Following the Mini Ava introduced by the brand last time, the Nano Triomphe, launched during the Christmas period, catching everyone off guard.
Nano Triomphe by Celine, as the name suggests, is the nano version of the Triomphe Arc de Triomphe bag. The size resembles that of a wallet, offers a shoulder strap design, and same size buckle as the Arc de Triomphe, for an exquisite proportioned model. Triomphe is the brand’s evergreen model, with the new styles selling for at least HK$20,000 each season. The mini size currently has a 40% discount for only $8500!
Celine has rarely launched products similar to "Wallet On Chain". We are familiar with brands that release these styles, and it’s generally the super luxury brands like Hermes, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Dior. With that being said, the demand is still very much there, and Celine’s brand charm has the ability to transform its models into small wallet versions. An industry expert at one point stated that the capacity of the original Triomphe can barely meet daily needs, and the Nano version is barely practical. In picture (2) we can visualise the size difference between the normal and the Nano, and in picture (3) shared by users, bag capacity demonstrates that the pieces are quite crowded.
When you buy a mini bag, practicality is never your first thought and often its the aesthetics you’ll be desiring. With the Celine Nano Triomphe it is possible to remove the shoulder strap (Figure 3), should you want a clutch style look. For the mini bags, that's perfectly impractical, it is super easy to use, and it can be used as a wallet every day. With such an attractive price tag, what more could you want?
