10 Most Popular Celine Bags

For over 70 years the French luxury house Celine has been producing breathtakingly glamorous designer handbags of the utmost quality.

The most popular Celine handbags blend attention-grabbing lines with timeless style and modern practicality.

Celine and Richard Vipiana founded the brand in 1945 as a maker of made-to-measure children’s shoes. They moved into women’s fashion and leather accessories, including bags and gloves, in the late 1960s. 

Handbags soon became the most popular and sought after Celine product. They are functional, beautiful and often represent highly desirable starter investment pieces for the fashion-conscious.

10 Stylish Celine Bags Reviewed

We review 10 of the most popular Celine handbags with added wow-factor that every girl needs to stand out from the crowd.

1. Celine Ava Bag

Celine Ava Bag

Review

Made of signature ‘Triomphe Canvas’ and trimmed with calfskin leather, the AVA bag is an up-to-date take on the classic baguette bag. Of course, the Triomphe canvas itself is a signature design for Celine, based on the couture houses historic monogram, first used in 1972.

The elegant silhouette of this bag is genuinely charming. All of the decoration of this striking bag is in the fabric itself. This keeps the bags overall silhouette clean and tidy, letting the flowing lines speak for themselves. 

With a contemporary black/tan colour scheme, this is a versatile day-to-day bag that can also be taken to semi-formal events and outings. The classic baguette bag started life in the early 2000s and briefly fell out of favour, but now I feel its back with a vengeance.

The tan shoulder strap can be adjusted, but this bag is meant to be held securely under the arm, as all baguette bags are. The interior is compact and has one flat pocket for cards or small valuables safe. Of course, the AVA bag is not a work bag but rather a bag for casual events and days-out.

2. Celine Triomphe Bag

CelineTriomphe Bag

Review

Here is another fine example of textile meets leather design which is so prevalent from Celine. The Triomphe bag features beautiful grey fabric trimmed with snake-effect leather and lined with soft, supple lambskin. 

These neutral, classic materials and colours are beautifully contrasted by the gold-metal Triomphe logo decoration, which is a part of the closing mechanism.

The calfskin interior is split into compartments and contains a single zipped pocket, making it far easier to keep small valuables, cash, and cards separate and safe.

This rectangular bag is relatively dainty, so not necessarily suited to daily use as a work bag. However, with its adjustable shoulder strap and organised interior, it makes a perfect bag for casual outings and events.

3. Celine 16 Bag

Celine 16 Bag

Review

With its quirky, unusual silhouette, flowing lines, and rigid structure, the 16 bag is a stylish and thoroughly functional bag despite its small stature.

High-quality baby pink calfskin leather makes up the body. This leather is soft, supple, and incredibly beautiful. The gold metal hardware and twist-lock fastening mechanism provide some contrasting bling.

This bag has both a top handle and an adjustable shoulder strap, making it easy to use in every possible situation. The lambskin interior is relatively compact but capable of carrying the essentials (phone, wallet, keys, etc.).

As well as a flat pocket, there is an inner zipped pocket and two internal compartments. In short, this is a stunning and unashamedly feminine work bag for people who like to make a statement while still being practical.

4. Celine Boston Bag

Celine Boston Bag

Review

A brave and uniquely beautiful foray into the recent trend for mini bags, this mini Boston bag is almost too cute to be real. It looks rather like a dolls handbag with its somewhat oversized top-handles.

This bag has high-quality tan calfskin leather handles and piping. The body is made with signature cream Triomphe textile and includes an eye-catching connecting chain. The classic Triomphe logo (which is so connected to the history of Celine as a brand) is repeated in shades of pink. This bag has high-quality tan calfskin leather handles and piping.

The dainty interior of this bag is also lined with textile and is not split into compartments. After all, there would really be no reason to separate the inside of this bag – as it is a mini. Finally, there is a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap for ease of use.

5. Celine Pico Belt Bag

Celine  Pico Belt Bag

Review

Modern, bold, and incredibly beautiful, the Pico Belt bag is one of the most popular Celine collection designs right now. The tapering silhouette, flap closure, and removable leather strap steer this design away from the classically feminine designs that the brand usually favours. 

For a start, the grained calfskin is a little more durable and bold than the embroidered canvas or smooth calfskin or lambskin, which they usually use.

I found that the panels of leather and gold hardware attachments that hold the leather strap are a little bulkier than those seen on other designs on this list. 

The interior of this bag is protected by a zipper and closing flap. It is big enough to carry all of your essentials. In fact, this is the quintessential workday bag for modern women who like to make a subtle statement every day.

6. Celine Classic Bag

Celine  Classic Bag

Review

While this is called the Classic bag, it has a striking and slightly off-beat appearance that perfectly attracts the eye. The lizard skin effect on the body is stunning and gives a look of texture that is inviting to the touch and calls upon you to run your fingers across it. 

The bold contrast made by the square, gold metal fastening mechanism adds some welcome sparkle. An adjustable lizard-effect strap with gold metal hardware adds a pop of colour. I feel this really elevates the look. 

The rigid, durable body has clean lines and soft corners, while the inside of the bag has a zipped pocket for cash, cards, and other small valuables. 

This is a practical but dainty bag with an undeniably feminine appeal suitable for the modern, sophisticated woman—a bag for casual outings and events.

7. Celine Micro Luggage Handbag

Celine  Micro Luggage Handbag

Review

Throwing aside the simplicity and ‘clean’ silhouettes which are so common in Celine designs, the Micro Luggage handbag balances classic features with the most up-to-date. 

Although a cream/tan colour scheme is traditionally more professional (and beautiful), the shapes involved in this bag really captivate the imagination. 

The cream fabric that makes up the protruding sides and main body of this bag contrasts beautifully with the tan leather edges, which frames the bag nicely.

The rigid top handles give this a traditional and formal look that makes it perfect for the workplace or fancy shopping trips. The inner and outer zipped pockets add a layer of organisations to this bag.

A little too formal for evenings on the town or parties, but otherwise versatile, this is a bag that stands tall and demands attention. I found that the only real drawback is the lack of a shoulder strap; if you don’t like to carry your bag in hand, this may not be the design for you.

8. Celine Cabas Folded Bag

Celine  Cabas Folded Bag

Review

And now for one of the most iconic Celine designs on this list. If you want a bag that embodies the simple and crisp beauty of modern, minimalist design, the Cabas Folded bag is for you. , 

The taupe leather body creates simple, clean lines that make up the simple silhouette. This is an ideal professional or every-day bag. The extendable panels on the side make it a remarkably versatile day-to-day handbag.

Matching leather top handles complete the look beautiful. There is an adjustable long leather strap (which is also detachable), allowing the bag to be carried over the shoulder or even across the body. 

This is a versatile and durable handbag as well as an innately beautiful one. To my surprise, this bag’s large interior can be further expanded to make sure that you can fit in all of your necessities, plus the kitchen sink!

9. Celine Besace 16 Bag

Celine  Besace 16 Bag

Review

Somewhat reminiscent of the classic Dior ‘Saddlebag’ design, this half-moon shaped bag is made of smooth leather panels coloured in a buttery yellow that really shines.

The panels border the bag’s main body and create a seam down the middle and closing flap. At the centre of it all is a simple, gold metal twist-lock fastening mechanism. This bag has a cohesively pretty, feminine, and vibrant feel to it.

A single leather shoulder strap is adjustable and long enough to allow the bag to be carried over the shoulder and across the body. This is a somewhat dainty bag that will make a stunning addition to any casual or more dressy outfit.

Of course, it has more than enough space for all of your necessities and day to day essentials. If, like me, you are sometimes rather unorganised, there are inner credit card slots and an outer flat pocket to help you keep yourself well-ordered.

19 x 17 x 6 cm

10. Celine Patapans Bag

 Celine Patapans Bag

Review

Made from signature Triomphe canvas, trimmed with tan calfskin leather, and lined with high-quality textile to ensures this Patapans bag is high-quality and beautiful.

The rectangular silhouette and slim proportions give this a sporty and casual feel that is as alluring as it is bold. The gold metal hardware and chain handle dress this bag up nicely, providing a touch of sparkle.

A single strip of tan leather circles the bag and has an embossed Celine logo which is quite simply the icing on the cake. The interior is not segmented, but there is one inner zipped pocket and one outer flat pocket to help keep your belongings safe and organised.

The result is a compact bag made from stunning materials and finished to the highest possible level. The added bling from the chain handle makes this beauty more than just one for the office. Think glam shopping trips and weekends away.
