Lady Gaga made waves in Paris with Hedi Slimane’s first bag for Celine, and now, that piece has been officially introduced as the 16. This will be the first bag launched at the revamped French Maison Celine. The bag in question is the 16 bag, which according to the press release was what Hedi Slimane designed on his very first day of work.
Taking inspiration from Celine’s archive bags, flaunting a sleek and curvaceous profile, the 16 boasts elements of some of Celine’s most historic bags as it features a ’60s-inspired top handle, cropped flap as well as rounded and belted details. The numeral name derives from the location of the maison’s Parisian headquarters and atelier in a 17th-century mansion at 16 Rue Vivienne
Composed out of the finest and most luxe leathers, the 16 will be available in three sizes and in a wide variety of colors beginning November 12. Pricing has not been revealed yet. For more info, head over to Celine’s website.
