Celine Trapeze

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

More often than not, less is more, and simplicity with a touch of character highlights elegance!  Riding off the Luggage Tote’s success, Celine’s Trapeze Bag is another famous best seller featuring a sleek box flap with signature luggage wings.

As the luggage totes streamlined sister, the Trapeze is as functional as it is stylish.  The tote has a rectangular shape, fold over flap with a gold clasp closure, a handle resting on top of the front flap, and a long detachable shoulder strap.  It’s roomy enough to take with you to travel, but sleek enough for everyday use. 
Though it has a minimalist design, you can play with colors, materials, and textures to add more character and life to your bag!

If you’re planning on getting one, here’s a a few street style shots and quick brief on everything you need to know… 

Like all “it” bags these days, the Trapeze is offered in a selection of sizes:

Mini Trapeze:  11” W x 9” x 5” H
Medium Trapeze: 12” W x 9” x 6” H
Large Trapeze:  13”W x 10” x 7.5” D

Prices are ever changing…or should I say ever increasing.  Below are the latest prices, for the Trapeze, as of March 2015.  Please note, prices may change depending on materials, color combinations

Mini Trapeze:  $2550 - $2950
*Starting at $2050 for textile
*$2550 for suede with leather
*$2850 for all leather
*2950 for Croc Embossed

Medium Trapeze:  $2,950

I bought the black medium Croc Embossed Trapeze when it was first released in 2011 (visit post link).  Elegant, bold, and streamlined, it’s been one of my go to totes for almost everything.  The one minor setback is the top handle placement.  The handle is placed right over the front flap, making it difficult to access stuff in your bag.  When unzipping your bag with one free hand, it falls open, and you have to ensure your contents don’t slip out.  Nevertheless, this hasn’t held me back from frequently using the bag!
