Celine Resort 2010

Gawd, I love this bag. The simple clean lines. The subtle top stitching. That very lovely deep tan colour. So inviting. And what looks like silver and gold on the buckle. So sophisticated. So expensive… Its the new oxygen…

It would look especially good on the two reigning queens of The Solid Purse: our Liz, Queen Elizabeth II and, posthumously, Joan Hickson’s Miss marple (R.I.P.) Yes, that would be the best branding excersise ever. H.R.H. Liz sporting this tempting piece of wrist candy. Wrap one up, press office and send it tout de suite to Buckingham Palace. Yes I’m aware that Celine is a French design house but think what it would do for franco-anglo public relations! I’m willing to wager that peace treaties could be signed if a good hand bag or two were involved in the process. Also, veritable Brit, Phoebe Philo, is at the helm as it were.

They wear it well, or would have…
