I’ve always been a Celine fan but when I saw Phoebe Philo’s debut in Paris a few years ago, I was hooked. While not everyone can carry off her clothes, the bags are another story. I have started my own collection which includes a buttery soft leather cabas which is fantastic for running around town or work.
Now I have my eye on their latest style – the Zip Around. I love the graphic shape but at the same time its so chic and screams luxe without looking over the top. It was inspired by a men’s portfolio but comes with a feminine chain strap. There are four sizes, including a clutch which fits in perfectly with this season’s trend for hand-sized bags. The soft lambskin is classic but I have my eye on the python in XL. Prices range from HK$12,500 to HK$20,500.
