Celine Handbags & Purses

Famously simple, Céline specializes in capturing the mood of the season with understated elegance for modern women. With a quietly distinctive style, Céline handbags and purses don't draw attention to the wearer so much as prepare her for the real world she lives in.

Like its ready-to-wear clothes, which have fluid, contemporary silhouettes, Céline modernist handbags and purses are known for being tasteful and discreet. This is quite the opposite of most designer handbags, which do their best to stand out in a crowd.

Céline handbags tend to hold their value well on the second-hand market, providing devotees with yet another reason to love these chic statement pieces.


Quick Facts

  • In her first collection for Céline in 2009, Philo introduced three bag lines with a pared-down aesthetic—Cabas, Luggage, and Classic—that would form the foundation of the label. They were marked by subdued, logo-free designs and distinguished by their easily-recognizable shapes
  • In January 2014, Heritage Auctions sold a gently-used Céline luggage tote in black leather with silver hardware in its original dust bag for $2,750, just below its $3,000 original retail price
  • In 2015 on eBay, a new with tags Céline Phantom Luggage bag crafted of calfskin-lined bottle-green python skin sold for $4,500
