Design powerhouse Celine was formed by husband-wife duo Robert and Celine Vipiana. With humble beginnings in 1945, they slowly grew in popularity and recognition for their made to measure goods. Personalities Princess Caroline and Prince Albert began to sport their designs and the brand quickly became recognisable.
From the 1950's they began to develop their range to include men and women's footwear, handbags and luxury goods.Their ready-to-wear collections were aimed at a 'middle class market' as opposed to just appealing to 'an elite few'. Fabrics like denim were used and sporty but feminine cuts were created with a simple idea in mind; the modern woman does not need fancy outfits, she needs chic clothes. Celine's ideas were a modern day fashion revolution - and with that she conquered the fashion market.
Following her focus on chic, wearable clothing, Celine focused her attention back to handbags, and in the 1970's her first signature bag was born - the C sulky canvas. The bag was an instant hit and Celine instantly became a household name. In 1999 Micheal Kors was appointed lead designer and creative director but left shortly after.
If you look in any windows currently, you may perhaps feel a sense of deja vu and see an ongoing trend of boxy, winged shape leather bags. This is in fact not a coincidence but the unmistakable influence of Celine's newest creative director and bag pioneer, Phoebe Philo. Perhaps the most iconic bags are the Trapeze and Phantom bags.
