In time for their Winter ’15 collection, Céline’s classic Trotteur gets a subtle yet significant update with new closure. The original saddle-inspired version is overtly simple, almost completely free of metal details. This new variation on the closure changes the bag completely, just the way our accessories can change the connotation of our outfits.
To be honest, this is a bag I didn’t give much thought to last season. But now? It’s more than worthy of our attention. Just look at it on actress Li Bing Bing. The bold hue punctuates her otherwise monochrome white outfit, and the glistening bit of gold quietly mirrors her pendant necklace. It just goes to show less can be more, and a small switch-up can make all the difference. Céline Trotteur Bag available in mini, $2,200, and medium, $2,650
Actually, I often think of gleaming hardware as the equivalent of jewels for a bag. The right necklace or pair of earrings brighten up our look, and so does the spanking-new touch of shine on the Trotteur.
