As part of the house’s upcoming fifth session of their “La Collection Des Grands Classiques” line for Fall 2022, Hedi Slimane is bringing back a viral classic and introducing a new staple. First debuting back in 2018 on the arms of the one and only Lady Gaga, officially marking a new creative chapter for the beloved French fashion label under Slimane’s transformative eye, the 16 handbag now arrives in an adorable, new shrunken mini size.

Having been named after the Maison de couture’s Paris address, the Hôtel Colbert de Torcy at 16 rue Vivienne, the petite carryall with its cropped flap top and belted details crafted in a satinated calfskin fully transforms into the latest covetable evening bag of the season–the perfect size to fit your lipstick, black Amex card, and a cigarette or two (only the necessities!). Need an option with a little more wiggle room? Meet the Triomphe Bucket.

Continuing Celine’s focus on refined accessories for the everyday woman, the new bag featuring a decorative metallic logo plaque emblazoned on the house’s sumptuous staple calfskin leather offers a hyper-focused look on excellence in quality and the necessity of functionality with its multi-way use of hand or shoulder carry–exemplifying the true French way of wearing a bag, with ease and grace.

As trendy it-bags come and go with each quarterly fashion period, the “16” and Triomphe Bucket are truly style treasures that are here to stay and stand the test of time.
