Simple and Charming: The Celine Box Bag

Long story short: Celine knows how to produce some stellar handbags.

The french fashion house is single-handedly responsible for many cult favorites and a few standout “it-bags”.  The Luggage Tote has reached legendary status, and the Celine Trapeze and Phantom bags are rising to the ranks as well.

Today, PurseBop is highlighting another Celine star: The Celine Box Bag.

Features

The Box Bag hits a lot of PurseBop’s fall trend checkmarks. Above all though, the Box bag is timelessly elegant and a perfect addition to any collection.

The Celine Box bag lives up it its name and is highly structured with a rigid, rectangular silhouette. The hard body appearance gives the bag a vintage, retro charm (kind of like another PurseBop favorite – The Louis Vuitton Dora Tote).  The most defining feature of the Box bag is the unique push tab closure in the center of the bag. Although the bag is very minimalistic and classically understated, the hardware closure dresses up the whole aesthetic.

As far as the interior, the bag opens up almost like an accordion and has several different compartments.  To help you stay even more organized, there is a zippered slot for smaller items. Currently available in two sizes, small (7″ W x 5″ H x 3″ D) and medium (9″ W x 8″ H x 3.5″ D), you will have space to carry a considerable amount of essentials if you aren’t ready to dive into the mini bag craze yet. The Celine box bag also features a detachable strap that can be adjusted to two different lengths.
