Celine House launches for the first time a collection dedicated to Ramadan 2023, limited to bags and jewelry
Celine launched for the first time a collection dedicated to Ramadan 2023, limited to bags and jewelry, and the main focus was on Triomphe designs. In this Ramadan collection, you will find, for example, the Teen Chain Besace Triomphe bag and gold Triomphe Dangling Earrings. This is in addition to other designs such as the Chain Shoulder Bag Matelassé Monochrome Celine, the Mini 16 bag, and others.
Usually, the iconic Triomphe design appears in every collection, whether through leather goods, accessories, jewelry or even ready-to-wear. A revival of the day bag design, the Triomphe is crafted by Celine's own skilled leathermakers who have not hesitated to uphold the traditions of the craft. The bag is sized for everyday use and is equipped with a strap that allows it to be carried as a cross-body or as a shoulder bag. With its accordion design and interior zip pocket, this bag offers just the right amount of space for a woman's everyday essentials. On the inside, the word Triomphe is engraved in gold letters.
When Hedi Slimane joined the house, he perused Celine's archives, focusing on the 1970s. From that golden age, he drew initial inspiration from the spirit of that era and the unique logo designed by Céline Vipiana, the House's founder. As for the unique design of the house, it was born when Céline Vipiana got out of her car as a result of a minor accident in the Place de L’etoile, and noticed that the chain surrounding the Arc de Triomphe resembled two letters “C” in opposite directions. For Hedi Slimane, choosing this logo and naming it Triomphe in honor of Céline Vipiana has become a symbol of renewal and a signature for which the house is famous. After that, he gave the name Triomphe to the bag, which is characterized by its lock, which for the first time included the two letters “C” in contrast.
