Review on Céline’s Trapeze Bag as seen with Sooyoung.

Many of Céline’s bags have long been overshadowed by the infamous ‘Luggage‘ tote. For those who want a ‘rarer’ and more exclusive bag yet still very practical, read on as Céline’s Trapeze might just be the bag for you.

The bag comes in either full leather or half canvas, half leather, or pony hair. Most usually opt for the bag to be in a mixture of both leathers, myself included, simply because it makes it somewhat lighter. The middle part of the bag where the flap is,  is usually in leather and the winged sides, which arguably Céline made famous, is in canvas. The bag also comes in a huge range of colour combinations. You can get in a solid one colour or you can have it bi-coloured or tri-coloured. My Trapeze is tri-coloured in burgundy, maroon, and in a light brownish grey. The bag comes in either silver hardware like Sooyoung’s, or gold hardware.

Made in Italy, the bag is very spacious, one of the most spacious bags I own. There is a long zip which stretches on until one of the winged sides when you open the bag. A flap in the inside of the bag which has two pockets, a narrow, vertical pocket and right next to it, a wider horizontal pocket sits nicely. At the bag of the back sits a zipped compartment. One of the best features featured in this particular bag is the removable shoulder strap. This allows the bag to be either a tote bag or a shoulder bag, courtesy of the removable strap!

Personally, I like to use this bag in areas where pick pocketing is very common. This is one of the ‘safest’ bags I own simply because it takes quite a bit of effort to open the bag. First, you have to flip the clasp down, twist the buckle horizontally to the correct side, and the bag finally opens! This feature of the bag has both its pros and cons as some might find it quite a bit of hassle. In my opinion, the bag is considerably light as compared to my Hermès bags. However, wearing the bag on the crook of my arm does ache after a while and also gives me red marks.

To be honest, I don’t quite remember how much I bought the bag for but a little bit of researching tells me I would have bought it for around $2600 in Fall 2013. As usual, Céline has marked up their prices now and as of May 2014, the Trapeze bag starts at $2950. The bag is quite expensive however I do prefer the Trapeze as compared to other similar priced bags like Saint Laurent’s Sac Du Jour Tote.

Rating: 4.5/5

Unfortunately, Céline does not sell it’s products online yet. Head on over to the official website to see the colours they offer for the Trapeze this season.
