The name of Celine's iconic 16, comes from the Maison de Couture's Paris address, The Hotel Colbert, at 16, rue Vivienne in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris. The 16 was designed by Hedi Slimane on the first day of his arrival at Celine. A design that is based on the very parisian way of wearing a bag. The 16 recaptures the codes of some of the maison Celine's historic bags, featuring specific 60's details such as the cropped flap as well as rounded and belted effects. The finest skins have been chosen for this new Celine classic, including the most beautiful exotic leathers.
For Spring 21, Celine introduces the Celine strap, a removable wool strap with a smooth leather trim and two "Celine" engraved hooks. The Celine strap is available in two sizes ( short 45cm drop, long 52 cm drop) and in a variety of colors and combinations for the Celine 16 leather goods family: small, medium, large and bucket. The Celine strap is versatile and can be worn on your shoulder or across your body.
