The French brand Céline had been created in 1945 by Céline Vipiana. At the origins, the Maison was called “Céline, le bottier pour enfants”, specialized in custom-made shoes for kids giving them a dandy & trendy style. She set up boutiques in Paris, in rue Faubourg Saint Honoré and in 1960, the brand diversified & launched leather bag collections: many women are seduced.
A few years later, she decided to create a perfume & launched her first ready-to-wear collection and that was a major success, an other time.
At this time, the brand continued to rise all around the world exporting her products in foreign countries as Switzerland, Italy, Japan, Corea etc.
Today, Céline is in the most Luxury famous group all around the world : LVMH. The brand had very talented artistic director giving it a chic, feminine & modern style for women deeply rooted in their time.
Céline is well known for its wonderful leather bags. When the brand launched a new bag, it is immediately a success and it has the “it bag” status ! Who doesn’t know the iconic bag “Luggage” or the wonderful “Phantom” one? Or the chic “Trapèze” model? All stars well known all around the world wear Céline bags: Blake lively & Leighton Meester heroines of Gossip Girl, Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna… they don’t wanna leave their Céline bag !
