PRETTY COOL: Celine's Triomphe Canvas


— March 24, 2021 —

Celine's Triomphe Canvas bags know that age is just a number. With enough youthful energy to make you feel as if you are living in this video clip, but still every bit as sophisticated as you'd expect from the legacy fashion house, the bags are a fresh take on the traditional dark canvas pattern you've seen looped over pretty cool people's arms for years. 

To celebrate, we enlisted the help of our gal Imogen Wilson, who snapped new face Melissa wearing them in a lot of different ways (so versatile!) at the super luxe Sir Stamford in Circular Quay, Sydney. Let the above gallery reignite your love of handbags before you get to know Melissa better below.
