By now, we should be familiar with the Triomphe motif and its links to Hedi Slimane’s vision of CELINE. Refreshed from the archives of the French house, and originally inspired by the Parisian landmark, the Arc de Triomphe, Slimane still retains the timeless feel of the brand by incorporating the logo as minimalist hardware and subtle monogram, creating plenty of new classics. As for their latest Fall bag, the Teen Besace Triomphe, it lands comfortably within CELINE’s line of chic, understated bags.
The first form of the Besace Triomphe was unveiled as part of CELINE’s Summer 2022 collection, as the Chain Besace Triomphe, where the small bag was accompanied by a gold-finished chain.
For Fall 2022, its sleek-looking, compact silhouette now borrows a bit from CELINE’s Teen bag series, in smooth calfskin leather, and with rounded edges and an adjustable shoulder strap, which means you can sling it across the shoulder or wear it crossbody-style.
Inside, there are three functional compartments for your everyday essentials, including a zipped pocket and a flat one. Of course, the look is complete with a metallic Triomphe logo that acts as a closure for the bag’s top flap.
The CELINE Teen Besace Triomphe arrives in four colours in shiny calfskin, and two colours in high-end lizard versions.
