Minimalism is having a moment. If you’ve ever wondered how French women attain that je ne sais quoi Americans so desperately desire, it’s probably because the French fashion elite refuse to run around town in emoji jogger pants and ugly Christmas sweaters. Instead, they adhere to a more understated streamlined style of dressing that recently (finally) has made its way across the pond.
This spring, don simple silhouettes with minimal hardware. Consider black silk short rompers, white origami-inspired dresses, tailored button-down sleeveless tops, leather backpacks, simple gold jewelry, and of course, the French-born bag that has permeated the blogosphere for years (for good reason!)—the Celine Trio bag.
Former Chloé Design Director Phoebe Philo took over as Creative Director at Céline in 2008. During her residency, the Celine Trio Bag was introduced, and the style world hasn’t been the same since. For about four years, this sleek little sidekick has been effortlessly polishing looks for those tuned into the Minimalist trend. Yes, it’s an investment piece, but its versatility (unsnap each pouch to create three bags from one) and clean craftsmanship make it worth the splurge.
