Céline bags have become extraordinarily popular within the past 2-3 years. It started with the luggage tote, which I thought may be the new Birkin, and now has expanded to include a myriad of iconic styles.
The luggage tote is still by far the most popular Céline style, coming in a wide range of sizes, colors, and fabrics. I see this bag being toted around by everyone in Manhattan. The bag is actually quite versatile. Below, I've shown how to use a large sized luggage tote 3 different ways:
Beach Bag: The large size luggage tote is perfect for a day at the beach, pool, or trip to Central Park. It fits a large towel, flip flops, bottle of water, and of course sunglasses.
School Bag: I have seen this bag all over campus and in many of my classes. It fits everything one needs for a day of classes: iPad, Notebooks, agenda, and even a MacBook Air. The bag itself does get a little heavy when loaded, since the bag itself is heavy, similar to a Birkin.
Everyday: The luggage tote is perfect for those who just toss anything and everything into their bag as it does not have many interior pockets. My large size fits a bottle of seltzer, umbrella, sunglasses, and moleskine. All things that have become essential during a summer day in the city!
It is important that a bag be versatile, especially when living in a city where some days it seems like you are packing up your entire apartment into your bag for the day! The Céline luggage tote is a perfect option.
