Another Addition to My Growing Céline Collection

Céline FW13 Trapèze in Ink, Navy, and Indigo Smooth Calfskin and Lambskin

YAY! New and just in boutiques! I’ve sort of liked the Trapèze model but always hesitated because I think it might be a little too big for me? and I never found a color combo that I liked. I mean most were nice, but nothing really suited my wardrobe with the colorblocking effect, there was always one color that didn’t work with me. However, when I saw this color combo, I knew it was perfect! Not exactly colorblocking because they’re all in the same blue color family, which really works for me as I wear a lot of blue and cool tones. FYI: It’s 100% calfskin on the outside, and 100% lambskin on the inside!

As beautiful as this bag is, I’m afraid that I’m developing some aversion to the clasp. This is quite distressing because it’s very difficult to get into and out of the bag! Everytime I need to access the bag, there are multiple steps: (1) stabilize bag either on surface or rest it on my body/leg, (2) push down top clasp, (3) unscrew interior lock from vertical to horizontal position, (4) lift flap, (5) unzip interior zipper, and then do all steps backwards now to close the bag. This is a total of 10 STEPS!!! If I leave the interior unzipped, then I still have 8 steps to go through!!! How very irritating for a person like me who gets impatient so easily lol! Ughhh… I think I’ll need some time to adjust to the clasp… Another thing is that I’m surprised that for brand new hardware, there are already scratches? Maybe it’s just the way it is, but I prefer all metal parts to be very polished and shiny…
