Celine Vipiana named her eponymous brand after first name in 1945. The business began as a made-to-measure shoe service for children until the 1960s, when the designer developed her first line of leather good and accessories. It was only natural that the brand next launched a sportswear collection in 1968. From there, Celine came to stand for the idea of Parisian chic, with savoir-faire and the finest quality materials as pillars of the house.

With 140 stores worldwide today, Celine is a luxury French fashion house led by artistic director Hedi Slimane. The French designer and equally well-regarded photographer has created eye-catching collections through the ateliers at 16 Rue Vivienne – and collaborated with American artist Christian Marclay for his first Celine collection.

Celine’s new era handbag, The 16, has been toted by the likes of singer-actress Lady Gaga and actress Angelina Jolie. The ’60s-inspired bag was designed by Hedi Slimane, and is available in a myriad of colourways.

Combined with ready-to-wear and accessories, his 'haute-couture' designs showcase the meticulous possibilities of French craft within the Celine wardrobe.
