The Celine mini bag is currently the IT designer bag to have. I currently do not own one in my personal collection, but after doing this bag review, that might change. Read on for the details of this bag, and for how it compares to the Celine micro bag.
I typically shy away from large bags, because they tend to overwhelm my small frame. But, the Celine Mini (that is not so mini) is one large bag that makes me a little weak in the knees. It's so darn modern and chic looking. And, the design makes it perfect for almost any occasion! It's versatile enough for the office and casual weekends.
Not all Celine minis have a structured frame. This one does. When I set it down on the table, it's just as beautiful as on my arm. The construction and quality is amazing, ensuring that this bag will stay beautiful after many many wears and years. The drummed calfskin leather is durable and not fragile. Even though the color of the bag is a light ivory, it's not easy to scuff or discolor. Handles are substantial and well constructed, so even if you carry often and a lot, there will be no concerns.
roughly 12 inches x 12 inches x 7 inches. These measurements do not include the side wings of the bag or handles.
The large size combined with impeccable construction make this bag perfect for those who like to carry a lot of stuff! Inside this bag is a camera, an outfit change, a pair of flats, a wallet, and phone; it's only half-way full! For rigid smooth or rigid drummed calfskin Celine luggage bags, no matter what is inside the bag, it keeps its shape well.
Celine mini bags have a top zipper for opening and closing. The zipper is very smooth, and the opening expands easily. This is a SUPER convenient bag. There will also be at least one side pocket inside and a small zippered pocket on the front of the bag. Hardly anyone uses the front pocket to store anything; it's more for looks.
The Celine micro (10 x 10 x 6 inches) is slightly smaller than the mini (12 x 12 x 7 inches). Because these are so close in size, many often wonder which bag is better for them. I'm 5 foot 6 inches; here they are on me for comparison.
