Céline's leather finesse translates to the season’s most covetable Tri-Fold handbag

Philophiles, revel. The new star bag from the French maison's fall 2016 collection has arrived. Crafted to be the everyday bag, the Tri-Fold echoes the French house's DNA: Wide gussets, long laces, and supple leather all put together in the pared-back spirit the label is favoured for.

Evoking the house's pure and minimal aesthetic, the sleek lines of this latest creation construct the graphic cut of
bord à bord wide panels of calfskin left as natural as possible. Lateral leather laces on both sides of the bag can be knotted together, transforming the bag into a squared silhouette. Just like its exterior, the Tri-Fold's interior is constructed meticulously, with each stitch sewn with the greatest care.

Generous in size, the leather bag is named after its three ample compartments. With two hidden flat pockets in the first and central sections, the season's key bag is marvellous in carrying all your daily essentials in one Céline-chic go. Available in a range of sublime autumnal colours of black, burgundy, brick, moss green and daffodil, the Tri-Fold is tipped to up your bag game at the same time too. Functional and Philo-approved? Yes, please.

The Céline fall 2016 Tri-Fold bags are available at Céline boutiques islandwide.
