Minimalist and versatile
Celine in Singapore generally has quite a number of limited stuff but the bags there are always beautiful and of excellent quality. The popular luggage totes can be bought here but stocks are low on the Micro and Nano sizes. Even if they do have, the colors are limited as well. So do give the boutique a call before heading down. The renovated store looks much classier and clean with the jade marbling and clean lines. If you're venturing into Celine, I will recommend the Trio over the luggages and trapezes. The luggages are too heavy for me and I find the trapeze too bulky. I use my trio all the time so it's a really good investment. It's light! Their bags are not flight friendly though! Cos of the size, weight (calfksin and pebbled leather) and texture (lambskin ones in particular are fragile, hand carry it instead of chucking it into your luggage).
The staff there are helpful and friendly! When i was purchasing my Trio, the sales assistant took out all the stocks they have for the color I want and gave me time to choose the bag that was the most perfect looking! Because of the nature of lambskin, the bags do have slight creases here and there but I really love the clean and minimalist look of the lambskin coupled with the functional and smart design of the Trio. It's my go-to bag and costs much lesser than the luggages and trapezes as well! Highly recommended if you have the budget and are looking to get your first Celine piece :)
All hail Phoebe Philo
With the recent roaring success led by Phoebe Philo, it is no wonder that Celine is one of the hottest and popular designer labels at present. Getting one of the most coveted bags of the season proves harder than scoring A1s — you need tons of hard work, research and Lady Luck on your side.
Don't be fooled by numerous designs available in store — the Celine boutique is always out of the classic Luggage totes, but I have learnt that they merely keep those in the back reserved for a game of fastest fingers first. I was lucky to be able to secure something from the store, and for that, I feel forever indebted to them.
Celine at DFS Scotts is not run by FJ Benjamin, so even if you cannot get what you want from the boutique itself, you can always check out Celine at DFS Scotts.
