Celine, Celine & more Celine @ Christine boutique

So here is the post I've been dying to share with you. Part 2 from my little outing to Christine boutique last week.  The store was literally shrouded in Celine bags, purses, clutches, iPad cases etc. You name it. All freshly unpacked or in the process of getting unpacked so bare that in mind with them covering counter tops and not being laid out for display as they normally would be.  



In all honestly, if Celine made it in a leather goods item, it was there.  I was shocked to see some of the rarer, most sought after bags such as the Phantom Luggage with the orange trim, the fluro coloured hues in the Mini Luggage and Nano, the Trio bags, the two-tone clutches, and a particularly striking cobalt blue Trapeze (along with many many others).  Just from personally searching the market for Celine, I know how hard some of the formerly mentioned items are to come by.  Of course there were ample other Celine items, but those were the ones that drew my eye.  There was so much to look at a woman could easily become a victim of whiplash.  I've never seen so much Celine in one place, even when in London.

So here are a heap of images from my 'kid in the candy store' shopping jaunt last week.  Once again, thank you so much to the lovely ladies who permitted me to photograph these to share.

I actually went back to Christine just a few days ago and I have to say, there are so many Celine styles and colours I missed photographing.  Argh! Such a shame. But I'm sure these are enticing enough in themselves.

    1. I feel pressure to make sure I pick the one I love the most which is difficult when you've narrowed it down to 10 bags and can only have 1 he he... I'm loving your blog Rose! xx

    1. It's a double edged sword with Christine. So many options and to die for items yet it's pretty impossible to leave without buying something. I'll send you an email about the ads xx

      Where can you see the look book for coming stock?

    3. When you go in to the store, just ask them if they have pictures of what they have ordered in the Celine bags and if you can see them :) The book isn't out, it is their order book. I asked if they had pic's as I was after a particular bag. They are getting some amazing bags and a really good range from the collection.

    Hi mandi,

    How much was it roughly for a mini luggage? In cow skin and also in tri colour and plush hard leather :S I just went to Paris and they only had medium luggage, been through Zurich and Geneva but no success although Zurich has a black with yellow cow hide, hot for winter but not for summer, I'm off to Italy next and worse case scenario I'll fly to Melbourne if I don't get any success xxx please let me know when you can... Thank you :) Loren!

    1. Hey Loren,

      The mini luggage at Christine Boutique are approximately $2,500 Australian but at other places (ie. David Jones they are higher).

      I know that Christine Boutique just got a delivery of Celine stock because I got notified yesterday. I would recommend you drop them an email directly to ask what they have. This is their email: christine.accessories@gmail.com

      I hope you find one. They are truly gorgeous!

      xx Mandi

    1. Hi, From memory it was around $2,500 (but don't quote me as I'm trying to recall from March). I don't believe that bag is there anymore though. It's worth dropping in to see what they have and you can ask what they are getting soon. They are really lovely and helpful at Christine. You can also go on a list to be notified when new Celine arrives :)

    3. Ooh... nice! Just go to the counter and ask them to take your details so you can be notified when new Celine comes in. They send an sms message :)
