Question - How long do you guys think the popularity of the Celine Box Bag will last?

I've been drooling over the blue one for months now but I'm having second thoughts cause as they are super expensive is this bag going to be as popular as it is now say 3/4 years from now. Will it become a house staple?

I have a Paddington which I love and would never get rid off but I never use it. It didn't become a classic like the Birkin or 2.55. You never see them anymore.

Is it worth taking the risk?

well, i think your grand children still can use this kind of bag...
btw, price tag is hilarious, i won't invest any of celine bags by phoebe, unless at outlet.
now, many high street labels have been doing "celine look like" bags without any logos, keep it quite simple.

I think the Box bag, in spite of its insane price is a safe bet because a bag like that never really goes out of style. Things like the Chanel Classic Flap or Hermes Constance are still going strong after all these years and I think the Box bag is cut from the same cloth so to speak. The design is chic, the construction is top notch and most importantly the bag itself is rather timeless. There is nothing about it that screams "this season's trend" even if you aren't familiar with the brand, I think you can appreciate the simple design. I can see someone wearing this for many years and even passing it down to their daughters.

It would be amazing to get it on sale though .

I still love my paddington. Actually I just saw a Japanese girl carrying a deep brown (?) Paddington in Paris last month. She looked soooo chic. I couldn't take my eyes off her.

that was my exact thought too, but they're both beautiful imo... i'd love an SC, but it's a bit too small for me.

i like the softened Luggage... but whats with those straps? same goes for the tote...

That silver bag is really cool (so is that suede luggage tote)! But yes, what is with those straps?

Do those Pre-Fall Box Bags have straps?

The baby blue one is calling out to me. Must resist.
