^Totally.

Though my personal favourite remains the black leather box. The golden clasp just stands out so beautifully it isn't true. It's odds-on the box will be my next purchase. Anyone know the price of the box (small and medium) in Europe?

The other bags disappoint, though. The Luggage, Phantom, Trapeze and Box are in all likelihood future classics, but none of the other bags even look vaguely interesting, let alone outstanding.

pavonine the medium box in europe is 2450€ (2048,49€ excl.VAT) that is based on few weeks ago if there's no more price increase. good price though compared to 3800$ in US
get the box, it's just too beautiful. i just got mine few weeks ago and i love it!!!!

are the cabas the unlined leather ones pictured in the pic 7-9 on the last page? my old coworker had one and I was wondering if any of you could give me some input on them. I need a new handbag and I've always liked Celine

kepris.com sells the luggage online, but it is usually more than retail...

pavonine congratulation on the trapeze!!! it's beautiful!

IsabelMarantBoy, i don't know which picture you mean as there's quite a lot of posts with photos on the previous page but cabas is just a simple tote bag with unlined leather. there's the horizontal, vertical, and zipper version. i like how it looks but i don't personally want to own it as it looks too simple for my taste

Gorgeous Trapeze pavonine!
Very striking color combination!

What do you guys think of the Celine Diamond bag? I was at Printemps the other day and I saw it - quite liked it but wasn't sure if it would be a good purchase...

Thanks guys.

@ Luxx - I think the bag can be used as a clutch as well, right? Personally, I think it's an GREAT clutch, but as a bag I'm not sure. It can't quite be used a workhorse, and it isn't quite as eye-catching as the box for an evening bag either.

Besides, I can't quite see this having much of a resale value. So it's not quite an 'investment' bag per se, but hey, if you really like it, I don't see why you should let anything deter you.

My only concern is really how much use I'd get out of the bag. I'm deciding between this and Trapeze right now - I really wanted a Trapeze but I can't seem to find a color combination I want to own. The winter trapeze colors are nice but I don't see anything in the shops yet that is calling my name.

Which kind of bums me out since I really wanted to get a Celine while I was here.

Luxx, the diamond bag is quite catchy but i don;'t know why even when i see it in the store i'm not even feel like touching or trying it on.
the colour combo is just too playful to me, and for that shape/stylelike i still prefer the box
i don't know the price but with the celine tag on it, i don't think that bag is worth the buy.
but that's me, if you really like it, and tried it on and you think you can use it a lot then you should go for it.
