The numeral name derives from the location of the brand’s headquarters and atelier in a 17th-century mansion at 16 Rue Vivienne, and the bag was designed by Hedi Slimane on the very first day of his arrival at Celine, the brand states.
Flaunting a sleek and curvaceous profile, the 16 boasts elements of some of Celine's most historic bags as it features a '60s-inspired top handle, cropped flap as well as rounded and belted details.
Composed out of the finest and most luxe leathers, the 16 will be available in three sizes and in a wide variety of colors beginning November 12. Pricing has not been revealed yet. For more info, head over to Celine's website.
