France spent last year celebrating “The Year of China in France”; Now China has turned the tables by declaring 2005 “The Year of France in China.” Sharing in all this cross-continental amour, esteemed French accessories house Celine has produced two exquisite handbags inspired by this cultural exchange. While last year’s Boogie Bonheur bag featured hand painted lotuses and Chinese calligraphy, this year’s L’Imperial bag is a study in Napoleonic style. Made of rich leather trimmed in royal blue topstitching and complimented with a strap of braided silver and brushed metals, L’imperial is fashioned after the uniforms worn by Napoleon’s soldiers. The brilliant blue silk sash adorning the front of the bag is a nod to the hats worn by the famous emperor’s Imperial Marshals. The ultimate embodiment of the Napoleonic Era ideals of graciousness, high-standards, mastery, and quality, L’Imperial is a fitting addition to the House of Celine. Only 130 L’Imperial bags will be produced, ensuring it’s status as a collector’s item. Look for it exclusively at Celine stores this October.


Celine develops a different kind of Napoleon complex with L’Imperial. You can find other luxe goods by Celine at eLUXURY.com.
