The luxury French fashion house, Celine has recently increased the prices of some of their most popular bags – here are all the important details on the latest Celine Price Increase.
Celine is one of the top French luxury brands, known for the sophisticated, minimalist Parisian chic style in their ready-to-wear collections and handbags. The handbags from Celine are particularly popular, with sleek designs available in leather or the house of Celine monogrammed canvas.
This French brand has changed over the years as Hedi Slimane stepped into the role of creative director after Phoebe Philo. Under the creative direction of Phoebe Philo, Celine was known for a modern, refined style and the seasons it bags, in particular the Celine Luggage tote. Now with Hedi Slimane in charge, the brand has a darker, edgier aesthetic.
If you have your eye on a Celine bag or are just a handbag lover, you may be wondering what bags have recently changed in price. Well, you are in the right place, as we have all the information you need to know about the most recent Celine price increase in the spring of 2023.
Spring 2023 Celine price increase
This is Celine’s first price increase in 2023, which has seen almost all of their most popular bags hiked by $100-$500, or around 4-8%, depending on the bag. The biggest price hike that we’ve recorded happened with the brand’s Cabas Phantom bags, which increased by up to 24%!
Some of Celine’s bags had already experienced a price hike earlier in 2022 – for example, the popular Triomphe line saw an increase of 7-15% in May 2022.
With this said, not all of the bags in the Celine collection have been affected by the price increase, and each Celine bag has increased by a different margin.

Why Was there a price increase?
Every year, luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Saint Laurent, and Christian Dior will increase their prices to reflect rising prices in other areas. However, the price increases in the last few years have been a little higher than in other years – this is because of the ongoing health crisis, global inflation, and the rising cost of raw materials and production.
Many brands are increasing their prices more to reach the same number of sales as the pre-pandemic levels, since the number of people buying luxury goods, in particular, decreased during Covid. The steep rise in production manufacturing costs has also caused a more dramatic price increase than usual.

1. Triomphe bags
If you are looking for a stunning shoulder bag that can easily go from day to night, then the Triomphe shoulder bag is perfect for you! This bag has a simple rectangular silhouette and is decorated with a large CC Celine logo in gleaming gold to add a touch more glam.
The leather shoulder strap is adjustable so the bag can be worn across the body or slung over your shoulder. The Triomphe is available in different colors and materials – as you can see above.
We love the timeless classic look of this glossy black calfskin Triomphe, this is the ideal option if you are looking for a bag that will work during the day but is still smart enough for dinner out. Or, go for the Celine monogrammed canvas, as seen here in white with a tan leather strap, which has a more relaxed, casual look.
2. Luggage Tote
The Luggage bag is one of the most popular Celine handbags with an elegant exterior and spacious interior – ideal for both work and the weekend. The Luggage tote has an instantly recognizable trapeze shape with expandable sides that mean you can fit all your essentials inside.
The Luggage bag is fitted with rolled leather top handles and a longer, detachable shoulder strap so you can wear this bag in several different ways. The Luggage bag is also available in many sizes and colors so you can pick the option that best suits your style.
We love the Nano size as an everyday handbag, and this taupe color with the contrasting white topstitching is so versatile. This bi-color black and white edition, made from luxuriously smooth calfskin, is really striking and bold, yet will still suit a wide range of outfits.
3. Belt Bag
The Celine Belt Bag is another iconic designer handbag from this French fashion house because of its chic and sophisticated look.
The Belt Bag has a minimalist aesthetic with a front flap secured with a knotted belt, a leather top handle, and a long shoulder strap so this bag can be worn across the body. The interior is lined with suede and fitted with a patch pocket to help you stay organized.
The Belt Bag again comes in different sizes, Micro as seen here in pale blue – perfect to add a pop of color to your look – or Nano, as pictured above in black. The Nano option is the ideal size for an everyday handbag, while the color will suit any outfit; the Micro will give you a little more room for your daily essentials.
