The Céline Luggage Bag was first launched in 2009, and it has been incredibly successful. One sign of a bag's success is that it is spun into a whole range with different sizes and versions. This is precisely what has happened to the Luggage Bag, which is now available in this small Nano version as well as in a range of "Phantom" styles with a different gusset detail. Available in a range of colours and sizes - from truly huge to adorably dinky  -  there is a version of this designer handbag that will suit anyone's frame and wardrobe.

The Céline Nano Luggage Bag is the smallest size available, and it comes with a detachable strap that allows the handbag to be worn on the shoulder or across the body. For me, this seems like the most wearable version of the Céline Luggage Bag, as the larger sizes can be very heavy. I think that this is due to the fact that the Luggage Bag is an all-leather bag, featuring leather that feels thick and luxurious. In the larger Céline Luggage Bags, all of this leather begins to add up, and the empty bag begins to get quite heavy; once you add in all of your belongings, you end up toting around something that can be rather uncomfortable!

This is why I think that the Céline Nano Luggage Bag is like the Goldilocks version of this bag design; it offers all of that lovely high quality leather, in a size and weight that's practical for everyday use.

Although there are many captivating versions of the Céline Nano Luggage Bag, I really do love the version made from simple, all-black drummed leather. Without a loud colour to distract you, the bag's interesting design (made from twenty-five individual pieces of leather) takes centre stage. Plus, the drummed leather is much more durable than the smooth leather that Céline offers, as it is much less likely to become scratched or marked. Honestly, I think you would be hard pushed to find another handbag that is as good a choice for everyday wear.

The Céline Nano Luggage Bag features on large internal compartment, which allows you to fit a lot more than you might expect. This compartment is secured with a zip, making the bag very secure to use in a busy city or on public transport. When placed down, the Nano Luggage Bag has enough structure remain standing up-right and the leather base of the bag is protected by four metal studs. The interior of the bag is usually lined in the same colour as the exterior, so if you choose a dark coloured bag then the interior will also be unlikely to show any marks or stains. Overall, I think that it is a cleverly designed bag with an enduring appeal. It might have been around for a while, but Céline is still making this design and women everywhere continue to buy it.
