It was shocking for many to learn that Phoebe Philo is parting ways with Céline after almost a decade, but before she officially leaves the French brand, the designer has created something special that would have fashion enthusiasts obsess over.

Enter the custom Céline plastic bag.

First spotted at the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2018 runway show in Paris, the Céline logo plastic shopping bag will be available for purchase as a set with the brand’s leather clutches and oversized coin purses.

The bag seems to be made of a thick plastic made to mimic the look of a standard plastic bag. Featuring the label’s name in their classic font, the only other design marker is a warning label printed in four different languages, that reads: “To avoid danger as suffocation keep away this bag from babies and children.”

The iconic clear bag is definitely an investment piece — and a conversation item. Pair it with Balenciaga’s Arena tote, which upgraded IKEA’s $0.99 blue bag to a cool $2,145, or simply DIY one for yourself!

Ringing in at $750 (RM2929) each, the bag is scheduled to debut at a Céline x Nordstrom pop-up in Seattle in the US in May. It’s unclear if it will be available in Malaysia, but if it is, we’ll let you know.
