Here's the background story :
Girl walks into the Printemps department store, back in february 2012, stops by the Céline corner,
spots bag, her eyes fill up with stars,
holds up the bag, checks it inside and out,
plays model with it in front of mirrors as if a visual confirmation was necessary to assert the bag's gorgeousness,
at this point, girl is in love, raves about the sleek and casual elegance of the bag, how practical and cool it is,
girl checks the price tag,
the girl's heart sinks as she realizes that (legally) leaving the store with the bag will not be possible. Ever.
The girl comes back several times, checks the internet for more information about it, bag sells out and is not reissued, life goes on.
Still, the bag remains in the corner of the girl's mind.
10 months later, girl spots THE bag, second hand yet in perfect condition, at an affordable fraction of its original price and just when she got her end of the year bonus.
Girl gets herself a Christmas gift and to this day, the bag is very often part of her daily outfits.
Not the end of the girl's story with the Céline duffle for sure.
