Hi, i attached a photo, is this the Celine Sangle Seau bag you are referring to? If so i absolutely love this bag. It is so minimalist and very Celine. I am a big fan of goatskin bags as they are very durable, so if you are a person who would freak out about scratches then definitely get the goatskin.
I personally prefer the Celine Sangle Seau in smooth leather, as i am pretty careful with my bags and a few little scratches here and there wouldn't bother me one bit. Personally, i think you should get the Sangle Seau in a color, black is a bit common. The bag comes in a lot of lovely but nuetral colors which make the minimalist style of the bag stand out a little bit more. I like the bag in grey, Khaki and tan brown.
