I'm totally obsessed with this clutch:


I phoned all the Celine shops in NY and Paris and they acted like this clutch never even existed. Do I have any chance of ever finding one? Second hand would be fine... Please suggest reputable second hand shops that I should keep an eye on. Thanks!

I'm also in the market for this same pouch. Last that I have seen or heard intel is my friend spotted a few at the Céline store in Bangkok last year. This is a pretty old model and I don't think there was more made after Summer 2011.

I really hope Céline will reissue this style.

There was one on the Bay that ended for US$900 with change so I guess the demand for this is out there. The other online places I have seen these listed are on Yahoo Auctions Japan.

Thanks for the info, I guess this is an impossible find. Too bad.
Actually my dream bag would be a Trio with a removable strap. I could use inside a bigger bag as a bag organizer without the strap, and by itself with the strap when I go out at night.
Oh well, a girl can dream....

You know that the trio with strap can be converted to duo clutch with the snap apart pouches, right? Its almost the same thing :smile: I love using mine this way as a clutch sometimes.

Great idea. It's similar but totally different in the sense that the original design had a different zipper style. And made slightly smaller.

With the regular trio, I would rather fold the strap away nearly and use it as a clutch. Still can't capture the essence of the original trio clutch pouch. Oh well, I'm really hoping to find one soon. One can dream... Hehe.

Wow, cool! I didn't realize the snaps would allow this! I may just end up getting a Trio after all...

Barney's NYC on Madison Ave has both sizes of this triple zip... saw them last week (June 2013).

Actually I just noticed you mentioned 2 sizes... I think you are referring to the Trio with strap, which comes in regular and large. This triple clutch I was looking for (and was lucky enough to find second hand) had no straps and I believe only came in one size.
