My Current Obsession – The Céline Boston Tote
By OMB!’s Amy.
I’m in love…with a handbag (again). The Céline Boston Tote is the perfect bag. Phoebe Philo – the mastermind behind the Chloé Paddington – first presented the tote at the Céline S/S 2010 show. The bag was an instant hit with fashion editors and celebrities alike.

The Boston Tote is structured, oversized and modern. But the tote is still simple in shape. Some critics have stated that Philo’s creation looks like a robot’s face. Yet, this adds to be appeal for me. This self-confessed accessories lover genuinely thinks it looks cute.
Céline have since realised the tote in five sizes, which all come in a variety of colours and fabrics – from blue suede to leopard print.
The only downside – this bag isn’t cheap or even vaguely affordable. The price tag for the medium tote is around £1400. My new savings account a.k.a. ‘The Céline Boston Tote Fund’ has been opened…only £1100 more to go before this bad boy is mine…sigh.
