Good news for those of you still pining for the Phoebe Philo era of Celine — especially if you've been forlornly scrolling through the @oldceline Instagram account, after Hedi Slimane's debut for the French fashion house in September. The only e-commerce website licensed to sell Celine products, 24 Sévres, just added a ton of #OldCeline.
The site is a byproduct of Parisian luxury retailer Le Bon Marché's recent acquisition by conglomerate LVMH, which aims to bring the department store into the 21st century. It offers a curated selection of premium goods, from classics like Chloe and Courreges, to more sportswear-oriented labels, like Nike and Yeezy, delivering exactly what visitors head to Le Bon Marché for: High-end, on-trend items that reflect French-girl style.

Prior 24 Sévres, if you wanted to buy anything Celine, you had to go to one of the store's boutiques or call a physical retailer. "Since our launch last June, demand for Celine on the site has been high and consistent," CEO Eric Goguey said in a press release at the time of the launch.
In addition to adding handbags like the Big Bag, the Classic Box, the Belt Bag, and the Trio, 24 Sévres also restocked an assortment of sunglasses and jewellery just in time for Christmas...
