Stop Being So Perfect, Céline! 10 Purses Made Of Pure, Understated Genius

Oh, Céline. The hours we've wasted, window-gawking at your bags in Barneys, sputtering about their utter perfection.
And we're not the only ones — recently called the "pinnacle It brand," the house that Phoebe Philo built has become the standard bearer for modern luxury goods, thanks to its unerring style and quality.
Witness, the 10 bags ahead. Their pared-down perfection may not be accessible to us anytime soon — but you can bet we've earmarked some of our future lotto funds for one of these understated beauts. In the meantime, that'll be us fogging up the glass at Barneys.
To the bags!
