Papier Zip Around reminds of us Céline!

The newest style of Papier A4 Tote, (in kelly green), has extra zippers on the sides of the bag so it can be expanded to a wider trapezoid shape! I didn't think much of it until I came across these amazing modeling pictures from Rakuten.  The calfskin leather looks absolutely gorgeous and soft and the silver toned zips make a striking contrast.  This season's motorcycle collection's leather did not impress me, so I think the Papier line is a great alternative to getting your Balenciaga fix.  I think Balenciaga may be taking cues from Céline, whose having great success with their Phantom styles.  The zip around style also comes in taller style called the Papier Ledger.
