* Nordstrom selling Celine Dion’s new fashion collection online
* Affordable collection includes handbags, luggage and small accessories
* Dion is currently finding new fame as a fashion icon
Celine Dion, fashion icon? A few years ago, few would have considered the big-voiced Canadian diva much more than a stage act, but these days, you can’t walk past a magazine or scroll through social media without seeing Dion’s incredible outfits lining the pages or dotting your screen.
The singer has publicly cited stylist (or as she calls him, her “image architect“) Law Roach for her transformation. Roach, who also styles Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood cover star, Zendaya, says Dion is an incredible palette for designers to dress because she, “has no fear.” To wit, just see how the superstar took over the recent Paris Couture Week.
Now, Nordstrom is hoping the “Love Can Move Mountains” singer can move some merchandise as well. The retailer snagged the exclusive launch of the Celine Dion Fall 2017 Collection earlier this year, and the pieces are finally available for sale.
The affordable handbags, luggage and small accessories collection has about 50 pieces, including the signature handbag that is part of the brand’s ad campaign. Retail prices range from $58 to $298. Here are the four best pieces to buy:
1. Symphony Faux Leather Clutch
Whether you’re attending the Grammy’s or just heading out for a night on the town, this rose gold clutch is a solid bet. The convertible clutch can be worn as a wristlet or over the shoulder for convenience. Though many of the pieces in Dion’s collection are produced with real leather, she offers a few faux options like this as well, for the conscious consumer.
2. Presto Nylon Tote
Dion’s take on the classic nylon tote gets a modern makeover in this soft and passionate shade of blue. The singer — who has three kids — says the spacious top-zip tote is ideal for other moms, though the easy-to-clean bag is also great for school, for a workout class and for the office. The shoulder strap features a 9-inch drop to fit easily under your arm.
3. Triad Leather Satchel
Rendered in a beautiful burgundy leather, this structured satchel maintains its shape with a flat base and sturdy straps. Adjust the straps to carry it in your hands, over the arm, or slung over the shoulders. The bag has two interior compartments that fit your phone, wallet, makeup, charger, keys and other essentials.
4. Octave Leather Satchel
The signature piece in the collection, the brushed-goldtone hardware shines against the rich leather, while the roomy interior offers enough space for all your stuff. The adjustable shoulder strap is detachable, too.
“I’m excited at this opportunity to launch my collection with Nordstrom,” Dion said in a statement. “My collection is all about affordable luxury, and we’ve created beautiful designs with excellent quality and I can’t wait for everyone to discover all of this.”
Dion has sold more than 240 million records during her storied career, earning five Grammy Awards, two Academy Awards, seven American Music Awards, and in her native Canada, 20 Juno Awards. Her Las Vegas show, Céline at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, is in its 14th year of residency and starts up again this fall.
