In 1945, Céline Vipiana and her husband, Richard, created one of the first luxury brands in the industry, Céline, a made-to-measure children's shoe business and opened a first boutique at 52 rue Malte in Paris. The brand was recognized by its logo, the red elephant created by Raymont Peynet.  

Céline is a French ready-to-wear and leather luxury goods brand now owned by LVMH group and offers distinctive cutting edge, avant garde design in their sunglasses.
