Celine Dion returns home to launch handbag collection: 'It feels like I can spread my wings'

By Hello! Canada

Celine Dion's new handbag line has officially launched! Thousands lined the street outside Browns Shoes to catch a glimpse of the superstar as she returned to Montreal to debut the collection.

The mother of three continued her sartorial streak on home soil, looking sharp and sophisticated in a stunning coral dress with a pink scarf. She greeted her adoring fans before heading inside the store to give a spirited interview with members of the media.

While the singer expressed her excitement over spearheading her own lifestyle brand, she also took time to reflect on how she managed to get through the grief and pain of losing her beloved husband René Angélil in January 2016. She told reporters, "I went through a lot. I'm not the only one. Sometimes when you go through a lot there is a force that takes over when you believe. I'm such a believer because I'm a mother, because I'm a sister, because I'm a friend and because I have vision and I want to create. I think at this time of my life it feels like I can spread my wings."

Spreading her wings, she is. The Celine Dion Collection features some 200 pieces, including luggage, handbags, clutches and other small leather goods. Some items will be available for pre-sale online now, while the full collection hits stores in September. Even better? Her line is in a modest price range between USD$88 to $298. Totally chic and, even better, totally affordable!

Given all eyes in the fashion world have been on the 49-year-old as of late, there's little doubt each item will sell out.

The GRAMMY Award winner has become somewhat of a fashion icon this year, as she debuted a multitude of stylish, trend-setting looks while gallivanting around Europe. She headed to the continent in June as part of her Live 2017 tour in countries like Britain, Germany and France, and while there made her mark as a style icon and fashion muse. Now that the curtain has closed on her summer run, the songstress is preparing to pack her bags and return to North America for a busy autumn.

The "Encore Un Soir" singer will soon head back to her home in Nevada ahead of a hotly anticipated return to her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on September 19. The platform will keep the mom of three busy several nights a week through the end of the year.
