Listen to this whilst looking at Celine’s RTW Fall collection.
Phoebe Philo creates her second collection for Celine this A/W. The minimalist technique, the simple but luxurious fabrics, Philo knows what looks good. The collection is strong but simple, powerful but flattering, conservative but sexy. I’ve never liked the shape or style of A-line skirts, but the narrow A-lines and silk shirt combination is my favourite look of the collection. The whole collection brings back traits of both the 50s, 60s and even the 70s. Philo’s got the variety that every woman needs – the clothes can be dressed up or down and each have their own versatility. Bringing femininity back to the runway, then dressing it up in a manly trenchcoat? I applaud her.
