CELINE's 2017 Autumn/Winter runway show captured exactly the life of a woman in the corporate world: busy, chaotic, high-pressure and repetitive. While the audience observed on revolving turntables, models were released on the set in a non-organized manner...but they still looked chic. Stylish everyday looks are the specialty of beloved designer Phoebe Philo; pieces such as flawless trench coats, boxy pant suits and long collared shirts are clothes women can see themselves wearing everyday. They are sophisticated simplistic clothes that have the right amount of innovative surprises like flowy fringes on the hem, oversized scarves and long sleeves that go past the fingers. Philo almost always includes trends in her collection; this time, an off-shoulder bandeau top. But when CELINE does it, even the trendy items become chic and timeless.
Staying true to its concept of "less but excellent", CELINE crafts timefeless pieces that are modern, clean-cut and elegant, from quality materials that last a lifetime. Collection after collection, the French fashion house plays on beautiful contrasts: feminine yet masculine, dramatic shoulders with small waists, crisp trousers and flowy hems. While at a glance, CELINE items may seem minimalistics and basic, with more careful attention, one can see that each piece has an element of innovative surprise. This attention to detail is something the brand prouds itself and it is what its fans, who are stylish working women, yearn for. Comfortable and wearable are also the key to CELINE designs; while being luxurious and high-fashion, every item on the runway can be imagined worn by everyday women.
