Mixing 70s and 80s with modern silhouettes, Philo again creates a beautiful collection full of contrasts between old and new, feminine and masculine. In a true CELINE fashion, oversized blazers, clean-cut suits and flowy maxi dresses made appearances in the show. This time, however, Philo geniously added elements of suprise onto each piece. Trousers, for example, had fine silk on peaking thru the hems. Or, a white sleeveless mid-length tunic had bold black embroidered bra tops. These twists are what excites CELINE fans; stylish yet statement-making pieces that only sophisticated women can pull off. Philo also incorporated 70-80s textures, like pleats, onto skirts, recreating them into classic, modern items. Models strut the runway in 90s style ankle boots and 80s slipper pumps that shot up in popularity after the show.
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.
