Celine Resort 13

The resort collection from Celine was all about Philo reinforcing the codes she's created for the house and focusing on those already-iconic Celine pieces and silhouettes. Scarf prints appeared again (fanatsic wide silk trousers and navy and white), as did scarves themselves - tied with perfectly executed insouciance. Whites and ivorys are there, in both sheer silks and crisp white cottons. My favorite look is the cream suit - nothing says expensive and aloof like a spotless pale suit. The same textured fabric is paired with a crisp shirt for a subtle cream-on-white look. It's not all crisp and clinical though, some of my favorite pieces are covered in outsized polkadots - I never ever get tired of spots. Also, the perspex and snakeskin heels are amazing. Celine always makes me want to dress like an accomplished, functional adult all the time.

  1. I absolutely love the last look. Philo manages to reference 70's workwear (think Faye Dunaway in Network), YSL and YSL Rive Gauche and the classic American designers Geoffrey Beene and Halston without being either mawkish or a plagiarist. I wish I could have one iota of her talent!!!
