Designer Phoebe Philo presented Céline’s spring 2017 collection on Sunday at the Tennis Club de Paris. The collection of draped, flowing gowns and structured outerwear was accented with bold flashes of Yves Klein blue — artfully highlighting feminine form — and unexpected footwear (socks with sandals and mismatched boots, for example).
Celine resort 2017 reveals a side of Céline and Phoebe Philo more mysterious and have many considerations in terms of luxury and splendor. Celine is a brand synonymous with luxury and well thought out, the pieces are remarkable. There is no way that the collection will be revealed in a way that totally unnoticed or unwanted. Celine resort 2017 presenting collections ranging from handbags, shoes and fashion are all extremely pretentious. Here is a collection of Celine Resort 2017.
It seems Phoebe Philo has reached the point where she just wants her clothes to speak for themselves—because she didn’t want to say anything about them before or after her show. To alleviate any suspicion that she might be becoming a recluse, however, the designer was out front, casually milling around, saying hi as her guests took their seats. You cannot blame her for not wanting to take part in the increasingly stressful journalistic scrum, which has developed backstage, as exhausted reporters stick their iPhones in the faces of sleep-deprived designers, a rigmarole no one finds pleasant. Besides, this is no new feeling for Philo. Ever since she was a student at Central Saint Martins, she has always been the girl who stood out from the Conceptuals, and balked at having to give intellectual justifications for her work.
As it transpired, today’s setup and the clothes did speak for themselves—and for a relatable point of view on women’s lives. There was the soundtrack, to begin with: the far-off noise of city traffic, and children’s voices—a subliminal aural image of the school drop-off? Then the models started to circulate, individuals in a busy crowd, each calmly and purposefully on her own route. It wasn’t hard to see the message: This was a broad spectrum of clothes designed to make everyday life a little easier and more beautiful for lots of women.
Need a trouser suit? Then it will have a boxy tailored jacket or coat, with wide, cropped kick flares. The jacket, Philo suggests, might be worn over a long printed skirt. For a summer day dress, there were long-sleeved midis with full skirts. With them, the perfect bag for women who are embarrassed to carry an It bag—a classy, gimmick-free top-handled frame handbag, which looked as if it might have come from the Céline archive. So far, sorted out, simple guidelines for lives, which are already burdened with complications.
But what also draws women to Céline is Philo’s subtly nonconformist taste level. This time it was her brilliant color sense, which demonstrated that distinction—mint green and magenta combined in a low-waisted cotton shirtdress attached to a flowy skirt, with red boots and a bag, for example; or the offbeat shades of lemon and pink in a couple of draped, caped evening dresses. All in all, there was a sense that a Céline woman could go anywhere she needs in these clothes—to the school gate in the trainers, to a meeting in the tailoring, to a gallery opening or a cocktail party—without feeling either underdressed or overdone. It was fashion on an intuitive, clever, understanding wavelength. We know it when we see it—no explanation needed.
Phoebe Philo’s Céline Resort 2017 collection was presented as a surprising footnote for the day. It is possible that the intent of the Creative Director was to let the fashions speak for the collection rather than creating a lot of pomp for an unveiling. One considered possibility is that the collection is not meant to be seen to the point that people are tired of seeing it before the clothes can be purchased in Céline stores.
The collection features radical proportions with specific tailoring. With nipped in waists, oversized shoulders and pants with front pleats and narrow ankles, the silhouettes aredramatic. An oversized beige trenchcoat added is a great staple and will be bring versatility to the closet. Dresses are soft yet structural still incorporation the overall essence of the collection.
What catches the eye most in the new lineup is Philo’s swaggeringly womanly tailoring. These proportions will be different on how they settle on a every body.
The shoulders are the most prominently emphasized body part. With different design details from a puff sleeve, accentuated and tailored suiting, off the shoulder details and ribbed pinning, the collection exhibits unique architectural structures bringin forth different materials to come into play.
The color palette was soft and subdued with subtle floral prints introducing the fashionista to the Spring season making a unique statement all in the styling and design of each piece.
If I watched the Céline Spring ’17 runway with my husband, he wouldn’t get it. And that’s a fact. Phoebe Philo’s never been one to follow convention; but she does make trends, whether or not my husband believes it. What starts as a bold, crazy idea becomes a way of a dress. This season, she begins our wardrobe disruption with proportional play — oversize suit jackets with flowing bottoms of every kind, chiffon skirts that move, even leather pants that feel light and breezy, then suit pants cropped to reveal a layer of breezy sheer fabric hanging to the ankles underneath. Who would’ve thought such a trick adds anything to the outfit? But, watching the runway, I’m convinced it does. There’s subtlety, then big brazen changes, like mismatched shoes in bright colors that feel delightfully different, not silly. It’s not the stuff of sensationalized fashion, but smaller details that make you rethink what you’re wearing and how you wear it. In that way, it’s always an exciting show — dare I say, even a bit sexy.
