collection images: céline, pre-fall
by Jeremy Danté
clean design lines seem to be a mainstay for the céline collections, under the direction of phoebe philo. with the pre-fall set, we see architectual influence combined with color blocking & sleek design that is complimented through leather & animal print. furthermore, the céline womenswear collections are my favorite each season. while creating minimal fashion, it’s inspiring to see what variation philo creates from summer to fall. the coats in this collection are particularly stunning; the structure of design is thrilling & the palette is unexpected. metallic accents & foxtails are seen in the set as well, adding to the unexpected chic that céline offers every season. while im not a huge fan of the blue pieces; the neutral & grey pieces of the collection, along with the plaid designs are beautifully constructed & incredibly stylish. undeniably solid direction.
