Celine keeps it SIMPLE!October 3rd, 2011 by Hotel Fashionland received Comments Off
Since her debut at Celine two years ago, Phoebe Philo’s legions of fans have gotten used to all things sleek and streamlined. But for Spring, Philo is thinking about shape. “It’s just very sculptural, very three-dimensional,” she said afterward to the associated press. ”We accentuated the bits that felt strong to accentuate, tried to create some new proportions.”
You can count Philo among the growing number of designers who looked to fifties and sixties couture silhouettes for inspiration—as evidenced by the full, rounded sleeves of the army jackets, the Watteau backs of her blouses, the peplums circling the hips.
You can also put her on the short list of those who made the era look modern and new.
Chalk that up to the luxuriously spartan sensibility of the collection: no prints, no appliqués, few unnecessary extras save for the leather envelope bags and platform ankle-strap pumps that women will find very necessary indeed next spring. Source: Style.com
