Samuel Drira´s constant idea is to bring a sort of uniformity, but not the literal one that sound stiff and rigid, but he is about pieces with a certain flexibility or in other words, elevated basics, must-haves that encompass all elements, from comfort to quality, from ease to versatility. Layering silhouettes, made from elaborated garments inspirited by essential pieces, as may be the kimono and a shirt in an East-meets-West way, like for example relaxing denim with a Judo belt, lightweight lacquered leather reversible blouson, tunics, fringed dresses and ponchos, cotton track pants and bicolour plisse knits. The colour palette is mostly in the Nehera classic scheme, like beige, black and oatmeal, but Drira added also some pop of colour, seen in saturated tones of purple, khaki and rust, inspired by the universe of artist Serge Lutens.
Last few years, every December Céline surprises us with some special picks, something available to buy only during this month, a sort of celebrative way to connect the passing year with the upcoming one, or cynics would say an another way to make money during the "feel sorry for my wallet/account" month. Take it as you preffer, romantically or rough, Céline named it simply "December selection". Something for you or for (really) beloved ones. Something for (almost) every taste, something that will suit (almost) every pocket, of course in Céline ratio speaking. Among quite wide range, we picked below (from top to bottom, left to right): the crew neck sweater in camel wool mouline, soft ballerina flat in navy nappa lambskin, the xxl coin bracelet in gray-pink marble and gold brass, the beige sangle shoulder bag, woven check moccasin in optic white, frame evening clutch on chain in black and white smooth lambskin, diane sunglasses, parka in navy double face cashmere and dot triple long earrings in gold brass.
