Once again (it already became a cliché, but I Love this one!) Phoebe Philo surprised me and inspired me with her new collection for Céline. This time inspired by Parisian graffiti, the ones that Brassai photographed in the 20´s mixed with an elegant African tribalism, artisanal concepts and colors reminding “Art Brut”. The collection opened with prolonged, “brush-painted” T-shirts and tanks that made with long, over-the-knee skirts a 20´s silhouette look. She continued to pair those skirts with oversize sweaters and tunics to make great texture diversity in the collection. Coats got an important role too, bold-painterly for dare women, black belted and bordered with multicolored O-rings for modern, but less “loud” ones.  Who don´t Love Céline bags? I bet you will Love from this collection too or even more! Big sacks with fringes or big and flat carryalls in vivid colors with contrasting lining and metal handles. Shoes? Those shoes! In front quite simple, “normal” but with an edge in the heel part: cubic-metal or transparent or with “Love, Life” labels on sneakers back.

Phoebe is definitely a woman who understands women´s needs (of course you will say, she´s a woman…but in most cases that´s not an assurance) and she make comfortable and functional dresses (and not only) with a fresh and modern appeal.
