STANDOUT WITHOUT BEING LOUD


Not minding the in-the-between s/s 2016 haute couture time revelation, in a very limited access of course, of their pre-fall 2016 collection, Phoebe´s latest (official and showcased)  Céline collection, the S/S 2016, was probably one of her bests so far, if not the best yet to date. Her aesthetic of an elevated minimalism, enriched with arty elements, unexpected details and superior craftsmanship were all present here in maximum levels. Although it may have looked at first sight more sober, probably because of earthier colour palette, including ivory, olive green, tobacco, black and powdery beige-pink, the collection was anything but restrained. The show started with a series of silk slip dresses with some inserting by graphic chevrons of lace and paired with utilitarian footwear to“calm-down” ore more to say balanced the daily femininity, continuing with hourglass-shape coats with elongated knit waists, off shoulder puff sleeve tops, 3/4 length skirts, super-fine pleated knit dresses, voluminous wrap front pants, not to mention flat woven shoes in red, cowboy-inspired booties, the square bag with the front pocket and those pillow-like soft bags. These are great new adds of edgy, elegant, timeless, but still very contemporary pieces to enrich a wardrobe of an independent, creative and intellectual woman.
