Resort continues……Celine 2011…

Phoebe Philo it must be said, redirects fashion with every collection, whether you work in fashion or not, it is impossible not to fall under her spell and vision, with her modern day Lee Radziwill ladies, wearing her clean, minimal and utterly modern clothing…..there is nothing nineties about it….with what is essentially her seventies aesthetic, she creates a new language for women today, reintroduces fabrics that anyone under 35 may have only ever encountered in a vintage store and makes it clear that the quality of these clothes are as important as their design…there is nowhere to hide in something so deceptively simple  …………I am convinced her clothes would make a woman taller and leaner, simply by putting something on, my favorites are the trench look with mustard flared pants and my all time classic favorite, the chiffon pussy bow tie dress in beautiful prints………and her use of colour is very Phoebe Philo, even in her Chloe days she was brave enough to go where no one imagined……there is a certain Jamaica inspired summer collection that comes to mind……….she has brought back elegance to a very inelegant world…..

  1. GREAT stuff… but I tried to do the casual pants look last night (with my $1 army pants from the op shop) and got told I looked like I was going to an interview… hmm… maybe not really “my” look…

    Beautiful stuff Phoebe Philo created as always. I read her interview with Gentlewoman magazine recently and was blown away by how amazing & talented she really is.
