Designer Phoebe Philo has come out with a new winter ready to wear collection for Celine and it is quite interesting. Philo manages to make a collection that’s all about women and strength. Some dresses even hold a whimsy-like feel that is playful and entertaining.
There are many different styles presented in Philo’s work, slips of multi-colors, plush satin coats with buttoned sleeves and even leather coats with drawstrings around the waist. That’s just to name a few; the accessories also are otherworldly: the bags are large, scarves have big fur pompoms and heels are bejeweled.
One of the things that makes this collection weird (but unique!) is that while it exudes strength it is also playful and features illustrations of otters, foxes onto silk tops from children’s books.
While it may seem that too much is going on, for some it may even be overwhelming, this is a breath of fresh air into a market strong with competition.
