Back to minimal? This as my first thought when I saw this collection. Not that Céline would have ever been so maximalist, or maximalist at all, but lately Phoebe Philo has liked to play with different silhouettes, fabrics, colours and accessories with, which, sometimes were pretty unexpected, especially on the shoe front (eg: ugly sandals or one pair, but each bootie in different colour?).
This time, however, there is nothing ‘extra special/weird’, but the good old sharply tailored suits, leather shirts and scarves, western style booties and extra large, ultra minimalist bucket bags. Instead of that extra odd something, the emphasis is on those extra strong shapes and tailoring again, which I have to say, go pretty well with these more simple colours, mostly black and white.
Now it’s sure, suit will be a big trend whether you like it/have to wear it or not, and I’m not sure what I think about it yet, because even though I like it on the runways, Vetements got me with the hoodie/deconstructed denim trend because it was so suitable to my current lifestyle. But for the women who work in offices, it will be easier again to get dressed fashionable. Plus there’s no such law one can’t wear suits to do the groceries or pick up the kids, am I right? Right.
On the other hand, I’m pretty sure, I won’t give in to the upcoming fur trend… I really hope this one on the picture is faux at least, but it looks nicer than that, so yuck…
