Phoebe Philo could leave Céline, but the Pre-Fall collection rocks anyway. (for now at least) I don’t know about you, but I usually like these in between-y collections more than the ‘main’ ones, but that must be hardly accidental if we look at the fact that the shelf lives of these collections are much longer.
But I digress, Phoebe’s absence will definitely leave a hole and whether she joins Burberry only time will tell, after all, it’s not unheard from her to take a well-deserved break, and if that is what takes her to be her best designer self, than amen to that.
Hedi Slimane is about to fill that gap as he’s introducing his new Spring/Summer collection in September (or more like October) which means we’re going to get a totally new Céline aesthetic with – no doubt – lots of rock&roll elements. In theory I should be happy as a kid on Christmas morning, but seeing what he did at
Yves Saint Laurent, I’ve got some doubts. We’ll se for sure, but until then, here we have the latest collection steeped in Philo’s creative vision, and I am definitely cheerful for it.
Have a great sunny long weekend! See you soon!
