This season Phoebe Philo experimented with the idea of refinement juxtaposed with oddity and the result was a strong and distinctive Celine RTW collection.   The hero pieces of this season, of which were featured heavily thoughout the lookbook, are the Sahara Tan Crew Neck Oversized Blouse with matching wrap ruffle skirt. There is an element of Spanish influence in this outfit and when paired with this season’s Celine Leather Jacket in Forest Green we can see how Philo has worked to create a collection that pushes boundries in both silhouette and colour palette. This entire outfit has already been street snapped on Poppy Delevingne and Binx Walton is a long-time fan of the Celine Leather Jacket in Forest Green.   Another strong story in the collection is the floral printed story that also features in the lookbook. The stand-out piece in this story long sleeve, high neck blouse with full sleeves that conveys to the wearer a sense of non-conformity and eccentricity in its cut and print. Gaby Odibe and Cara Delevigne have both been spotted wearing this Celine floral blouse along with Celine’s classic Men’s style cashmere and wool pant.   Fans of Celine wait with bated breath every season for the tailoring elements of the collection, in particular the shirting that Phoebe Philo injects into every collection. From the collared shirt tied at the bust to the ¾ sleeve bib shirt, Philo explores the traditional notions of tailoring yet pushing boundaries the boundaries. Continuing the idea of refinement and covering up, the collared shirt tied at bust as spotted on Alexa Chung and Christine Centenera perfectly showcases Philo’s concept.   Flowing through Philo’s sensibilities of Celine style feminism comes the classic pleated A-line skirt in both camel and Bordeaux/brown. Gwyneth Paltrow and Miranda Kerr have been sporting this garment as a wardrobe staple. With the room to layer, to get the complete image of a woman in reality-show culture, the leather biker jacket in black as seen on Mila Kunis, completes the look.
