Celine Pre-SS17 collection draws women to Céline are Philo’s subtly nonconformist taste level. This time it was her brilliant colour sense, which demonstrated that distinction—mint green and magenta combined in a low-waisted cotton shirtdress attached to a flowy skirt, with red boots and a bag, for example; or the offbeat shades of lemon and pink in a couple of draped, caped evening dresses. All in all, there was a sense that a Céline woman could go anywhere she needs in these clothes—to the school gate in the trainers, to a meeting in the tailoring, to a gallery opening or a cocktail party—without feeling either underdressed or overdone. It was fashion on an intuitive, clever, understanding wavelength. We know it when we see it—no explanation needed.   A bronze and black single breast - trench coat, like Celine’s aptly named classic design, will never go out of style. It is crafted from light cotton-gabardine, and finished with button fastening and an optional belt tie to cinch the loose silhouette. Wear the coat over everyday separates between seasons, or alternatively, layer over Celine’s navy blouse. Equal parts understated and glamorous, the design is cut from lustrous cotton-faille and gathered with ruched puffed ¾ sleeves for elegant definition. Tuck it into a pair of high-waisted trousers come evening.   The Celine SS17 RTW collection, showcases skirts of free-flowing and voluminous forms, which where made from premium cotton-faille and cut to sit high on the waist, flaring with wrap around panels to an asymmetric midi hem. Watch how well it works with block-heeled ankle boots and Celine’s iconic tri-fold bag.   Refreshing latest seasons must-have style – Celine’s culottes with a fixed waist are cut from a fluid viscose to sit high on the waist, and fall in wide legs to the ankle. Featuring an eye-catching red stripe, these culottes can be worn tucked in a ruffle-trimmed blouse and ground with statement heels.   Playing homage to demure 1970s style, the Celine a-line skirt combines a classic silhouette with a retro drawstring waist, and sits flatteringly high on the waist, falling below the knee. Enhance the washed floral skirt with a streamlined sweater and Mary Jane pumps. This season, Celine refreshes the classic white linen shirt with its signature roses print. The short-sleeved collared boxy button up shirt is instantly recognizable with its print. Wear it to elevate everyday jeans. SS17 is the season to embrace fluid jersey and light canvas fabrics, and Celine’s pleated skirt is an elegant example - its gently pleated it ensure the most beautiful movement. Don’t wait to wear it out at night – a roll-neck sweater and block-heeled boots will make it work for day.
