PFW: Céline SS17

Céline brings sophistication, socks and sandals to the runway for SS17.

Work Of Art

For SS17, Creative Director Phoebe Philo collaborates with American artist Dan Graham, whose work she came across in NYC many years ago and instantly fell in love. Dan created a glorious glass wall installation that twisted along the catwalk, meaning the audience could see both the clothes and themselves; making for what Phoebe deems as a more “interesting and powerful way” to present her collection to the audience. Speaking of art – Céline’s collection for this PFW hit the audience with endless sophistication and modern femininity in the form of loose fit dresses, oversized suits and sultry cut-outs. The pieces were crafted with careful details like ombré skirts, crochet busts and fringe necklines; increasing the excitement with every look, guaranteeing our eyes stayed glued on the runway at all times.

Socks & Sandals

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. You thought it would never happen, you deemed it the biggest ‘fashion don’t’, you joined in when the internet mocked it to oblivion – well who’s laughing now, because it is here and it is happening! Céline says so. Thin black tights and thick mismatch coloured socks were layered under dainty strappy heels, serving that who-needs-shoes look, with toes peeking through the low denier hosiery. On the complete opposite side of the fashion scale was the appearance of bright white trainers that added the perfect casual-cool vibe to elegant dresses.
