F/W'11: CELINE CLASSICS
With the onset of Fall-Winter'11, Céline's fashion guru and maestro, Phoebe Philo, has released a collection of timeless pieces that encapsulates her style and substance as a designer - utilitarian and aesthetically sound. The collection dare I say is quite boyish, but in spite of this it exudes femininity and a sense of class and elegance. I must say, Céline designs are great samples of couture that works for both gender as Kanye West has demonstrated with the Spring-Summer'11 piece he's worn[quite well if I may add]. And it is this trait of Philo's collection which endears me to their couture pieces.
For this collection Philo has opted to showcase bolder colors vs. the neutral hues she's known for. To be honest, I am in love with it - simple enamored!! I think the articles are definite classics that will transcend seasons and it would be a dream to own at least a piece. So for now, while I dream of my very own Classic Box, I'll dream as well this Classics Collection while I'm at it [hmm, I can't decide which one to dream of - that nice dark blue coat or that gorgeous white and sky blue boy shirt!].
