Céline Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2010
Phoebe Pilo’s debut springcollection at Céline was a huge success. Copies of her crisply chic safari jackets and dresses, the long white shirts and A-line skirts are dominating the stores of cheap fashionlabels as we speak, but the house’s originals are also selling very well. Philo’s first collection was a breath of fresh air at a time when fashion needed a respite from recession and the glamazon look of black leather and big shoulders.
So expectations were high for her second collection. But as Philo said in her interview with T-magazine, she continued her work with great investment pieces in the best fabrics and in her signature clean, sophisticated cut. No frills, but deep blue coats instead, tailoring, short jackets, skinny pants, white (lace) shirts and leather pockets as a contrasting detail at A-line skirts. Ultra-chique and a winner were the white lammy capes. Simple, but feminine.
