Under the creative direction of Phoebe Philo, Céline has reached cult status. With everyone cueing in for her next burst of genius, the intimate show last year held only for close ‘friend-itors’ due to Philo being 8 months pregnant with her third child, made this season’s show even more anticipated. Her collection was inspired by the relaxed-chic aesthetic. Drawing on full silhouettes, natural fabrics and a simple colour palette, the collection was defined by the artistic twists of fabric and outrageous shoes. Mink lined leather sandals, mink covered pumps in candy popping colours, and nude shoes with painted red toes on top all gave the minimalistic collection a bit of that edge we love to see from Céline.
