Looking craftsy, unfinished wood runway set and winding rows of brightly painted metal chair , it looked as if we were going to take art class in the afternoon of Sunday Celine show . Instead, the designer Phoebe Philo showed one of the strongest collections of the season , affecting a few ideas that were in the air ( including artistic inspiration , urban sportswear, even pleated skirt ) .
Appearance: High impact, but with the purity and simplicity of design that characterizes the brand. Bold, colorful strokes of primary color , shiny geometric accents and a new silhouette , composed of elongated over the top pleated skirt below the knee .
Major works: Long black and white swirl print jersey red smear print pleated skirt. Oversized red and black swirl print tee over asymmetrical black-and- white stripe micro- skirt. Black tank dress with mesh skirt. Bold striped jersey. Asymmetrical black skirt , low-slung O-ring belt. Black leather tank dress with a brushed metal ring details on his shoulder. Sculptor , hourglass-shaped black jacket long white shirts and white , micro- pleated skirt. Bags resemble flattened cubes, with a shiny square handles hardware . Colorful , Vans -like, woven booties sneakers . Sling backs of mules and balanced on top of a shiny metal ball or cylindrical heels. Paint stroke as jewelry .
Verdict : Evidence why Philo is one of the few true leaders in today’s fashion. This collection was not only wildly imaginative visual statement , it was a forward direction – a new way to wear color and print .
