The Celine resort 2017 collection by Phoebe Philo was presented on the day of the United States Presidential election in what many are considering an attempt to slip in the interesting collection as a surprising footnote for the day. It is possible that the intent of Phoebe Philo was to let the fashions speak for the resort 2017 collection rather than creating a lot of pomp for an unveiling. It was like a surprising mystery reveal that was amusing in the way it was silently presented, but still hailed as a well-designed success.
The silence of the reveal from Céline and Phoebe Philo’s side was more than mysterious and has a lot of consideration going around in regards to why there was no pomp or any high levels of attention set up before the Céline cruise 2017 collection was revealed. One considered possibility is that the collection is not meant to be seen to the point that people are tired of seeing it before the clothes can be purchased in Céline stores.
It is a possibility of course, but in all truth it does not matter. There are brand loyal Céline customers who were excited to see the designs and Phoebe Philo’s fashions are not designed to not be seen after all. Perhaps she just wanted to avoid the process of creating a huge amount of want to see the collection because it was already there.
Céline is a brand synonymous with luxury and well thought out, incredible pieces. There is no way that the collection would be revealed in a way that is completely unnoticed or unwanted. The necessity of a pre-endorsed collection designed to have customers salivating over an upcoming release was completely unnecessary.
Once the images were released, the Céline customer was informed and ready for the oversized menswear inspired line. The silhouettes created with the nipped in waists that appear smaller thanks to the oversized shoulders that tapered down to create the illusion were noted. The pants that featured front pleats and narrow ankles with the feeling of fashions pasts were noted.
The fashions presented for the Céline resort 2017 collection were about very specific tailoring and catching and guiding the eye in very interesting ways. The trench coat is always a great staple and here the oversized wonder of a trench coat will be picked up by a lot of women once it is available.
These clothes will have a very interesting effect on the wearer depending on their individual proportions since all women are not shaped the same way. This is not to suggest the clothes will be unflattering on anyone, just that the fit should be an interesting thing to keep not of as people are seen in the Céline 2017 resort collection once it is available in Céline stores.
