Celine Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Oh Celine! It appears that one of the trends we are seeing on the runways for this coming season is the whole nightgown meets outdoors look that we may or may not be fond of. It is a market in the making we believe. Though starting off a collection with breasts and nipples peeking through black lace trimming to a white nightgown style dress is interesting enough. Celine makes us feel feminine, womanly and downright sexy. It always has and we reckon it always will.

So now that we see the black and white appear on stage, the satin bodies with the lace edges, something covered over with a coat but not always, we have to wonder at how incredible those pieces will feel against our bodies. Actually, we are wondering if we can wear the nightgowns we have at home out into the public as well for surely every bride owns a few that look quite similar to these Celine looks, plunging necklines and all.

The Celine spring/summer 2016 collection certainly made waves on the Paris Fashion Week runway and with good reason. While it starts with the above-mentioned gowns, it quickly moves on to typical Celine and that is where the slouchy pants, the tartan prints, the pleated skirts, baby doll and crop tops make an appearance. There was a zen-like calm to the show overall until the latest collection shook up the floor and Phoebe Philo really turned up the heat. Philo has done an amazing job in keeping to the Celine spirit while creating something that is uniquely hers, much like designers such as Miuccia Prada have been doing for seasons on end.

What makes this Celine collection so unique among all the other shows in Paris or around the world, from New York to Milan to London, is the fact that there is no one specific time period that it focuses on, no single style of person, so reference to a specific place. Instead, it just is, gathering energy from all around and giving its own light, the beauty lying in the simplicity of the collection. It is not cluttered up as many might expect from others, it doesn’t have additional layers to merely confuse the aesthetics; it simply is a work of art on its own, from the striped coats to the silk slips, chevrons of lace to puff sleeves, fur coats and leather apron tunics. It was a collection that made us rethink our wardrobes and want something more while still keeping to a minimalistic theme.

“It’s about taking her out of urban life and putting her feet on the sand. It’s where I long to be, more and more,” said Phoebe Philo and we could not agree more. It is where we want to be as well. Philo is more interested in how clothes make us feel than the actual aesthetic, which lends itself to creative comfortable, airy and downright relaxing garments, which feel incredible against your skin. This is the collection for the traveler, with everything you might need in sight. Yes, our suitcases would do well with quite a few of these Celine outfits!
