The shape of being shapeless. This is what the main philosophy of the Céline spring/summer 2014 collection, presented at Paris Fashion Week, tells us in answer to our various style questions. The super interesting motives applied to the pieces by Phoeble Philo are enticing and cool. Where else can we find those unique brushstroke prints on pleated skirts and elongated tops? Hardly exists any source more suitable than this collection to see those spectacular masterpieces of artwork.
Thus, the first cornerstone of the Céline spring/summer 2014 collection are those brushstroke patterns and the other one is the shapeless and at the same time specifically made asymmetrical patterns that seem to unify the overall silhouettes in their diversity. The show started with a combination of an elongated tank top and a pleated skirt carrying the distinctive paintbrush prints. Further came the asymmetrical outlines of skirts combined with T-shirt pieces and having the trendy kimono cuts at the sleeves, which were repeated with some other garments as well.
The halter elements used in many collections showcased before this one at the fashion week find an absolutely new interpretation in the Céline spring/summer 2014 collection. The descriptive O-ring shapes found on many dresses and coats are used to create halters as well. Smart and beautiful solution especially in case of thoroughly pleated tops!
The coats having asymmetrical shapes and typical relaxed and loose attitude are one of the most eye-catching parts of the collection. The fringes and ruffled designs are taken by smaller proportions, yet they are very cute and nicely put. The color palette seems to be taken directly from an abstract painting made by a famous modern artist. It includes lavishly yet very delicately chosen color combinations with red, yellow, cream, black, green, and white, found within very many variants of combining and crossing them.
If you want to be different and have a desire to stand out in the crowd, the Céline spring/summer 2014 collection can give you that chance.
