Céline’s latest collection features tailored silhouettes with a feminine twist

Creative Director Phoebe Philo is designing clothes and accessories for Céline that absolutely define the look of this time: intelligent, artful, idiosyncratic.

Philo presented the Céline Resort 2018 collection last July when editors were in Paris for the couture shows. Thematically, it’s of a piece with the Céline runway show that followed in early October in its emphasis on strong, somewhat oversized tailoring, its touches of delicate lingerie lace, and its embrace of the eccentric hero piece.

Keeping with neutral tones, the collection features, white, beige, black with touches of color such as blue, burgundy and camel. A burnt rainbow print appear to the feminine pieces bring a more delicate tone to already geometric and classic styles.

Philo and her team morphed ideas somewhere between July and October. With large square scarves that drape unexpectedly across the shoulders of V-neck sweaters, the collection is distinctive and trendy with a constructional twist.
