Phoebe Philo‘s inaugural collection is a powerful punch of imagery and silhouettes with the designer’s oddness, eroticism, and humor that are just perfectly wearable. The thrill of her attitude radiates from her pictures with an uncompromising confidence: strong women, who are basically looking down on the viewer.
The collection spans ready-to-wear and accessories, which feature many of the hallmarks that have gained her a cult following in fashion: smart tailoring, luxurious knits, elegant draping, measured oversized shapes.
With this collection her equation is a big, rounded shoulder line, trousers, and always, with everything, high heels. New varieties of very specific heels, that is—ones that are high-vamped just-off-classic loafers with heels sculpted to be solid and wide at the back, yet sliced thin in profile; madly funny fringed ones; and seriously sexy stiletto pumps. The slanted silhouette struck by her model wearing a dark brown leather blouson, cinched into a drop-waisted peplum, with a perfectly -graduated wideness to her pants says it all.
Phoebe Philo suggests so many elegant short-cuts to chic with designs for living also mixes in things to adapt.
