Céline unveiled spring/summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection designed by Phoebe Philo.
The show opened with a series of white lingerie slip dresses and camisoles (it seems to be a trend for spring and summer) which arrived in silk and leather versions and trimmed with black lace. They had ironed-in creases as though they had been neatly folded and pulled straight out of a suitcase. Other pieces too had that same feeling, like a crinkled shirt dress that looked like it might have been slept in, but prettily so, and came grounded with a modern cowboy boot. From lingerie dressing the collection progressed into structured outerwear, plush white furs, and suiting-like plaids, before coming to a close with a leather dress with a knit mid-section worn over loose cream trousers.
One is sure – this season’s Céline collection is a lesson in contrasts
