Céline fall 2015

Phoebe Philo continues her exploration of dramatic shapes and alternative glamour in her fall 2015 collection for Céline, raising important questions about sensuality, sexualization and authenticity. This time, the designer left behind her austere aesthetics, looking for inspiration in Latin America —a decision the led her to use the music of celebrated Brazilian singer Caetano Veloso as a soundtrack. Philo showed a remarkably passionate collection full of little surprises that impressed the fashion aficionados and critics with its innovative playfulness and fragility, standing somewhere between feminine cuteness and mature elegance.

The collection included a series of exquisite fur-trimmed coats; whimsical blouses adorned with fox, otter and hare prints; embroidered crocheted lace pants that revealed parts of the skin; flirtatious puffy coats whose sleeves were unbuttoned; deconstructed, color-blocked slipdresses; luxurious wide-leg pants; beautifully cut leather trench coats; shoes with embellished toes and heels; as well as a series of lively pom-pom scarves that stole the spotlight.

“I feel like I’m always on guard for women not to be sexualized. We’ve created quite a practical world at Céline. I wanted to think more about a kind of tattered glamour this time. Then it’s a question of looking at things and asking: When is glamour sexualized? When is that too much, and when is it not enough? Is that womanly or girly?” Philo said at the backstage, explaining the inspiration behind one of her best collections to date and setting the tone for fall 2015.
