Céline #RTW Spring 2015 #PFW

"Vulnerability for Philo this season meant embracing uncertainty. 'In a way, I was open to everything - no preconceived ideas, very little of me saying no.' The collection was almost a stream of consciousness, a random portmanteau of moods and emotions from the very first outfit: a utilitarian top paired with a fitted knit skirt, provocatively slit front and back, that dissolved into a mass of fringing. Work and play in one artful package. It set the tone for what followed. It was fascinating to watch the way in which shapes as practical as a coat, a tunic, or a shift were unhinged by lacquered inserts, cutouts, streamers of fabric. The floral prints were new - a bourgeois insertion into Céline's implacable cool. A risk, perhaps. But, as Philo pointed out, edit certainty from the equation and the connection between creativity and risk becomes even more graphic. That connection - raw, dynamic - is the same extraordinary one Philo has made with women all over the world." -
