Show Review: Céline Pre-Fall 2013
By Faith

Phoebe Philo is the sartorial queen of structure and tailoring, and she stays in line with what she does best for Céline’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The designs skew traditional and neutral, with a handful of different prints and patterns. My take on the offerings? I think the fashion house is ushering in an entirely new idea for the season: pilgrim chic. It is virtually impossible not to think of the Mayflower riders with all the large buckles, long overcoats, and wide brim hats at play.

Feminine spins are given to menswear-inspired silhouettes with a double-breasted jumpsuit, a long sheath layered over matching trousers, and suit jackets made ladylike with peplum detailing. Two-tone coloring is back for the season, though in metallics and dark Fall-perfect shades. Accessories range from creeper-esque wedges to simple leather totes and clutches.

You’ll be able to resurrect your leather wares for the season as the edgy texture shows up everywhere here from calf-length pleated skirts to long-sleeve peplum tops.

One can count the number of prints in the collection on one hand, but they give the designs some life: a medallion print look channeling a sari and a multicolor stripe pattern are the only traces left of Summer before the brisk Fall temperatures set in.

What do you think?

    I’m a huge Celine fan, and this collection did not disappoint. Here for shoes, coats, and bags. Phoebe does minimalism like no other.

    Looks futuristic without being too blatant. Loved the grey suit with burgundy turtleneck.

  10. TheFav1 says:

    I see peplums and pleats aren’t going any where :)

  11. Elle Wills says:

    Love it but don’t think it will translate well for the consumers. You have to be tall to pull off 80% of these looks.

  12. LaTasha says:

    I’m loving this new Celine line. I especially love the handbag the girls are carrying. The handbag is very versatile because you can either wear the bag out on the town or to the corporate office. Oh…and the big gold belt buckle…love.

    Love this collection!!! It’s absolutely amazing I’ve never really payed attention to Kim K but I’m so jealous right now I’m sure Kanye will be having her dressed to the tee during this pregnancy!
