reliving :: celine resort.

I have another important PSA. One that may or may not change your fashion views and desired clothing for the coming months.

Of course it revolves around the ever-great, all-inspiring Celine – because when a label is headed up by a lady like Phoebe Philo, how could it not?  I got so excited at first look that my handy Evernote note was all in CAPS – I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF ALL MY NOTES. Can’t you feel the excitement?

I realise that we are not so much “reliving” this particular collection, when the lookbook release was only very recent. Maybe view it as a reliving as in, harking back to what we may have left behind in our brains ( because daily we are so overwhelmed ), a reminder of that beauty, and the encouragement to bring it forward ( even before the release of the pieces in-store, as we create and mould our own inspired versions ). Phoebe is also successfully bringing back the 80’s silhouette, in a modern boss-girl way.

I am a lover of big shoulders, even the shoulder pads, hence why I can steal so much from my mum’s wardrobe. These Celine pieces are those that may be required, sadly, for an entrepreneurial woman about to meet the business men “hot-shots”. The clothes to scare them into respect. I hate that situation even has to cross my mind, but it’s real – even today the news discussed a $27k salary difference between men and women. On a more trivial note, at least we have the appropriate outfits. In an ideal world / my everyday world, we wear it just because we can, out of love. But these also work for horse riding, or long summer sessions, or a classy night on the town, gin in hand.

As for the sustainability, I couldn’t tell you exactly where Celine sits, and there’s a clear lack of information out there. But I do know this – with key statement pieces that transcend trends, these are items to last and live in a wardrobe, worn often, for a long time; something to pass on and hand down to others in the future.

My own inspired version, on a slightly more realistic budget ( only ever so slightly ) involves a pair of sleek ( environmentally responsible ) Nico underwear and sheer dress ideal for a country wedding, or the hardass pantsuit and jacket with emphasised soldiers ( or take it next-level with this Jacquemus number ) and stomp-all-over-you shoes. All determined by my mood and power status of course.
