All the Buzz in Fash­ion

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

Speak­ing to fash­ion scribes post-show at the Ten­nis Club de Paris, Phoebe Philo tossed around words such as “joy” and “cel­e­bra­tion” while ex­plain­ing her de­sire to spread love and op­ti­mism at Cé­line this sea­son. Ear­lier, she had recre­ated that warm and fuzzy feel­ing of sit­ting around a bon­fire via a Smil­jan Radic-de­signed set that re­sem­bled a gi­gan­tic tent, be­fore hud­dling her guests to­gether on benches cov­ered with sleep­ing bags. With ev­ery­one in such close prox­im­ity and Mary J. Blige croon­ing “You’re All I Need to Get By” over the speak­ers, Philo rolled out a col­lec­tion that de­liv­ered on the sar­to­rial— and emo­tional—front. Dou­ble-lay­ered trench coats were in­stalled with hems that looped dra­mat­i­cally in­wards; cropped boxy jack­ets came with gen­er­ously-cut pleated pants; over­sized polo t-shirts peeked from un­der mas­cu­line vests; feath­ers flut­tered and fringes danced on dresses… She en­sured a dis­play of fash­ion that filled ev­ery inch of the body with good vibes. Now into the fi­nal stretch of her ten­ure, Philo’s Mi­das touch will be missed once she presents her last Cé­line col­lec­tion in March for fall/win­ter 2018.
