I, like so many Phoebe philes, wasn’t happy when Hedi Slimane was named the new Creative Director at Celine. And his first show, a reprise of everything he did at Saint Laurent, felt lazy and completely uninspired. But he is a talented designer and his latest show gives me hope. It is vintage Celine, as in most likely culled from the Seventies archives, which is my favorite decade.
Is it too retro? A bit, I am not sure about a pleated knee-length skirt. But if you separate the pieces–the culottes, the knee-high boots, the blazers, there are some good everyday go-to items. In fact, I was lucky enough to have a friend recently give me a pair of Gucci culottes she no longer wears, I can’t wait to wear them with my knee-high boots.
