CELINE YOURSELF!

The first images of the Céline Pre-Fall 2017 collection (available in stores now) I saw thanks to Charles, who knows me by heart, made me think of a slogan: Céline YOURSELF! Each and every time she's dropping a new collection Phoebe Philo is puzzling us. This Pre-Fall is definitely another "Phoebe moment", pursuing the idea she developed in her Spring-Summer 17 and giving it a new perspective, a new dimension. Here "Céline Yourself" could be translated into "let's talk about this hyper hyper femininity coming out of these insanely beautiful garments". The whole fashion world may be craving for ugly/cool, trivial/cool or normcore clothes I just can't take my eyes off Philo's intent to create/re-vamp not so classic garments, the ones you could keep on wearing till the end of times! The ones that are truly relevant, the ones that don't have a limited time period, the ones made to be worn over and over again, getting better over the years like a good old bottle of wine! I'm literally craving for that kind of clothes; clothes that you're never tired of wearing, every time you're choosing them it's like a first date, full of emotion & excitement.

This Pre-collection is all about presenting a perfect wardrobe! I am dreaming of this impossible wardrobe! Womenswear staples are undergoing the Céline process like the jumpsuit, the argyle sweater, the fur coat, the dress, the pleated skirt; they all have a new perspective,  the Céline perspective. New pieces that are even more hybrid, more unique, to sum it up more Céline! It's a new vocabulary, a new expression of femininity expressed through the red dress, the pink dress, the leather coat, the slits in the wrapped skirt. This Pre-collection is a pure display of seduction where everything is not what it seems!

THE GLASSHOUSE


To be honest, we thought that being on holidays would give us the motivation to be constant & hardworking on our Blog. We definitely have things to say/write (about the latest Raf Simons collection or about the closure of Colette for instance), we have outfits of the day that could be posted yet we are feeling a huge huge need to take some time for us, with our friends & family and an even huger need to be lazy. We are not usually the kind of lazy persons but after all these intense months, we need to calm down, take some rest, visit our new city (we thought we already knew it well but our discoveries are endless!), think about what's next. So, dear readers, please excuse our idleness, our scarce posts and be sure we'll be back one day with a lot of stuff to write about and a lot to say about the crazy world of fashion.
In the meantime, enjoy this latest #ootd we shot a few days ago in the Jardin des Plantes in the 5th arrondissement.

COMME ON THE DANCEFLOOR BOYS!

Rei Kawakubo's collections are always celebrations. Celebrations of death, life, youth, separation, heroes or of punk culture. For the Spring Summer 2018 collection of Comme des Garçons Homme Plus, the message was clear: optimism. This was the celebration of party boys, from the catwalk to the dance floor in a way, an invitation to party hard in the salle Wagram, a place filled with emotions, with history as often with the designer & founder of Comme des Garçons. A place that means something where huge ceremonies, parties under Napoleon III were held. This is not at all a pretentious idea but instead it is a genuine will of bringing back the fashion show on the catwalk. Be less serious, less cerebral and just enjoy this F***ing moment; celebrate, dance as if you still were in the 90's. This collection is an expression of freedom translated into a wardrobe; a classic Comme tailoring  meeting riots of  prints/colors/textures, odd patchworks, a chaotic mix of prints (flowers, leopard, glitter, faux fur, tie & dye), an upside down tailoring with apparent lining. The clothes are definitely embodying this optimism, this freedom of expression, of creation.  Perhaps Rei Kawakubo has just revived the vibrant spirit of the Manchester raves? Her message can literally be associated with the state of our world: remain positive no matter what is happening out there, carry on & live your life, express yourself, be bold, take life as a huge party, enjoy it preciously, just cherish it. You could see/feel this message through the garments, with the boys embodying their roles, dancing on the catwalk, smiling in these beautiful clothes! After all these years, Rei still knows how to surprise us and contrary to many "lazy" designers for this SS18 season, she is still going forward and keeps on building a unique & completely fascinating storytelling!
