Phoebe Philo must be moonlighting as a psychic for quite some time or has a natural talent for it like she has for many other things because how else can you explain the release date of the Resort collection? God knows we deliberately need something to cheer us up today and for some people that thing is, well, a new Céline collection that would make us look forward to the future. A future where our favorite brands Céline, Vetements, Loewe, Jacquemus and Ellery finally merge into each other, making it easier and cheaper for us to shop. All in one, one for all.
I don’t remember falling more in love with a Céline collection, especially a spring summer collection before and that says a lot in my book. As the years passed, Phoebe Philo somehow turned Céline into a style phenomenon that gets less minimal yet more refined and relaxed at the same time, all in all a nonconformist, perfectly balanced parade of everyday women. I don’t think that, at this point, it’s too early or too ambitious to call her one of the top 10 designers that shaped fashion as we know it. She’s an invisible logo on collections that don’t need an explanation.
There’s no denying neither Vetements’s success nor the incapability of understanding Vetements’s success but one thing’s clear: everyone wants a piece (or at least wants the style; the rise of Levi’s 501s, spike heel boots, huge shoulders, extra long sleeves, sweatshirts are all thanks to Demna Gvasalia). But there was one collection even the most devoted fans didn’t know about, the fall 2014 collection Gvasalia had to show in his Paris apartment where everyone involved got paid in clothes (I call that a good investment) and now the designer is re-imagining the first ever Vetements collection for the relaunch of Style.com. Want to add a little more quirkiness to the good news? Just visit the new Vetements website.
I’m yet to see a Marni collection that I don’t like, to be honest I have this positive bias towards anything Consuelo Castiglioni does, but the spring/summer 2017 collection added a whole new dimension to that little obsession. Asymmetric pleats, pouch fanny packs, one shoulders and fall layering all re-imagined and mastered under Castiglioni’s one of a kind vision, this probably is one of the strongest collections of this fashion month.
It’s totally OK if this the first time you’re hearing the name Rejina Pyo but if it’s the first time you’re seeing her pieces, then you must have been looking elsewhere during fashion week because the street style is ALL ABOUT HER now. She is hotter than Céline or JW Anderson or Gucci or any other designer you can think of. From Leandra Medine to Kate Foley, Pandora Sykes to Yasmin Sewell and Camille Cherriere; every single it girl already owns a piece from the S/S 2017 collection and the rest of the more *real* show goers are sporting the shoes and dresses from the fall one so it’s not one of those designer’s good blogger friends helping her get famous thing, she’s officially the next big thing and everyone’s on board.
