I’ve decided some time ago that I wouldn’t post about new collections that anyone can find anywhere, meaning no big brands, no show stealers, only stuff people might have missed and maybe learning about for the first time here. However I felt the deepest urge to break my own rule when I saw the Céline Spring 2018 collection for the first time, then the second time, the third time… I realized the Céline collections are never just “new collections” to me, they guide me whenever I want to shop for new season, they give me styling inspirations and help me recreate my existing wardrobe over and over again. Philo’s woman is one that can never get bored of the Céline essence, the essence that’s all one needs to dress up every day. I haven’t discovered Céline but it’s my favorite, always.
Three weeks has passed and Jacquemus managed to be the first collection that dazzled me with every single piece. The styling, the details – Simon Porte Jacquemus got inspired once again by his late mother and her days in the village with a scarf around her head, ceramic earrings and a pareo tied around her waist. His mother has been his muse since day one, because he lost him at a very young age, and I think that’s how he managed to stay true to his aesthetic even though the is creating conceptually different collections each season. It has always been about her; her house, her clothes, her attitude. He has his story to tell and we are just happy to be invited to be a part of it.
