Double Vision: Celine

November 28th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one designer who knows how to get women (and men) excited it is Phoebe Philo and her continued success at Celine is a testament to her ability to tap into the pulse of what women want. For F/W Philo went in a graphic direction, with primary shades, bold color blocking and a mixes of texture, from matte leather to plush fur. One of the most editorially beloved pieces from the Celine collection was the Geometric Intarsia Sweater, a playful clash of mink and leather that succinctly merged the essence of the entire collection into a single item. If another designer were to throw together that many things on one top it might seem overwrought, or ridiculous but Phoebe Philo keeps the look minimal.

Most stylists didn’t stray too far from that ideal, pairing the sweaters with either the runway approved striped trousers, or an equally understated crisp white skirt. Most of the time what stands out are the accessories and add ons, be they gleaming silver cuffs, avant garde headgear or the label’s coveted Trapeze Bag. Take a look at the way in which several different teams interpreted the Celine look and subsequently the sleek mood of the season.

Vogue takes on the pastel trend with a spirited story by Raymond Meier featuring Anais Pouliot. Accessories take center stage as Elissa Santisi breaks out the big guns with pieces from YSL, Prada and Proenza. A wide arrange of luxurious tech add-ons also feature, because who doesn’t need a Valentino case for their Blackberry?

As always Anais brings her combo of girlish sweetness and sensuality to the table, making her first only girl Vogue story a standout.

Well Suited

July 12th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Elissa Santisi loves a good pair of pants, no wonder the superstar stylist dressed Liu Wen in a series of gorgeous suits from the fall collections in the new Vogue China. Camilla Akrans shoots Liu in the latest menswear inspired looks from Chloe, Givenchy and more but fashion lovers may get a sense of deja vu with the Altuzarra shot – very Tom Ford for Gucci, no?
