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.

Charlie by Craig Arend.

Did you know model Charlie Paille graduated with a major in fashion design and has her own clothing line? Craig Arend, the “Models Off Duty” photographer follows the Canadian around for the day.

Many girls in America grew up reading Seventeen. I certainly did. If you’re between the ages of 15-22, check out their “Pretty Amazing” contest to be on the cover of the magazine! It’s very easy to enter – just write a short essay on your accomplishments and why you are pretty amazing and you get a chance for the COVER – and also a $10,000 scholarship. Miranda Cosgrove and Just Jared’s Jared Eng are 2 of the judges. 5 finalists get to come to New York.

The super talented hat designer Heather Huey whose creations were (seen in our recent Siki Im fashion week story) has a studio sale this Saturday, check it out.

Anna Dello Russo is so awesome, she gives us her top 10 tips on how to dress if you’re going to the nuptials of the 2 fabulous Kates (Middleton and Moss). We’re going, aren’t you? So kidding.

New designer Sara Badaarani’s F/W 11 collection is a breath of fresh air, declares Sans Artifice. We certainly concur, looking at these strong yet ultra feminine clothes.

Is it me or is everyone under the age of 30 sporting these headphones by Dr. Dre? Check out Charlie Westerberg, sporting them, in these Andrew Weir photographs for Jeffrey Fashion Cares.


Attention fashion fiends, Carven‘s first boutique opens in Paris at 36 rue Saint Sulpice. Designed to look more like a living space than a traditional store, the elegant space boasts the full selection of accessories and ensembles by Guillaume Henry. Fun fact, the visual identity of Carven’s new store was created by Eric Chevallier, the man behind Colette’s atmospheric and funky feel.

Our favorite young art directors, Magnus Berger and Tenzin Wild (also founders of The Last Magazine), designed this logo (below) for this weekend’s Fashion Girls for Japan sample sale/fundraiser. From the organizer, Kanako: “In effort to show our support for the recent earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan and also to cheer up our friends and families in Japan, a mega sample sale will be held on April 2nd and 3rd at Bowery Hotel. More than 60 New York based designers are donating samples to raise money.”
