Runway Report: Celine Fall 2016

In a time when season no longer really matters, Phoebe Philo presents a collection that is functional, effective and easily seasonless.  It was all about practicality and fundamentals, which realistically is how it all started for the designer: she first became famous for impeccably tailored trousers, the perfect shirt, and the ultimate utility overcoat. “It’s a busy world, and I find I have this idea of stillness with Céline,” she said backstage to media.

Most of the Fall 2016 collection, from tunics worn over wide leg trousers to shirtdresses, and button-down vests over loose blouses, seemed to convey just that – stillness and ease, walkability and flow – yet there were still a few remarkable shapes like an exaggerated (black) shimmery bubble short sleeve sweater, over a pale yellow turtleneck and loose trousers in the same shade.  The geometric tailoring Philo is known for continues to rule her runway – leaving her fans delighted, once again.
