I'm dying to read the comments about THE hat.
Strangely enough I quite like these looks, they'll look amazing in editorials and I could let myself be tempted by those shes. I especially the last outfit but again I don't know why she keeps with those oversized silhouettes. It seems like she's more and more keeping away from her defined feminine style. Actually I don't really see the aesthetic she has established for the house here nor where she's going. ( we're back to the 80's again ??)

Will be interesting to see the rest of the collection. But if this is any indication, I can't say that I'll like it. I loved her last collection (Spring/Summer 2013) and hoped that what would come next would follow in that same vein. Granted, this is looser and less shapely, like Spring/Summer 2013, but there's something kind of twee about this that I find really unappealing (that boater hat is doing nothing to help).
It's almost as if this looks like any other contemporary (in particular, New York) brand of today doing their best - yet ultimately, rather poor - imitation of Celine.
after phoebe being mediocre for a few collections, this seems to be really really nice. Not on par with her first 4 collections, but nontheless the best thing she's done since f/w 11. (so it seems, ill reserve final judgement until i see all the pictures)
I'm strangely attracted to all of it, even those straw hats I love this so much more than her spring collection, which I felt was a strange departure from the style she had been establishing for the house.
