Admittedly, all of the pieces that incorporate that draped 'tied in a knot' look I despise.. but this is probably due to my fashion control freak nature, as is evident with my love for the exquisite tailoring also in this collection.
I agree with
with thinking this is her weakest collection, due to the lack of desireable, or at least with what has been expected of Celine, trendsetting pieces. The drape and the net make the collection bad, the net looks cheap and poorly done especially in that plunging neck dress.
The shoes are the weakest part unfortunately, as much as I love Schiaparelli-esque shoes I hate the idea of Philo giving in to gimmicks, and she needn't! I imagine her designs sell incredibly well and they're never boring, so why did she need red mink shoes?
I think the redeeming factor was the fabric; could she have chosen a much more luxurious type of silk? It actually glimmered.. and when it wrapped together and tied around a neck it had that expensive weight of the silk used to make an Hermes scarf. If I go to Harrods this season I'll be visiting Celine to feel the fabric, not to be inspired by the designs, unfortunately.
