Céline S/S 2013

My knowledge of Céline is very limited so I was apprehensive to review it. From what I had seen and heard, I knew that the brand was very unique and rather avant-garde. The adverts in Vogue would capture me because they were so different to say, Louis Vuitton or Prada as they would appear so minimalist and simplistic. 

"There was something of the walk of shame about the lot, as well as the nineties up-all-night attitude..." as Jo-Ann Furniss states and I couldn't agree more. 

Glossy, satin materials emerged on the runway with broad, masculine silhouettes with a relaxed vibe. Plunging necklines with netted materials and trench coats with furry shoes that resembled slippers showed me that the Céline woman is not a princess-like figure whatsoever, she is a woman of strength and fierceness with a careless attitude and the ability to dress up elegantly when needs be. I understand why this brand has a huge following and look forward to reviewing further collections.
