I was shopping around at Arraya complex when suddenly! Lo and behold... there they were, this season’s most coveted items from one of the most incredible designers of our generation were right there in front of me, the crisply chic safari jacket, the impeccably sharp collarless white shirt neatly tucked in high-waisted, wide-legged pants, the clog-ish/wedge sandals, and the canvas & leather day bag in palette of camel, navy blue, and khaki. Yes my dear readers, those were the latest Céline S/S 2010 collection designed by the super genius Phoebe Philo.
There is this incredible aura about Philo. Anything she touches turns into gold. Remember her designs for Chloé? Almost every piece on the runway was just perfect. And this legacy continued with Céline’s latest collections. Practical, timeless, and flattering, just what every woman wants.
According to the sales assistant at Céline’s boutique, the new collection has arrived almost a week ago. Needless to say that I spent at least two hours inside the store (God bless the sales assistant) and unfortunately, the short sleeved leather top was not available. But that's OK, I got over it with a snap after seeing this and Céline’s classic box bag (you can see it in the last photo peeping behind the canvase tote).
