Here’s the backstory, if you didn’t know it: Phoebe Philo was at Celine for ten years, and her work was much beloved by rich ladies in the market for chic, non-flashy French-feeling rich person clothing to wear to work and elsewhere you might want to look chic and also competent. (A group in which I would include myself, except for the part where I could not afford it! But EMOTIONALLY, I was right there.) She stepped down, and Hedi Slimane took over and his runway show previous to this, his debut, was a shitshow — VERY off-brand for the line, but SUPER on-brand for him, AKA flashy and short (FWIW, I also hated what he did at Saint Laurent). HOWEVER. Apparently, Slimane can take a note — probably not from the press, but possibly from his bosses (and also, I suspect, he might have been scared by the fact the Calvin Klein canned Raf Simons after Simons did to CK what Slimane was in the middle of doing to Celine). Because this feels WAY more on-brand — Vogue, in fact, argues that it’s a major throwback to the very, very beginning of the brand. Regardless: Now I wish I had the money for Celine again, so congrats! Looking bored in jeans and a cape and aviator glasses is my JAM.
