I like flashing a hint of skin every now and then. A peek of a shoulder, a backless dress or a bit of leg. I’m also a fan of the fugly things in life. I don’t like clothes that are too form fitting or heels that are too spindly. Instead I prefer chunky and loose. And that’s why the Céline pre fall collection just gets me.
It’s structured but not rigid and has a definite slouchy feel. The trousers are cut to sit high on the waist and then wide at the leg.
The khaki colour gives a regimental military feel and the fact that there’s no skin exposed here makes it feel even sexier. It’s all about the power of suggestion.
This dress is everything. The a-line skirt, the wrap-style top with the side cut outs, the mix of materials, textures and patterns, and let’s not forget the importance of pockets.
Let’s end on what I’m calling a bit of granny chic. The autumnal colours, the deep v layer, the exposed shoulders, the way it hits right before the ankle, I’m infatuated.
Thank you Céline, for just getting me.
