Oh, Céline!

I eagerly waited to see how Phoebe Philo envisioned the Céline woman for the next fall/winter season. I couldn’t have been happier with the result: femininity and functionality merging into one.

I selected some of my favorite looks and you can see them below. Please let me add that those boots and coats are definitely something to crave for!
