Celine Resort 2012

Well I definitely saved the best for last for this Resort 2012. Overwhelmed by the perfection of this collection I continued to put off reviewing it. If you follow my collection reviews than you have probably already noticed that I usually choose 3 or so hero looks to create a collage with and then a find other looks from each collection that I feel are the strongest and tell the seasons story best. Very rarely, at the moment I really can not even think of an example of any other designer besides

Phoebe Philo for Celine, that does not get edited in these reviews. The women is a genius! It really amazes time and time again how she can continue to find this perfect balance of pacified cool and ultra chic and repackage it in a way that makes me want each look. I think one major secret about her design philosophy is probably that she is not trying to reinvent the wheel each time. Her focus is purely on dressing women in, and projecting the dichotomy that is innate to her. Love Love and absolutely love every look of this collection!
