PFW FALL 2017

Céline Trades In It Bags for Enormous Blankets and Printed Trench Coats

Photographed by Landon Nordeman

Céline may have recently joined Instagram, but the brand’s Creative Director Phoebe Philo still isn’t about to play by the rules. As usual, the famously private designer declined post-show interviews after Céline’s Fall 2017 outing at Paris Fashion Week, leaving guests to guess why they were seated on slowly rotating bleachers, which over the course of the show turned a full 360 degrees. However, per usual the clothes spoke for themselves: there were oversized menswear looks, like suits with wide lapels hosting button-ups’s exaggerated collars; leather hoods that looked buttery soft; prints like a trench coat topped off with a map; and, rather than the next it bag, enormous blankets draped over models’s arms that functioned as much more of a statement, especially the one that added a dose of kelly green to Liya Kebede. Take it all in from backstage, here.
