Céline Dion has been busy. Just four months ago, the singer celebrated her thousandth show in residency at Las Vegas’s Colosseum theater at Caesar’s Palace, and she’s showing no signs of stopping yet. Then, this week, she unveiled her new handbag and accessories line (aptly named Céline Dion Collection after the superstar herself) at a presentation as part of the Project Women’s Trade Show in Las Vegas, a presentation that highlights women’s design businesses. The Céline Dion Collection comprises nearly 200 different pieces at an accessible price point, aimed at women on the go; she told WWD she designed with her mom, herself, and your average businesswoman in mind. She’s managed to do it all in the wake of the deaths of both her husband and longtime manager René Angelil and her brother Daniel last year, which reportedly — and naturally — devastated the singer.
Now that Dion is also a designer in addition to an iconic musician, she’s armed with the high-powered look to match. A Schiaparelli power suit (power-romper?) with thigh-high boots — count us in.
Who: Céline Dion.
When: Tuesday, February 21.
Where: The launch of her new eponymous handbag and accessories line in Las Vegas, Nevada.
What: An ivory wool jacket with a pierced heart across the front, a matching ivory romper with tonal heart patches, a silk camisole, and red suede thigh-high boots, paired with one of her own bags.
Why: When Dion wore that Vetements Titanic sweatshirt last summer during Paris Couture, she set off a social media frenzy. (Dion was, after all, the most welcomed sight in the front rows at the Fall 2016 couture shows.) This time, the allusion to Titanic might be a bit more subliminal — her heart will go on? — while the allusion to power suiting is anything but. Dion reimagines classic business attire — a wool suit — in Paris couture fashion.
