I love to discuss all of the fabulous things going on in fashion that I read about (like the New Yorker’s recent and wonderfully entertaining profile of Thomas Meier, the creative director of Bottega Veneta), as opposed to partake in. She goes on buying trips to all the big fashion houses in Europe often, and she snapped these pictures of Celine’s fall collection of the Luggage Bag. And I am swooooohhhhning.
Do you see the “Minis” (bottom left, tan and bottom right maroon) mixed in with the regulars? Can you see the green one in the center and the two-tone peach one on bottom–they’re python! I think the leopard is fantastic, but if I were to have one of my own… it would have to be the beige and black two-tone, upper right. Anyways, mark my words: Céline is already a super hot brand, but under Phoebe Philo‘s direction they will just keep going straight up.
Also, I have a girl crush on Phoebe.
How amazing are her cheek bones? Here she is (below) accepting British Fashion Awards 2010 Designer of the Year.
How does she make all-black look so great? Mental note: where more all black. By the way, I find it so surprising that the creative director of such an iconic French brand lives in London.
Please dear Lord can I look this adorably amazing when I’m pregnant? I love that she stuck to her signature black, but added sequins and a bow!
I think she looks incredibly fresh-faced for 37, don’t you agree she doesn’t look much older than 17? Okay, enough crushing for one day! Off to my Friday night: Eric Clapton, HK edition. But, yes, I am donning all black. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
