In contrast to some of the more subdued minimalism that Céline has become known for, Phoebe Philo’s collection for Spring-Summer 2014 felt altogether more guttural, drawing on the photography of Brassaï as a reference to create textiles dripping with thread and marked by bold woven and printed brushstrokes.

The image below gives an example of one of Brassaï’s photographs from 1944-45, and you can read more about the interesting story behind this image at The Metropolitan Museum of Art»

On the surface, the Céline collection was defined by gestural textile designs, as well as haphazardly draped garments and asymmetrical pieces that gave the overall collection a feeling of freedom and spontaneity. As ever with the Céline collections, on closer inspection the garments were filled with carefully considered details and construction choices that made the most of the graphic textiles, vibrant colour palette and geometric accessories.
