Twists at Celine

Twists at Celine

Céline, SS13, Paris.

The Céline collection for Spring-Summer 2013 combined texture plays with slouched silhouettes to create garments that felt simultaneously luxurious and effortless. There was a certain gravity to the collection, created in no small part through the use of large twists that folded heavy satins across the body.

The heavy “evening wear” connotations of these glossy satin fabrics was off-set by the more casual insouciance of gestures such as stray raw hems. The high shine fabrics were also broken up when twisted with matt fabrics, lines of crinoline or overlaid over fabrics of contrasting colours.

Crinoline was an unusual choice in this context, as this type of crinoline is usually used for millinery purposes.
