Fabulous Resort 2017 Celine by Phoebe Philo Look 2 Runway Cut Out Palest Green Crepe Dress
I think at this point in time everyone pretty much recognizes certain Celine pieces from the Phoebe Philo days and this incredible dress is one of those pieces. It is an iconic piece and its twin was presented for Look 2 in the Resort 2017 show. Vogue said of the collection 'Truth be told, Resort and pre-collections are the places Philo has always secreted away her best—meaning most durably fashion-proof—clothes. This time, there are some quite radical proportions going on. What catches the eye most in the new lineup is Philo’s swaggeringly womanly tailoring'. As with the Spring show Phoebe avoided all press and it drove all the fashion journalists mad. But it did not matter because her clients were loyal to a fault and still are. They hunted down her work whether it was published everywhere or not. Her work has spoken for itself ever since and still garners the same devotion if not more. This is an incredibly collectible piece of her work and it looks to have never been worn and is in its original supermodel length.
This is an easy dress to wear and is instantly recognized as one of hers. It is made out of a pale pastel green crepe that has a subtle touch of blue to its tone. The colour is even better on person than how it photoed. The crepe has a bit of a woven linen feel to it that gives it a beautiful organic feeling texture. The dress is sleeveless and the top has volume that is meant to sit over you and fall where It falls. The neckline is cut slightly iff centre so that it sits up and around the neck a bit and top of the dress has a little extra volume so that it falls in a bit of a slouch. From there is begins to widen out with an easy cut waist and fuller hips. By the time it reaches the hem it is quite wide and this gives it a lovely movement when you move. There is an extra please of fabric down he one side that help to add even more volume. The attention is brought up to the face with those gorgeous cuts out. There is a curing shape cut out near the collarbone on one side and then a larger more oblong shape runs down the other side. It is just the exact right amount of skin for a Celine girl to have and you can just imagine her thought process in playing with the volume and way this one falls. Iconic. Excellent condition
