S/S 2017 Phoebe Philo for Celine Runway Highly Documented Draped Jersey Dress
I honestly do not think that there is a dress that was more photoed then this Spring 2017 dress. When I started to hunt for references for it I found all the ones that are here, plus there are perhaps a dozen more that I just do not have the space to include. If you do a quick Google or Pinterest search you will see many, many more. That combined with the recent wearing of the dress by Pixie Geldolf and the backlash and controversy of Hedi Slimane rebranding Celine, has once again put Phoebe Philo's Celine pieces back on the map. This particular dress to the forefront once again.
The dress is made from a stretch jersey and is a bright salmon pink in color. The bodice is fitted with a V neck at both the front and back, and no sleeves. The skirt is set under this and here is where the magic of Pheobe's vision begins. The skirt widens out into a loose and easy draping of jersey, but instead of ending at the hem, it extends past that and into a long looped panel. The jersey is one extra long panel of fabric that is sewn to create a loop with an opening in the middle. The ends of the loop are gathered and sewn for a touch of structure. Once you have slipped on the dress and stepped through this loop you sling the closed end over a shoulder or around your neck so that it hangs and drapes down. The jersey then balloons out when you walk creating an endless arrays of shapes. It is incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. The jersey has a lot of stretch so the size on the tag is almost meaningless. This one is a 38 but will easily fit a range of sizes from probably about a 4 to an 8 with ease. This is true fashion history and one of the most documented pieces I have ever seen. A testament to the genius of Phoebe and the impact of her work on fashion. Excellent condition
The top is made of a double layer of the same jersey and the skirt and loop a single layer. It has a hidden set side zipper and is tagged a 38. It still has part of its original hang tag and has not been worn other then for my shoot with it. The fabric has incredible stretch so will fit a large range of sizes. Note the color is a touch brighter in person
