Warm & Cozy 2000s Celine by Pheobe Philo Cream Sweater Dress w High Neck
i think at this point in time everyone pretty much recognizes certain Celine pieces from the Phoebe Philo days and her knit dresses are definitely some of the most recognizable. It is just a joy to see knits done to this level when so many are synthetic fabrics now. Besides being a gorgeous piece of fashion history it is just a wonderful dress
The dress is made from a beautiful knit that feels like a wool, cashmere and silk mix. It has a very dense weave to it and has a wonderful feeling weight. It is made with the absolute minimal seaming. Where there is a seam she made it into a design detail so that you have these perfect lines running down the dress that add just the perfect little touch. The colour is a gorgeous ivory and in person it is richer and better then how it photoed. The dress has a high collar that frames the face. The top edge of the collar is finished with a subtle curve under that again gives it that perfect subtle little detail. The sleeves are cut extra long and meant to be worn bunched up on the arm. Each cuff ends in a wide ribbing. It skims over the body and past the hips to land about mid-calf to just above the ankles depending on your height. It slightly flares out at the hem. It is a beauty. Excellent condition with one small note below
Unlined and slips on to wear. No size tag present. It feels like a wool, cashmere and silk mix. The fabric does have some stretch so should fit a range of sizes.

Once the sleeves are bunched up properly it disappears.
