Well Documented Resort 2012 Celine by Phoebe Philo Floral Top or Jacket & Cropped Pant Suit

This is an extremely well documented set by Phoebe Philo from her Celine days. This was an amazing year for Phoebe. The week before this collection was show she accepted the International Award from the CFDA. Then she presented this collection and it was a hit and received rave reviews. Vogue said that "Philo is still pushing the wardrobe concept, covering the basics and then some. The thing is, in her hands nothing is ever basic: bold, or maybe even brave, is more like it." The twin of this set, with a jacket added over them was show for Look 6 and they were mentioned specifically in that review; "Philo is still pushing the wardrobe concept, covering the basics and then some. The thing is, in her hands nothing is ever basic: bold, or maybe even brave, is more like it... Her three-piece suit (jacket, pants, button-down) is cut in an oversize floral—her minimalist phase may be over." This look was a hit with the fashion set and it was used in several editorials that season. It is a fantastic set that is pristine and still feels off the rack new. 

It is so rare to find these two pieces selling together. You almost always see them sold separately and it might be worth it to the person who buys this to hunt down the matching jacket at some point as well. The set I have for you today is made up of  the pants and oversized button down. The fabric that she used for both pieces is a crisp cotton that holds the shape she wanted and that gorgeous bright floral print perfectly. The floral print covers the entire surface of for both pieces for a maximalist print on print feel. I love the boldness that this creates. The pants have a flat banded waist that is meant to sit slightly low on the hips and then the legs narrow down to a cropped peg leg. The top is cut with with a more oversized feel and the crispness of the cotton makes it feel almost like a light jacket/top. It has a small near collar and long straight sleeves. The sleeves both end in an exaggerated 5 1/2 inch narrow cuff. It is cut full and easy through the body with a straight long, feel to it. It buttons down the front and the buttons are hidden underneath a panel of the same fabric. The hem curves up at the sides with notches so you can easily tuck your hands into the pockets of the pants to get a cool slouchy feel. You can wear the pieces together for a strong statement or break up the set and wear them as separates with other pieces in your closet for lots of styling options. It looks to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition

Both pieces are unlined. The pants have a flat waist and a zipper and the top buttons to close. Each cuff button tends to close. Pockets on each hip of the pant and slit pockets at the back of the pants that are both still tacked into place. Both pieces are tagged a modern 38
