Painterly pleated Celine Spring Summer 2014 at PFW

 
Celine SS2014 200 Designer Phoebe Philo reinvents the Celine look with painterly pleated prints and primary colours for a bold new Spring Summer 2014 collection

What will you be wearing next season? This year's colourful tribal print craze will give way to an even more abstract look in 2014, if this trend-setting Celine Spring Summer 2014 is any indication.

Your new season wardrobe looks set to take an altogether less minimalistic turn. Even Phoebe Philo, the queen of understated elegance, has gone big on colours and graphic prints for next season. Raw, curving brushstrokes are streaked across tops, dresses and skirts as the 'it' prints for Celine Spring Summer 2014.

As Philo showed, layering is a must for Spring Summer 2014’s new silhouette. Wear a sheer pleated skirt underneath your big coat, or extend the hemline of your dress with an asymmetrical pleated skirt, one that cascades like the ends of a split mermaid's tail.

The sportswear inspiration, so key in recent seasons, won't be going away anytime soon either, as shown on the Celine runway. Stock up on the updated polo dresses and shirts; the latter now sport wide sleeves, some with frayed ends. Netting is another creative layering idea, suggests Philo and her fisherman-like web is worn over and under tank tops and dresses.

Despite the transformation, the market-savvy designer has not done away with her fans’ favourite coats and blazers, some of which were decked with circular rivets for the season. Similar cutouts with metal accents on tops revealed the eye-popping prints between the layers.

Philo’s play with geometric shapes was most discernible on the Celine shoes and accessories. Cubic bangles were layered up as “arm swag” and paired with matching necklaces. Bags came in reconstructed shapes, with square handles. Shoes had chunky, hollowed-out heels, rectangular platforms and oversized circular buckles. One of the most striking slingbacks had a metal globe in lieu of the block heel.

Celine’s Phoebe Philo has done it again with a catwalk full of looks no matter what your style or your age, you are sure to lust after for the season ahead.

The Celine Spring Summer 2014 show took place on September 29, 2013 at Paris Fashion Week.
