The Celine Effect

P1100635-26So much in fashion at the moment is in the effect of Phoebe Philo for Celine. Celine was originally launched in 1945 as a children’s made-to-measure shoe business. It expanded into adult footwear, handbags and women’s sportswear during the sixties.

For over forty years Celine was led by  Madame Céline Vipiana.  Michael Kors took the reins rom 1997 to 2004. In September 2008 the label announced that ex-Chloe designer Phoebe Philo would step in,  beginning with a fall 2009 collection. I love  sportswear separates. I am not a big “dress” person. Casual clothing works for me.

My ode to Celine is based on an out of print Vogue Pattern. I used Sophia double-knit fabric in Spanish Olive from Vogue Fabrics. The color goes with black, gray, blue or brown. It works with everything one would already own. I have enjoyed wearing it. I call it “Celine”.
