Lookbook 29

All Black Céline

Everyone knows people who buy designer clothes are shallow assholes. But it looks like everyone is a shallow asshole. People apparently hold other people in higher regard simply if they’re wearing clothes with a designer label. And I have come to the point where I want my clothes to speak for themselves.

Everyone knows people who buy designer clothes are shallow assholes. But it looks like everyone is a shallow asshole. People apparently hold other people in higher regard simply if they’re wearing clothes with a designer label. And I have come to the point where I want my clothes to speak for themselves. Like so many fans of fashion, I have an shameless love for the French label Céline. And while it may be spring time (and soon to be summer), black will forever and always be my first love when it comes to the color scheme.

So do I wear designer? – Yes. Do I only wear designer? – No. But there are some specific reasons why I wear these labels; exclusiveness, good fabric, and durability. Of course designer clothes are made to reflect class and they may be costly, but they are personalized for every person. They aren’t made in bulk in factories, which creates their exclusiveness. More time is taken into each and every piece, which supports the use of good fabric and durability.

There are so many people that tell me they want to buy designer labels but don’t exactly know what to buy… Need a trouser suit? Then it will have a boxy tailored jacket or coat, with wide, cropped kick flares. The jacket, Philo from Vogue suggests, might be worn over a long printed skirt. For a summer day dress, there were long-sleeved midis with full skirts. With them, the perfect bag for women who are embarrassed to carry an It bag—a classy, gimmick-free top-handled frame handbag, which looked as if it might have come from the Céline archive.

What I think draws people (women in particular) into Céline is their nonconformist taste level. For me personally, it’s the brilliant color scheme – neutrals. Witnesses from Céline’s Spring 2017 Ready-To-Wear Collection say the same thing, “All in all, there was a sense that a Céline woman could go anywhere she needs in these clothes—to the school gate in the trainers, to a meeting in the tailoring, to a gallery opening or a cocktail party—without feeling either underdressed or overdone. It was fashion on an intuitive, clever, understanding wavelength.” You know it when you see it—no explanation needed. Until next time…
