Art nouveau

Celine SS14 campaign by Juergen Teller
Celine SS14 campaign by Juergen Teller

So I think I speak for everyone when I say that I'm extremely relieved to see that in the world of Phoebe Philo, Juergen trumps Miley (this despite obvious lack of twerking skillz - though both admittedly share a penchant for awkward out-of-place nudism). Few, what a relief! I'm not sure whether I could cope with yet another pop icon as the face of one of my favourite houses (cough cough Olivier!). 

What with the new raucous aesthetic, I did wonder for a minute whether the official imagery for SS14 might also forgo the usual lineup to allow for a fresh new start. A blank canvas, it certainly is - but the  dream team is still the headlining act.

And what an act! Their best performance yet? Indisputably so. 

It sure wasn't love at first sight, but I take it all back. The campaign needs to be blown up and donated to the MoMa (slash my living room). My favourite shot (pictured above) features Julia Nobis photobombing her friend (so very generation 2.0) in an explosion of vivid abstract print and wearable art, as she breaks out of the set frame and away from conventional fashion boundries. A true masterpiece, in every sense of the word. 

Standing ovation to you, Phoebe. As usual.

  5. I agree with you in every single word. I wasn't (like you) blown away of this collection but I knew it was just a matter of time before I would change my mind..


  6. Totally agree, this is the best shot from the campaign. Also love it. When I first saw the collection I totally was not a fan but it has really grown on me. It's my favourite of the season hands down. xx

  7. Such a cool campaign!

  10. The more I look at it the more I like it - one of the most eyecatching campaigns I guess. Cheers to Phoebe for standing out, again!


  11. Amazing campaign!! It look like a Ysl Mondrian dress design revisited in by Céline in a fauvism style!!
    A real work of art!! I'm just in love!!
