Spring 2013: Celine

Minimalists still haven't moved away from the hey days of Helmut Lang and Ann Dem (1994 anyone?) except to make things look abit more ill-fitting. I think this instinct is evident in the concept slide isn't it? Not only is it determinely unlike the show-stopping baroque platforms of the shoes today, they are actually the soul/sole of ugly - you can hardly call them utilitarian!

Phoebe Philo in her I-don't-need-to-be-charming-or-please-anyone mode - is it a comment on the breathless ignorance of today's fashion slave?
