Céline Fall and Winter 2015 showed on International Women’s Day in Paris to the soundtrack of Brazilian musician Caetano Veloso. “The best part of this job is finding out more about myself, it gets deeper and deeper into the roots” said Phoebe Philo after the show. “Dressed-up-ness, I was never in the headspace to approach it before. I find glamour and sexuality awkward. When do they feel authentic? What’s real, what’s not?” The models walked on a runway made of terra-cotta tiles from a villa in Rio, which cracked as the models walked on them. And the collection? Simply fabulous.
