“Celine Rita is unapologetic about letting girls dress like girls; For Celine Rita, it’s about having fun with what you wear with colour, texture and striking prints.”
I love Celine Rita’s Winter 2011 collection; Dance to Your Own Tune; which draws inspiration from sixties muse Edie Sedgewick. Celine imagines that Edie sobered up and lived into the 70’s (rather falling victim to a drug related incident), capturing the sartorial expression of a hyper-real Sedgewick in her collection.
Effortless edginess is translated into maxi skirts & dresses, with splashes of velvet, luxe capes and a bright pop of yellow; prettied up with florals and lace. The end result is both wearable, and a little bit off-beat… just like someone dancing to their own tune.
