Damn, you've "manned it up," Celine.

Phoebe Philo, the former fashion designer of Chloé made her debut with a bang at Celine S/S 2010. You could definitely see the strong Chloé influence, but I guess she just couldn't help it. I think it's a good move because over at Chloé, it was never really about the clothes but the accessories instead. Done are the days of flouncy femininity and what we now have are powerful modern women who dress the part too. Well, I do wish she kept a little bit of the romance that Celine seemed to embody under Ivana Omazic's reign.

This dress clearly comes from the inspiration of a lace-up boot. It's quite clever how they even added the tongue of a boot in there. I personally think the dress could do without the sleeves.

A leather that's a first. It's a little bit on the bizarre side, but from the look of the fit, it's quite remarkable. I love the silhouette of the wide leg pants; I don't know why more people aren't wearing them.

Is this a dress or are these separate pieces? I can't tell. Either way, it's very simple and clean-lined. The bottom is pleated but it's not flying all over the place, so you don't have to worry about having a "Marilyn Monroe moment."

This coat is beautiful all by itself. It's edgy but ever so wearable. The shape and texture are so rich that you can see right down to the intricate details .

I don't know what it is that makes this look so right. It might be the deep blue origami against Iris Strubegger's masculine beauty. Maybe it's the peek of white.

That leather bolero is striking! It adds just the right amount of drama to the white shirt and trousers. This is a new way of dressing, so run with it guys.
