On May 2, Céline shared the images of its Pre Fall 2018 collection. Photographed by Juergen Teller, it is a collection that shows, as if it were an album of successes, the essence of the fashion house: dresses, oversized trousers or raincoats made of leather in black, wine and olive green colours; a black tuxedo, a navy blue jumpsuit, wool sweaters, a white shirt, giant totes with the printed logo, gold earrings with emerald details, a pair of tennis shoes, some plastic boots (because the fashion house has always shown a curiosity to experiment with those shoes) and some wine colored pumps.
In other words, this collection is the ideal wardrobe for the Philophiles — the faithful followers of Phoebe Philo. This collection is also the designer's last one for the brand: in December, Céline announced the departure of Philo, with Hedi Slimane replacing her and presenting his first collection in October. "What will we wear now?" was the question that exploded in the industry when the announcement of Philo's departure was made. It is a difficult one to answer.
