Hoy vamos con otro bolso de la casa de Celine, que es sus pocos años de vida ya ha tenido tiempo de crear varios IT BAGS. Tras el Trio y el Trapeze vamos a ver el Classic box.
Aquí os dejo la historia de Celine por la Voguepedia:
“Everything we’re doing is about going forward,” Phoebe Philo told Vogue in 2009, shortly before showing her first collection for Céline. Although the label had garnered headlines when it was revived by Michael Kors in the late nineties, it was Philo who truly brought the till-then-somewhat-somnambulant luxury house to the forefront. Critics credited her with pushing fashion in a new direction, towards a more spare, stripped-down kind of sophistication. What Céline now offered women was, as the magazine put it, “a grown-up and hip way to put themselves together.”
“I just thought I’d clean it up,” Philo said, in an interview during those early days. “Make it strong and powerful—a kind of contemporary minimalism.”
Though Céline was founded in Paris way back in 1945, when Céline and Richard Vipiana opened a custom shoe shop for children in Paris, its modern incarnation dates to 1969, when the Vipianas began selling ready-to-wear. “It was never a flighty little minx of a brand,” Vicki Woods wrote in Vogue in 2009. “Over its 64-year history . . . it’s always been very polished, very French, equestrienne-chic.”
Luxe sportswear with couture-like finishing was, and is, Céline’s raison d’être. “Céline is not a brand for spectacle, it’s a brand for real life,” Serge Brunschwig, an LVMH executive who briefly ran the company, told Women’s Wear Daily in 2006. And so while Philo’s championing of understatement might have been interpreted as—and might have functioned as—an attempt to realign the prevailing values of the industry, she was, in fact, putting the emphasis back on the core fundamentals of Céline. She was able to shed a lot of postmillennial nonsense and frivolity without abandoning what she described to T: The New York Times Style magazine as a quintessentially Parisian mood of “elegance, decadence, and those saucy, steamy Belle de Jour women that I find really seductive.” Thanks to Philo, the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie continues to, well, charm.
