This one - I want to wear it all! I am not going to write an in-depth review about Celine's a/w 2012 collection, you can read a great one over at style.com, lets just say I think this must have been one of my favourites. Phoebe Philo is pregnant with her third child, and thus for the sake of herself and her unborn child she and the company agreed on doing a low key presentation for a handful of guests only. How great is this. A modern company (pseudo modern male run companies take note!) that are well aware of their greatest human resource and take care of it! I am all for companies who value their employees because more than often it unfortunately still is the case, that if you are in a great position and you are expecting a child, or let me put it like this, if you're a woman with a career and a womb you will sometimes automatically have to require a lawyer to go with it. That said, I liked the edginess of this collection, punky zest as style.com calls it, I liked the zippers, I liked the colour and material combinations, the cocoony silhouettes, and I wish Phoebe Philo all the best for the birth of her third child and hopefully no gastly empire lines next season! She threatened to make these if her weight didn't come off quick enough after the birth! Brilliant!

I love Celine and I agree the zips are such a great touch, I also love the pink with brown-redish leather!

Completely agree with you: it was another great collection of wearable, edgy and chic clothes. Regarding the decision to go for a small show, not sure if it was a great marketing opportunity for LVMH or a great demonstration of Philo's ability to do fashion at her conditions. I think it's a mix of both...

PS: When I got my leather jacket, the only thing that bothered me was the silver shade of the zip because I thought it was too visible...I was so wrong when I look at the stylish effect of these Celine zips...
