Celine...simply gorgeous, Banana Republic, affordable

Former Chloe designer Phoebe Philo unveiled her first collection for Celine last year to much critical acclaim, as you can see from the photos key pieces include leather t shirt and muted colours as well as some killer open toe wedge.

Susy Menkes from the Telegraph says:
After a four-year maternity break, Philo has had time to gain clarity about what’s missing from fashion: solid tailoring, fantastic coats, well-cut trousers, a way of no-fuss dressing that exudes dignified good taste, and makes a woman feel sorted and sexy with it.

Menkes goes onto inform us that the prices at Celine have now gone into the 'luxury' bracket ie not affordable in the slightest!

Luckily, Banan Republic have created a fab collection for ss10 which features muted tones, an interesting take on the trench coat, denim shirts and open toe wedges which each item coming in at less than £100. Check out the below pictures from BR's website or check out the Banana Republic stores on London's Regent Street or at Brent Cross.
