Heir To The Box?
It’s not only in ready-to-wear that Celine’s Phoebe Philo has made a deep impression. As anyone who’s taken a look at street-style photos, magazine editorials, or shop windows can tell you, Philo’s a near saint among accessory obsessives. So we had our eyes peeled for the bags and shoes she’d show on her Spring ’11 runway, and they don’t disappoint. The structured Classic box bag gave pride of place to a looser, floppier envelope style, which can be carried as an oversized clutch or worn with its strap as a day bag; it turned up in pristine white and a deep, rich burgundy. And the simple sandals that were an editor favorite this season—we saw millions of pairs during fashion week—have been dressed up, but only a little: They closely resemble the jute-colored heels on the runway, accentuated with a metal chain detail.
