Some say that menswear for women is a lingering trend, some say it’s back, and some argue it never left in the first place. What is indisputable is how it has essentially transformed the couture runways, especially in the case of Phoebe Philo’s pre-fall collection for Céline. Smokin’ hot cigarette slacks. Mod mocknecks. Tailored trenches. Corset jumpsuits. Amazing. And each fabric choice is deliberate, yet exciting all the same.

Highlights include pieced together Japanese raw denim, foxtail embellishments on envelope clutches, camouflaged Harris and Shetland tweeds, and iridescent PVC paneling on boxy coats. You can find the complete collection in all its glory, as well as Nicole Phelps’s review, here.
