There’s no doubt that Phoebe Philo took the skate from the street to the runway, forever elevating the humble shoe into a fashion essential no one’s closet should be without. And with everyone from high-street labels to luxury houses coming out with their own variations ever since, Céline isn’t resting on her laurels either, with a new collection of footwear for F/W15 that are timeless, in colours and patterns that you can wear over and over again for years to come, which is also one of the style mantras that the understated French luxury house is built on.
Priced from between SGD800 and SGD1200 a pair, you’ll find them in everything from felt to pony hair and from satin to wool, and in a range of colours that won’t go out of style tomorrow, something which devout fans always appreciate.
And then there’s this, a new addition to Céline’s Skate line for F/W15. Simply known as the Zipped Bootie, it is as the name describes, a zipped boot in felt, pony hair or shearling that’s guaranteed to keep you walking tall (and stylish) no matter where you are. Priced between SGD1200 and SGD1450, these, along with the regular Skate styles will be available at your local Céline temple (I mean, boutique), soon.
