Céline brought smart and sexy back with the unveiling of its last eyewear ad campaign featuring legendary American writer Joan Didion. We just have to applaud when art and intellect collide, so feast your eyes on the latest images released by the influential French fashion house, which caused a sensation with their brilliantly refreshing cover woman. Didion sports her signature bob, glamorous dark oversized sunglasses and is styled in an understated black blouse with a copper medallion hanging from her neck to complete the look- proving, in true Joan Didion fashion, that great style knows no age.
Handpicked by designer and creative director Phoebe Philo as a key figure of the SS 2015 collection alongside French ballet dancer and choreographer Marie-Agnès Gillot and British model Freya Lawrence and photographed by legendary fashion photographer Juergen Teller, if these early images are any indication of what’s to come then fans of the iconic brand can expect styles fit for powerful women with designs, like the one adorned by the literary great, that lend itself to a look that is domineering and powerful yet underpinned with an air of distinct femininity.
In anticipation of the SS 2015 campaign we decided to compile a few of the most notable styles to come out of one of our all time favourite brands.
Céline eyewear cannot be discussed without mentioning of one of the brands most popular styles to date. Céline Original sunglasses are a classic and have been hotly adored by fashion elites since their release, with celebrity fans which include: Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine and socialite Tamara Ecclestone.
If you’re into a statement piece with a modern aesthetic then you already have the incomparable Céline Butterfly Sunglasses as part of your eyewear collection. If you don’t then you have been missing out! Spotted on the likes of Jennifer Garner and Miley Cyrus, these shades prove that bolder girls do have more fun.
Céline’s aesthetic has been perfectly described as “artfully honed” and synonymous with “an ideal that’s at once sensual, austere, controlled, and achingly, achingly cool.” We’d like to pin another “achingly cool” to that after getting our hands on the stunning Céline ZZ’s. A fresh and distinct flat top, rounded square rims, vaguely wayfarer shape with a nod to the 22nd century, it is little wonder why these shades adorn faces of only the hottest of trendsetters around. This list includes: Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, Tyga and Miley Cyrus.
Blossoming style maven Kendall Jenner brings the fierce on and off the catwalk. The second youngest Jenner/Kardashian klan member sure made momager Kris Jenner proud, once again, when she walked the Chanel catwalk during Paris Couture Fashion week. Kendall Jenner modeled the legendary Karl Lagerfeld’s 73-piece collection that saw signature Chanel tweed suits, crystal flowers, tulle gardening hats and the major focal point of the collection included bare midriffs.
Kendall, one of this generation’s fastest rising stars of the modeling world and one of our favourite Jenners (aside from her hot older brother Brody) enjoyed a night out in the city of love, not before switching out her Chanel runway garb for an edgy look fit for a tween model, complete with one of the hottest sunglass styles this season, the new Celine ZZ Top sunglasses.
Kendall, born Kendall Nicole Jenner, first appeared on the small screen with the début of a little show called Keeping Up with the Kardashians (you might have heard of it), it was here that we first saw the beginnings of the modeling career that would see various commercial modeling print ads and photo-shoots to walking the runway in the high fashion world for some of the world’s major brands in New York, Milan and Paris.
Outside of her super successful reality television show that she stars in as herself alongside her sisters, Kylie Jenner and Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, she co authored a novel, Rebels: City of Indra with her younger sister Kylie with the help of ghost author Maya Sloan and also has two nail lacquers from the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors nail polish: All Kendall-ed up and Kendall on the Katwalk.
