Oh, it’s Céline! Phoebe Philo’s methods of slinking in under the publicity radar are becoming yet more exquisitely practiced with every season. Put it this way: If closing off backstage interviews after her Spring show (the latest) was one blow to quote-seeking news-gatherers, then choosing to release Céline Resort pictures on the day of the U.S. presidential election takes evasion to another level. It begs a question: How much does Phoebe Philo want these pictures seen? Or more to the point, is she silently maneuvering against her clothes being over-seen and over-shared before her customers have a chance to stumble upon them in a Céline store for themselves?
