Oh Phoebe Philo, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways... In this case, the most appropriate answer would be five, as the head designer's new capsule collection for Celine, dubbed "Five Perfect Trousers," consists of just that.
Infused with the brand's signature minimalist aesthetic, these five styles make ideal building blocks for one's non-denim-based wardrobe. They include: a pleated tapered leg; a cropped slim and straight leg; a high-waisted wide leg; a classic tapered leg; and a menswear-inspired straight leg—each featuring expert tailoring and a silhouette for just about any body type (as well as shoe choice, which certainly makes a difference in how a leg falls).
According to the WSJ, the collection will be permanently available with slight changes in fabric and style, according to the season—for year-round perfection. That said, it's no wonder Philo was just named "Designer of the Year" by the British Fashion Council.
