The resort collection of Celine is finally revealed to the public, just a few days before hitting the stores. Was it a smart move? Well, Zara and other stores are too good at copying in a astonishing limit of time. But this time I’m somewhat surprised as the Celine resort collection seems to consist mainly of basics. Beautiful basics I admit. We are all drooling over the beige Birks and the perfect trousers as shown in the third picture. And since I’m all about basics, I couldn’t be happier seeing this editorial filled with the resort collection of Celine and more of my favorites such as Ann Demeulemeester and Maison Martin Margiela. But still: do you think it was necessary to wait for such a long time before showing the collection? Although I have my doubts (I mean: Zara will have  a copy of these Birks before spring arrives…), I do think in the future it will become more and more important for all brands to hold their breath and be smart about their timing. What is your opinion about all this? Love to hear!
