Last September when Céline’s spring ready-to-wear 2014 line debuted it reminded of an art studio—canvas strokes and paint spills primarily. And, when the Céline 2014 campaign came out, I was immediately inspired, mostly because at the time that I saw it I was in the process of getting close to a half-way point on a little painting project myself.
Then, on another day as I was flipping through the pages of a few stylish glossies (as I waited patiently for my laptop to boot up), I saw the ad again, but this time it was an alternate part of the ad—vibrant colours boldly printed on garments with framing. I loved it!
Although, I have daring prints and bright hues in my wardrobe, I actually don’t have many gigantic scale abstract prints that I generally wear … Maybe one or two, but presently I cannot think of any that come to mind.
When I was perusing the Choies site, I finally laid my eyes on this dress, well, it’s more of a blouse rather than a tunic or dress at least for me. I am not usually inspired by a collection directly, wardrobe-wise, but then I remembered that Céline ad after I had selected it. So, instead of wearing this as a dress, I decided to blouson it, and make it a top, which was the more logical (fashion) solution.
