The pintucks are flattering toe the waist area and are also mirrored on the back and create a nice visual line line to the waist. Founded in 1945 CELINE is a famous French Fashion house, they added ready to wear to their label in the 1960s and have had a series of notable designers at the helm including Michael Kors, Phoebe Philo and currently Hedi Slimane, their designs have come to stand for understated luxury and elegance.
Did you know that despite the controversy caused by current CELINE creative director for removing the è in the branding after taking over from Phoebe Philo the brand has actually in fact for many years previously not always been consistent in using the è, in fact many early examples of the brands advertising and labels from the 1970s and 1980s (such as this dress) do not use the accent.
