Still not sure how to feel about the new Celine? Here’s an Instagram account that'll help you decide
Opened ahead of Hedi Slimane’s Celine debut, the new-old account serves as an archive and a tribute to Phoebe Philo’s era

Every Fashion Month, the spotlight naturally falls on the big designer debuts, and this season, Riccardo Tisci's Burberry collection and Hedi Slimane's Celine collection were definitely the two most talked about. While the former's 134-look collection was met with generally positive feedback, the latter presented a collection—filled with '80s glam-grunge looks—that had Philo-philes mourning the end of an era that was all about feminine elegance.

Following the show, it wasn't long until @OldCéline—an Instagram account by fresh graduate Gabrielle Boucinha—appeared on our radar. An ode to Phoebe Philo's time at the French fashion house, although the account only has 27 posts so far, it has already accumulated over 67,000 followers on Instagram, with some famous names in the mix, such as Virgil Abloh, Leandra Cohen (aka Man Repeller) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. A scroll through the feed and you'll notice posts of the British designer's designs and campaigns, including Daria Werbowy's Spring 2011 campaign, shot by Juergen Teller. If you're still yearning for more, here's another account to follow: @PhoebesCeline.
