Celine Rita. Spring Summer 2011/12. “Boulevard Baby”.
I always enjoy discovering new labels. Celine Rita is an up-and-coming New Zealand label that debuted at NZ Fashion Week in 2010. The spring 2011/12 collection is entitled ‘Boulevard Baby’ and draws inspiration from the “sunny coastlines of America” as well as incorporating 1990s influences. With a collection that features leopard print and pastel pink sheer fabrics, how could I not want to write about it? The printed blazer and pants in the last image have especially caught my eye. For a collection that aspires to be “effortlessly cool”, it’s achieved just that.
