It might sound presumptuous to design a piece of clothing and deem it “perfect” but not if you’re Phoebe Philo. The Céline designer has released a capsule collection, straightforwardly named “Five Perfect Trousers.” And they really are sleek minimalist perfection.
According to Céline, five pairs of pants is all you need. Her capsule collection comprises a high-waisted wide leg pair in white revived from the label’s archives, a pleated tapered pair, a men’s straight leg (our personal favorite), a cropped tube leg, and a flat-front tapered leg.
“There is no shortcut to making an excellent pair of trousers, which is what makes them so rare,” the label wrote in a release about the collection, according to Vogue UK. “It takes a commitment to technique, a deep knowledge of tailoring and understanding of how to elongate differing female body-alignments. Then, there is the critical element: the fashion informed judgment which makes a proportion right, so it synchs effortlessly with a shoe, a top, a jacket for today.”
Fingers crossed for a five perfect tops collection, followed by a five perfect jackets collection, and the ability to afford any of it…
Behold the pants perfection.
