America's still in the midst of the Primaries, but in Europe, a fashion label has already elected its next leader: This morning, Celine announced that Simona Zurki would helm the label's business dealings, after working as the VP at Miu Miu and the Prada Group. The move is neat because Celine's latest designer, Ivana Omazic, also came from the Prada Group, where she designed a big chunk of the Prada sport label after being recruited from Romeo Gigli and Jil Sander (also a Prada company). We're not sure what kind of changes Celine's new head will bring, except (predictably) a bigger accessories line, but we hope one thing stays the same: Opening their upcoming runway show with Gemma Ward, just like they did in February!

Céline Releases "Five Perfect Trousers" Capsule Collection
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.
