Céline's Spring '14 Campaign Should Be Hanging In A Gallery

Imagine a canvas that's been splashed with primary colors. Yet, instead of an oops! creation, it's a well-curated clash of vibrant hues and brushstrokes in all the right places. It might resemble a mashup of a Mondrian and a Pollock, but, actually, it's a Céline. No, you're not at the MoMA — you're looking at the new images from the brand's spring '14 ad campaign. It's a striking sartorial twist on oil-painting class that we can't take our eyes off of — mostly because we can't tell if it's art or apparel that we're admiring.
Juergen Teller hopped behind the lens for the color-happy campaign, which features Daria Werbowy and Julia Nobis. The other stars of the photos? The fluid fabrics of the Céline garments that seem to have a life of their own, stretching to fill the entire frame. And, with the models moving about and forming shapes with their bodies, it only heightens the drama of Phoebe Philo's lively designs. Consider the campaign ahead to be a very necessary piece of art education.
