The wait is over for a look at the Céline resort 2014 collection…

Photos showed up last week on the site, listed under Spring 2014, and it’s just about everything we wanted and hoped for. The brand originally did not release any photos to the press and did not allow photos to be taken during resort appointments. We asked: Would there be “Birks”? Perfectly minimal dresses? Another Berlingot?

We now know the answer to those questions: yes, yes and no.

Here are some of our favorite looks from the collection, which includes more “Birks”(!), great coats and more of those super cool slip-ons that just about everyone has been wearing.

What do you think about Céline choosing to hold off on releasing images of their resort collection for the last few months? Was it worth the wait?
