One item that shouldn’t be left out when planning the Fall 14 Five Piece list is the ribbed knit trousers. Inspired by Céline, fashion editors from around the globe let their September Issue models wear this new take on knits and styled it with Doc Martens boots.

If the weather is treating you to Fall-like rainstorms, do as Christine Centenera does and wear a Célinish ethno scarf to keep you warm and stylish. A carefully picked design and fabric can take you from office to party and deserves a basic spot in every Five Piece Wardrobe.

Phoebe Philo had the thirties in mind when designing the Céline Fall 14 collection. In fact, it was a photo of Lee Miller which was her starting point. “These women were doing things which were quite radical at the time, like wearing men’s clothes, but which today seem quite normal,” she told style.com.
But who was Lee Miller? Born in 1907, Lee started her modeling career on the cover of American Vogue in 1927. When she moved to Paris, she became the lover and muse of photographer Man Ray and became an established fashion and fine arts photographer herself.
During World War II she became the only female war correspondent for Vogue, covering events such as the London Blitz and the liberation of the Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps. One of her most bizarre photographs of that time is a self portrait in Hitler’s bathtub with her dirty military boots in front of her.
Even though she was recognized as one of the most remarkable photographers of her time, many of her images have still remained unpublished. Lee Miller in Fashion, written by Becky E. Conekin, is a special view on her life’s story.
When you look at the similarities in the pictures, it’s beautiful to see how Phoebe paid hommage to Lee’s art and free spirit lifestyle by designing thirties style coats, military – Doc Martens style – boots, and over the knee skirts for the free spirited women of today.
