We Love ... Celine

Three of 34 looks from Celine's resort collection.

Phoebe Philo's outstanding debut collection for Celine hits stores on November 16. Chic and beautifully constructed, these pieces are also totally wearable. Here are five reasons we love her clothes:

1. This resort collection thankfully isn't for the beach. It's buy now, wear now. What a concept!
2. Get in on the khaki military trend early.
3. These aren't flash-in-the-pan items. The pieces are meant to last in your wardrobe.
4. Good old separates finally return as mix-and-match — which is how we really dress.
5. Even the dresses are "normal," and not silly evening gowns.

$350 to $5,000 at Barneys New York, 660 Madison Ave., at 61st St. (212-826-8900); M–F (10–8), S (10–7), Su (11–6).
