Heiress vs Penniless: Céline Laundry Bag Checks

This season Phoebe Philo took that old adage about models looking good in bin bags and fiddled with it a little... for A/W13 the willowy, beautiful brigade stalked down the Céline runway in Paris looking not good, but knockout AMAZING in, wait for it... 
 
Laundry bags... 
 
 
Yup, Philo managed to pull off the Herculean task of making those crackly, plasticky, checked granny bags look chic. Dot Cotton, eat your heart out...
 
You know it's a runaway smash of a collection when pieces pop up on the front of multiple Vogues and Miroslava Duma sports the look top to toe...
 
 
 

Of course, if we had Miroslava-esque bank balances we'd be minesweeping the nearest Céline store and filling our closets with these luxe laundry accessories...
 

Sadly we don't have a spare couple of thousand pounds knocking around in the bottom of our wallets, so instead we've scoured the highstreet for the very best in laundry loveliness on a washerwoman's budget...
