Back in February I wrote an article (see here) expressing my anticipation towards the recently confirmed return of Phoebe Philo to design for Celine. Today I am absolutely ecstatic to bring you a select from this liaison, Philo’s first collections designed for Celine. It makes perfect sense that Philo took a nice break before bringing forward this new woman, it would have been very difficult to make the transition from her Chloe designs into this Celine collection with sometime to regroup. Never the less this collection is still in every way a reflection of Philo as a woman ~ its just the next stage.
Here are a few words from Philo herself, describing the force behind her new start…”It’s not about total looks,” said Philo of her approach. “After my break, and with Celine in various different hands these last years, it felt better for me to work on an idea of a wardrobe than too much on trends. October will be for that. The collection is about interchangeable investment pieces. I worked hard to create things that will stand the test of time.”
