Last Thursday Pheobe Philo showed her debut collection for Celine with the Resort and Cruise line. The whimsical, girlie pieces she created for Chloe have been replaced with a more utilitarian and masculine aesthetic.
Philo was brought in to revamp the Parisian fashion house and to breath some life back in to a label that some might say has become a bit stale. Yes, it’s always had the classics but Philo has managed to make their signature tailored pieces contemporary and fresh, with the help of some minimalist styling.
Celine has never claimed to do couture and it's their practical attitude toward dressing that attracted Phil to the job. “These clothes are made to be worn and there’s a hole in the market when it comes to accessible, quality clothes”.
J’adore the chic clean lines-very Helmut Lang x
