Phoebe Philo, one of the biggest names in the international fashion industry is reportedly preparing to make a comeback. According to WWD, Phoebe is working on a new collection with an “eco slant and essentials focus” but no other details were revealed.
Phoebe Philo stepped down from her role as Creative Director at Céline in 2017. The news of Phoebe’s departure from the brand was met with widespread remorse as the influential designer’s minimalistic, sophisticated aesthetic for the LVMH label had attained global cult status. In the decade spent at the helm of storied Parisian label, Phoebe single-handedly catapulted Céline from the side lines and into the limelight, making it one of the most sought-after brands within the industry. Phoebe Philo’s vision of Céline transcended age and trends, bringing with it a sense of easy, contemporary timelessness that replicated the Creative Director’s own personality. Phoebe, with her down-to-earth approach, unequivocal design mastery and vision was as loved as her designs.
Fans have waited almost three years for news of Phoebe’s next move and the whispers of a brand new Phoebe Philo collection, one with sustainability at its core has been met with remarkable excitement. Phoebe Philo has yet to comment on the rumours but we predict it is only a matter of time.
