Phoebe Philo is one of the most relevant designers in the fashion industry. With a 100% Parisian style, she signs as Chloé and Celine were dying to sign her to be its creative director, coming up with the most acclaimed designs in recent years, such as the ‘box bag’, the Crombie coat or fur sandals.
However, after a decade at the helm of Celine, Philo announces his retirement at the helm of the brand in 2017, leaving fashion lovers orphans. After four years without any news, in the summer of 2021, the designer came out of her retirement to declare that she would return with her own brand of the same name and, after a year and a half, we already have the presentation date of the first collection of she: September 2023.
This has been transmitted by the British through a statement in the first official publication on the firm’s Instagram account: “Our inaugural collection will be revealed and will be available on our web platform (phoebephilo.com) in September 2023. We will open registrations in July 2023, we are already looking forward to contacting you again”.
According to the sources that announced his return more than a year ago, the brand’s minority investor would be the LVMH conglomeratenot surprising considering that when the designer was at the helm of Celine, she was part of this company for 10 years. “I have had a very constructive creative working relationship with LVMH for many years, so it is a natural progression for us to return to connect us in this new project. I really appreciate discussing new ideas with Bernard and Delphine Arnault and I am delighted to embark on this adventure with their support”, said Philo in an interview for the international news portal Business of Fashion.
Although she has been away from the sector for a while, this has not made her fans forget about her. The only publication of the firm (in which she recounts her return), already has more than 60,000 likes in less than 24 hoursin which Lily Allen, Lily Aldridge, Naomi Scott and Ashley Graham, among other celebrities, have already left their comments of support and enthusiasm.
At the moment, we can say little more, since if Phoebe Philo is characterized by something, it is for being one of the designers most mysterious in the industrybeing one of the personalities who grant fewer interviews in the fashion sector.
