Phoebe Philo to leave the French fashion brand Céline


Phoebe Philo, the creative director of fashion label Céline, will leave her position after 10 years, confirming the Guardian newspaper this afternoon confirming months of speculation.

Philo said in a statement issued by the label that working with Céline “is an extraordinary experience.” She added: “I am very grateful for being able to work with a very talented and loyal team, and I want to thank everyone who has been involved in the cooperation and dialogue … It’s great.”
Philo is believed to have reversed the fate of the brand, which was founded in 1945 and was acquired by LVMH, a group owned by Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy and Loewe in 1996, by Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy, and Loewe. Before she arrived in 2008, fashion designers, including American designer Michael Kors, came and went, although no one had positioned the brand as a global influence and a trendsetter as Philo had arrived on arrival people.

Céline described her design as a “back to reality” aesthetics, renowned for its integration of artistic expression with functionality, and later redefined luxury fashion as minimized and stripped, but always refined Implementation.

Philo’s personal style, though intensely personal, has also spurred specific projects to become a mainstream fashion age spirit – most notably Adidas Stan Smith coach she often wears during the show’s bow. As a result, she has had the most influence over our wardrobe (and the world’s fashion editor) over the past decade.
Philo’s efforts tripled the brand’s profits and won her several prestigious awards including the British designer for the 2010 British Fashion Awards and the International Award for the CFDA Fashion Awards.

Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive of Louis Vuitton, said today: “Phoebe’s achievements over the past decade are a key part of Celine’s history.” We are very grateful to Phoebe for his help with this home Great contribution to the development. The new era of Céline will start now, and I am confident of the future success of this iconic building. ”

Philo’s next move is still unknown, but there are rumors that she will work full-time with her young family in London.
Her successor was also not nominated. So far this year, Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, Diane von Fürstenberg’s Jonathan Saunders and Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci have all announced that their brand bias has naturally been seen as a surrogate. Before selecting a new creative director, the in-house design team will complete the temporary collection.
