    Phoebe Philo

    Fashion designer Phoebe Philo for Céline

    She has become a big favourite in the fashion world and since joining the Parisian house in 2008, Philo has transformed Céline into one of the most successful labels in the industry with an iconic trendsetter status. She creates wardrobe staples like no one else and was the first to introduce the “casual suspects” such as transforming the good old Birkenstock flat to a high-end fashion item on the runway.

    True or not, the change can be explained by her wanting to spend more time with her family – just like the case was when she left Chloé in 2006. This could make Philo a perfect match with Azzedine Alaïa, who is known for operating at his own pace, not dictated by the official fashion calendar. This is exactly where The Fashion Law reports she could be heading, although the house of Alaïa have at this stage denied these rumours.

    Whether the rumours turn out to be true or not, we are super curious to see what will happen to Céline next and even more how Phoebe Philo would add her aesthetics to Alaïa if she does end up there.
