Former Celine designer Phoebe Philo reportedly preparing own collection
The collection from the British designer is said to have an “eco slant and essentials focus.”
After it was announced in 2017 that Phoebe Philo would be stepping down from Celine, the much-lauded fashion designer has kept mostly to herself, until now.
According to The Cut, which cites a report from the fashion industry trade journal, WWD, Philo has been working on a new collection and is interviewing other designers.
The new collection is reported to have an “eco slant and essentials focus.”
The British designer and her associates have not commented publicly on the information, though.
Philo, who began her career under Stella McCartney at Chloe, was said to have had plans for her own line ever since she left the label, but that was too expensive. She then joined Celine, where she stayed for 10 years, and where she was known for her minimalistic, modern style that made her one of the most influential designers of her generation.
If the news comes to fruition, it spells good news for fans of Philo’s designs.
In 2005 and 2010, Philo was named British Designer of the Year by the British Fashion Council. She was also appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2014 for her services to fashion.
