Since taking over the helm in September 2008, British designer Phoebe Philo has reinvigorated the house of Céline, rebuilding it from scratch and reinventing it for a new era. In its 64-year existence, Céline has always been very polished, exquisitely French and known for its unusual love for “equestrienne chic” style. In its dashing Philo era, the brand has evolved its classic-yet-modern “utilitarian sportswear” look, where a subdued, simple palette seems perfectly suited to its fresh feminine proportions, luxurious fabrics and striking cuts. Each lean, clean collection takes on Philo’s instinctual approach to fashion: practical, comfortable and easy to wear.
