Fashion rumour mill is spinning this morning with the news that Phoebe Philo might be exiting Celine.
Several sources have reported that LVMH, the luxury group conglomerate who own the brand, are interviewing designers to replace the current creative director. There are no details of when Philo will depart her current role, but some believe it won’t be in the near future.
For many in the industry this will come as a shock as for almost 10 years Philo has been the soul of Celine delivering minimalist high end designs that made everyone want to be part of her style movement. Her latest SS18 collection was met with rave reviews for once again showcasing timeless well cut pieces that surpass any trends.
We are yet to hear the official announcement, but it is believed Philo will stay on until the end of the year while the company goes through the potential list of candidates as her replacement. They have some big Celine shoes to fill.
