Phoebe Philo is Leaving Celine

Before it was a rumor but now it is a fact, the British fashion designer is leaving her post as Creative Director of Céline. After 10 years at the French label, Philo retires from one of the most influential labels in the fashion industry.

“Working with Céline has been an exceptional experience for me these last 10 years,” she wrote in a statement. Philo’s last collection for the label will debut at Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018. Until Philo’s successor is named, the Céline team will handle the LVMH label’s designs.

She first worked with Stella McCartney at Chloé in the early 2000s. After taking a two-year leave from the industry to spend time with her family, Philo came back, assuming the top role at Céline, in 2008. She transformed Céline with sleek and luxurious leather goods and modernist clothing.

Her influence and impact on fashion have been stunning; her designs were for actual women who had jobs and kids. Philo is credited with turning around the fortunes of the brand, which was founded in 1945 and acquired by conglomerate LVMH.

As for what’s next remains unclear, but rumors suggest Philo will not work for another label. Her successor is to be named in the coming months, reports indicate Stella McCartney’s former design director Natasa Cagalj or Victoria Beckham’s Ilaria Icardi could be potential candidates.
