Phoebe Philo to exit Céline

After 10 years as Creative Director of the Parisian luxury brand Céline, designer Phoebe Philo is to step down.  The British designers final show will be the SS18 show set to take place in Paris in March.  In a statement from the brand Philo said “Working with Céline has been an exceptional experience for me these last 10 years. I am grateful to have worked with an incredibly talented and committed team and I would like to thank everyone along the way who has been part of the collaborations and conversations. It’s been amazing.”  Philo joined Céline in 2008, after a tenure at Chloé, and over the 10 years has redefined how women dress, from revitalising the Stan Smith trainer she wore at the end of her catwalk shows, to turning out leather ‘it’ bags with ease as well as her famously edgy campaigns in collaboration with Juergen Teller.   Rumours of her next role include a possible move to Burberry.
