Phoebe Philo announces her next move
Well—it’s confirmed. British designer Phoebe Philo has announced that she will be returning to fashion with a new independent namesake brand. The announcement came via Instagram (where else!), after Philo set up an account for her new chapter. The inaugural collection will be revealed and available to shop with phoebephilo.com this September. It’s music to the ears of fashion fans (Philophiles!) everywhere, who’ve been mourning the lack of understated but always elegant minimalism in their lives since the designer’s departure from Celine in 2018. With countless Instagram inspiration accounts devoted to her past designs and a name that’s revered, no doubt press, consumers, retailers, and even fellow designers will be waiting with bated breath for this new venture.
