Will Phoebe Philo make a fashion comeback?

#oldceline fans, your time has come. Word has it that Phoebe Philo may return to fashion since departing from Celine (we really mean Céline, so if you know, you know).

With a uniquely captivating approach to restrained elegance, Philo’s clean, minimalistic and contemporary designs at Céline have revolutionised the way women dress on a global scale, and the announcement of her departure after her tenure at the house devastated many. Since then, fans have been secretly anticipating for her return, even though she expressed no plans to work for another fashion house. But, if the whispers are true, the wait might just be over real soon.

With a uniquely captivating approach to restrained elegance, Philo’s work at Céline has hugely influenced the way modern women dress.

According to WWD, “multiple sources on both sides of the Atlantic” have confirmed that Philo is working on the launch of her own label, with a specific “eco slant and essentials focus”. It was also said that she started working on her brand since her exit from Chloé, but had to set it aside as it was too expensive. Instead, she went to Céline and stayed for 10 years, during which she took the brand from a blank canvas to one that sits proudly amongst industry leaders.

However, it looks like she might finally be back on track again, and has, reportedly, been interviewing designers who will be working in her team. Meanwhile, there is also speculation that she might step into a role at fashion house Azzedine Alaïa, but no public confirmation has been announced.

Though we are all very happy to just hear news about Philo, we should also be reminded that previous rumours have circulated of her appointments to Burberry and Chanel, so we’ll just have to hold our breath for a little longer, while we keep our fingers crossed for any official announcements, hopefully in the near future.
