Fashion lovers rejoice! It’s officially confirmed that Phoebe Philo, the former creative director of Celine is making a return to the fashion world after a three-year hiatus. Philo will be launching an eponymous label and French luxury conglomerate LVMH is expected to back her brand as a minority stakeholder, allowing the fashion designer to retain control, govern and experiment on her own terms, according to an official statement.
While we’re excitedly waiting for Philo’s comeback and upcoming collections, let’s take a look at some of her best moments for the luxury fashion brand, Celine, including iconic jewellery and clothing designs, memorable catwalk moments and more.
The boxy twist sandal
Philo values comfort but never fails to add a sophisticated element to her designs. Case in point: the boxy twist sandal. This design was created during Philo's earlier years at the fashion house and has since evolved into various styles, all of which retain what made these shoes iconic: twist motifs and chunky structures.
