All you have to know about the Creative Director of Céline, one of the most influential people in the fashion world.

Minimalist aesthetic, clean shapes, British elegance, linear volumes, Parisian charm and ethereal color palette: these are the main characteristics of the “chic” style. Who dictates these rules is Phoebe Philo, the fashion designer who creates beautiful and incredible garments.

Phoebe Philo born in Paris in 1973 but she studied in London, where she graduated at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, the most important fashion university in the world. As soon as she finished her studies, the designer has been noticed by the French brand Chloé which made her first assistant of the ready-to wear collection. Because of this important job she had to move in Paris where, in 2001 when she was only 28 years old, she had been appointed Creative Director of the Maison. Then she resigned from Chloé and she took a break from the fashion system going back in London. But after a year she became Creative Director of another incredible French brand, Céline.

Philo’s talent and creativity let her direct two of the biggest fashion companies, but those qualities also made her win many awards. Fow two times she had been nominated “British Designer of the Year” from the British Fashion Council, which rewared style icons like Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCarteny… The CFDA, Council of Fashion Designers of America, gave her the “International Designer of the Year” in the 2011. She received the “OBE” Award from the Queen Elizabeth and in 2014 she had been listed in Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Today Phoebe Philo lives in London, she’s married and she has three amazing children. Every season she reconfirms her incredible skills designing for Céline super chic dresses which express her personality, creativity, passion and style.

The latest collection from Céline is available on TESSABIT boutique (via Milano 107, Como).

Versione italiana

Estetica minimalista, purezza delle forme, eleganza british, volumi essenziali, fascino parigino e tonalità eteree: sono queste le caratteristiche dello stile definito “chic”. Chi ha dettato e imposto queste regole è lei, Phoebe Philo, fashion designer inglese creatrice di quegli abiti che ogni donna desidera indossare.

Nata nel 1973 a Parigi, Phoebe Philo ha studiato a Londra dove nel 1996 si è diplomata presso la Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, la più esclusiva università di moda del mondo. Terminati gli studi, la stilista è stata subito notata dal marchio francese Chloè che l’ha nominata prima assistente nell’ufficio stile del settore ready-to-wear. Questo primo importante impiego l’ha portata a trasferirsi a Parigi dove nel 2001, a soli 28 anni, è stata eletta Direttore Creativo della Maison. Lasciato Chloè, dopo un periodo di pausa dal fashion system, Phoebe Philo è tornata a Londra dove è diventata Creative Director di un’altra incredibile casa di moda francese, Céline.

Il talento e la creatività della Philo non solo le hanno permesso di lavorare per due dei più importanti colossi della moda, le hanno fatto vincere anche numerosi premi. È stata nominata due volte “British Designer of the Year” dal British Fashion Council, che negli anni ha incoronato icone di stile come Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCarteny… Il CFDA, Council of Fashion Designers of America, l’ha premiata nel 2011 come “International Designer of the Year”. Ha ricevuto il riconoscimento “OBE” dalla Regina Elisabetta in persona, e se non bastasse nel 2014 è apparsa sulla classifica del Time Magazine come una delle 100 personalità più influenti del mondo.

Oggi Phoebe Philo vive a Londra, è sposata e ha tre stupendi figli. Ogni stagione riconferma la sua bravura disegnando abiti da sogno per Céline attraverso i quali esprime personalità, creatività, passione e stile.

L’ultima collezione Cèline è disponibile presso la boutique TESSABIT in via Milano 107, Como.

 

 

 

First of all -blonde-. Blonde inside out. Everyone knows me because I invented a famous digital case "Prince charming is gay". Events, social media and digital pr are my job but I'm writer and trendsetter, lover of beauty but not of losers. I live in Milan, I was born in Rome but I'm very very tall like nordic people (186 cm). My background is about fashion, I studied at Marangoni international school and I do the work that I always dreamed. I love '80 and paillettes and Farrah Fawcett elegance. I love parties, surely you have seen me around.
