Design Work, The Phoebe Files

One of Philo philosophies has been to subtly reinvent a core group of pieces each season/ the kind of wardrobe staples that she wears herself. “There’s a classsicism and beauty to it, ” she says- ” Why change it?”

All the houses that still have their integrity and stands for codes have that way of working, “ she adds. “The idea of fast fashion, and everething always having to be new, can lead to nothing other than a whole load of confusion. I don’t feel a need for that in the way I dress- and I think lots of other women feel the same way.”


She had an interview with LVMH Fashion’s president Pierre-Yves Roussel about establishing her own -named brand, but instead of it she’s got Celine. The Phoebe Files in Vogue March 2013
