Céline – the eponymous label founded by Céline Vipiana in 1945 – is a fashion house with a heritage – and a very powerful one. Its strong influence is largely the result of the perfect pairing of the individual designer with the revolutionary house: Phoebe Philo and Céline. Philo is ostensibly one of fashion’s most creative designers, while Céline is the label at the forefront of fashion – both drive fashion forward. What Philo did for Spring/Summer ’14 was unprecedented as she produced a stunning and powerful collection, breathing life into a brand that some were beginning to pigeonhole as ‘minimalist’. Philo subverted critical opinion once again and this time, it won’t be as easy for counterfeit producers to copy a Céline bag or shoe; Philo is so innovative with both her design and technique. Being the Céline woman has never been more relevant today.
