There's nothing bigger than fashion enthusiasts' anticipation on Phoebe Philo's return to the industry. After her departure from Céline back in 2017, Phoebe Philo finally announced the launch of her own fashion label after four years of going under the radar. All eyes are definitely on the designer's next move as her label is declared to be launched on October 30.
An Instagram post back in June reads, "Our inaugural collection will be revealed and available on our website, phoebephilo.com, in September 2023. We will be opening for registration in July 2023 and look forward to being back in touch then." Based on the information, Philo initially planned to launch her collection back in September. However, with multiple delays and updates, she revealed that the date of the release and the availability for purchase have been set at the end of the month this year.
Subscribers to Philo's mailing list have received a confirmation email of the launch date on September 30, along with a fast-moving GIF of flashing teaser images of her designs for the label. The images included makeupless faces, close-up shots of fabrics, and a model with chunky silver earrings with a knitted polo-neck.
Philo is known for her minimalist and effortless designs during her career with Céline back in 2018 to 2017. She was lauded for the creative visual codes on how women actually want to dress, if male gaze doesn't exist. Even until the end of her journey with Céline, she strived to explore the evolution of minimalism which also offered something more eclectic yet wearable.
Philo's time at Céline brought glory to the fashion house and the industry itself-she also helped the brand to release numerous it-bags. Considering her huge contribution to the fashion house she once worked with, the fashion industry expectedly has some immense expectations for the fashion label she's going to launch. As there's not much to share about the collection and the brand itself so far, let's see what Phoebe Philo has to serve on our plate on October 30.(DIP/alm)
