The fashion world is abuzz as Phoebe Philo, the acclaimed British designer and former creative director of Chloé and Celine, returns to the scene with her eponymous London-based label. The fashion industry has been eagerly anticipating her return, and her first collection for this new venture was unveiled on Oct. 30.

Philo's comeback is backed by the luxury goods conglomerate LVMH, adding to the immense anticipation surrounding this launch. The collection, referred to as an 'edit,' is just the beginning of what is described as a 'seasonless’ body of work that simply continues to roll out periodical drops.

Future launches like these are expected to appear regularly. The inaugural edit, Phoebe Philo A1, includes a range of ready-to-wear garments, leather goods, and accessories. It will be released in three drops starting from Oct. 30, 2023. While there is yet to be a specific date revealed for the second portion of the Phoebe Philo A1 collection, the second edit, Phoebe Philo A2, is already planned for Spring 2024.

In total, there are 150 pieces to explore. Philo's collection appears to be an extension of her work during her time at Celine. It encompasses a series of elegant variations on classic wardrobe staples, with structured tailoring, geometric and boxy overcoats, trench coats, woolly sweaters, cargo pants, and more. The collection also includes casual pieces that suggest after-hours wear, as well as a range of accessories like shoes, bags, sunglasses, and jewellery.

Phoebe Philo first gained recognition when she took the helm at Chloé, and her work at Celine solidified her status as a cult designer. Her collections at Celine were celebrated for creating clothing tailored for the contemporary woman, which garnered her a devoted following in the fashion world.

Philo’s return is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated events in the industry, and her unique approach is sure to leave a lasting mark on the world of fashion both in terms of the business of distribution and marketing, as well as design philosophies.

Philo's return does not follow the traditional luxury playbook and promises to be distinctive. As of now, the collection is exclusively available through the official Phoebe Philo website, but only ships to the United Kingdom, in Europe, and to the United States. Click here to browse and shop.
