ZAt least this much is clear, despite all the uncertainty: the turtleneck appears to be playing an important role in Phoebe Philo’s design life. In the early Céline collections, around 2010, he appeared on the runway again and again. As she got to work, the designer was photographed wearing a turtleneck sweater pulled up to her nose. It was as if she wanted to hide behind her fashion. (“The best part is when you’re not on Google,” she once said. “God, I wish I was that person.”)
Now she’s back, or almost. On Google, on Instagram and at various fashion week cocktail parties, this luminary’s new label is now one of the most talked about topics in fashion. When Phoebe Philo was still with Chloé, the New York Times once called her the Coco Chanel of her generation. Alternatively, she could also be called – for her work on minimalism later at Céline – the Jil Sander of this millennium.
The first collection should appear in early 2022.
And Phoebe Philo herself maintains the excitement about the sequel at any cost, as if she were not a fashion designer, but an author of thrillers. She initially announced the first collection for early 2022. Luxury group LVMH bought shares directly at that time. Then at first nothing happened.
Now, finally, during Paris Fashion Week at the end of September, as the story goes, Phoebe Philo is ready and will show the world what the fashion of tomorrow looks like. Short message service Style Not Com said: “This is just a reminder that Phoebe Philo’s first collection could arrive at any time.” Vintage platform Vestiaire Collective provided data on Phoebe Philo’s search queries.

Phoebe Philo is a magnet for anyone interested in her work, who glorifies her old pieces online as “Old Celine” and pays prices for them that are fashionably comparable to those for vintage cars in the auto industry. Her Instagram account remained empty and not a single post appeared there. 277,000 subscribers were waiting.
Fashion weeks are almost over, everyone has seen the latest collections of Sarah Burton and Gabriela Hearst for Alexander McQueen and Chloé, as well as the new Gucci from Sabato de Sarno. But no one had the slightest idea about Phoebe Philo, played by Phoebe Philo. Then a GIF came from the voiceover: what looked like a mood board, wrinkled skin, long noses, and in between them someone who almost disappeared behind a pair of straight-leg cat-eye sunglasses in a black turtleneck. They say Phoebe Philo is actually due back on October 30th.
