Phoebe Philo

Phoebe Philo, design director at Celine, was named by TIME Magazine as one of the "100 most influential people in the world".

What Impact does that have on you?  Refer to the scene in Devil Wears Prada about the cerulean blue sweater.  Phoebe Philo decides the cerulean blue. She chooses the shape of the sweater.  Her choices float in the fashion zeitgeist and we respond. She sets the direction and tone for wearable fashion.  Wonder why everyone suddenly wants to wear Vans?  Or why you are wearing higher waisted pants, chunkier heels, wider trousers or carrying totes or structured bags?  Look at the designs from Phoebe Philo and her team at Celine over the past seven years.

What follows?  In the next few weeks Impact Styling will share our top selects from Fashion Month.
