On My Mind

Before Phoebe Goes

When Phoebe Philo announced that she was leaving Chloé in 2006, I ran out and bought her iconic black and tan dress, which I still wear. So, I’m starting to think about the few pieces I would like to collect before she leaves Céline.

When the rumors were confirmed that Ms. Philo is leaving the house, my heart sank. Heidi Slimane is an inspired replacement, yet like everyone, I’m waiting to see where the brilliant British designer goes next—her own label would be ideal. Here’s to hoping.

  • I also am already mourning Phoebe’s departure from Celine and trying to decide what handbags I want to snap up before she exits. No one does minimalist style the way she does, and I feel like I want to fill my closet with as many Cabas totes and Trio bags – among others – as I can afford, in as many colors as I can find. I hope she decides to continue showcasing her amazing talent either on her own or at another fashion house sooner rather than later!

  • Which Celine bag is your favorite? Is it one you own or just covet?

  • I’d LOVE to hear everyone’s favorite Celine bag under Phoebe’s direction, as I too am looking to stock up!

  • My favorites are the box bag in medium and the large Cabas tote. I have a hobo and a trio as well, but they’re both a bit problematic for me. I’d love another box bag or a bucket.
