I can hear you think, there she is whining again about Celine. Blahblahblah. I will promise this will be the last thing I’ll say about it. I’m just sad you know. I spent the whole Saturday talking with other disappointed fans trough my Instagram private inbox. And today I still am. We want Phoebe Philo back!
This was everything we were afraid of ( you can read my earlier post about my worries here). A second YSL. Bleeegh boring! Hedi lives in a world where everybody wears black and sequins. In f-ing spring! And where every girl is skinny and boyish. Where did the colour and the creativity go? And the real woman? Phoebe Philo was all about real woman. She understood us and that’s why Céline (so Céline, not Celine) build a massive amount of fans.
It may sound weird, but I really am sad. I loved this brand, every part of it. The photography by Juergen Teller, the interior of the shops, the knotted jewelry. And suddenly I have to find me a new favorite brand. Me and my Céline (again Céline, not Celine) friends were already discussing about what other brand that will be, hahaha. One said Jil Sander, one other said Loewe. I don’t know yet. I hope Phoebe will start somewhere new soon
Yesterday in the Celine boutique in Amsterdam it was crowded, very crowded. I think everybody wants a last memory of what Celine was. Phoebe Philo’s Celine. They already changed the name and I heard the sales man say, that everything will change in February. I hope they will do a sale before they burn everything down. Otherwise I don’t think I will do another Celine purchase. No sale, no purchase.
Bye bye Céline it was a pleasure!
Lots of love #teamphoebe
