Pheobe Philo Brings Minimalism Back in a Big Way

 - Nov 8, 2011
There is a popular saying in the fashion world that states that everything is "clean and lean at Celine." The luxury French fashion house was founded by Celine Vipiana in 1945 and the brand has actually had another famous name at its head before Ms. Phoebe Philo. Designer Michael Kors was the creative director at Celine from 1997 to 2004.

Since taking over in 2007, however, not only had Phoebe Philo become a household name and immensely respected figure in the fashion industry (Kanye West even references her in a song), but Philo can single-handedly be credited for bringing minimalism back into the mainstream.

After years of bohemian looks reigning, thanks to Celine, a minimalistic approach to dressing is once again seen as the simplest way to look chic.
