Fodor's Expert Review Céline
Reinvigorated by Michael Kors in the late 1990s, Céline got another much-needed jolt when Phoebe Philo arrived in 2008 and began dazzling the critics with her focused approach. Philo singlehandedly redefined the codes of fashion for professional women, garnering a huge and fiercely loyal following for her streamlined, minimal designs, featuring flowing pants; long, unstructured jackets; and the Cabas bag. LVMH announced in January 2018 that she'd be succeeded by Hedi Slimane, who left Saint Laurent in 2016 after rocking (or rock 'n' rolling) the label to its core. As of this writing, it remains to be seen what he does with one of fashion's most beloved labels.
