Founded by Céline Vipiana in 1945, the Paris-based Céline fashion house was originally established as a made-to-measure shoe business. Now one of the most highly sought-after names in the fashion industry, the label is renowned for classic designs that withstand time. Joining at the helm in 2008, Phoebe Philo injects modern minimalism to highly coveted collections and aims to create designs that are honest, simple and real. Céline clutches are superbly crafted, adding a covetable refined polish to evening outfits. Pared-down forms deftly exemplify Philo's design talent, while adaptable straps and versatile sizes fit seamlessly into working closets.
