The fashion world can be catty, but no one ever has a bad word to say about Phoebe Philo.
As the creative director of Celine, Philo launched the brand into one of the most coveted labels around. From the ubiquitous leather Celine totes to the minimalist, earth tone clothes, the most fashionable industry insiders (and Kanye West) are fans.
Which is why editors, bloggers and fashion lovers are about to get hit with some disappointing news: there will be no Celine runway show this season.
Women's Wear Daily reports that Phoebe Philo is pregnant with her third child and thus is planning on scaling back her upcoming presentation.
There will be a little extra breathing room during Paris Fashion Week in March: Celine, one of the hottest tickets, is skipping the runway this season. "The objective is to simplify," Celine CEO Marco Gobbetti told WWD (which may as well be Celine's tagline).
While Celine will keep its allotted March 4 time slot in the Paris Fashion Week schedule, the Fall 2012 goods will likely be shown to editors and buyers in the house's showrooms, a more informal setting.
Which means editors will still get their fix, but those of us hanging back stateside probably won't -- until the looks hit the fashion mags come September, at least. Read more at WWD.com.
