You’ve heard the news. You’ve seen 10 of theFashionSpot’s must-see looks from the collection, and we’re 99.9% certain you do not need reminding that Phoebe Philo’s eponymous label has finally dropped – breaking the internet and selling out within minutes (to absolutely no one’s amazement). Fashion fans flocked to the website immediately upon launch and totally cleaned out covetable items such as the calf leather gig bag, the oversized bombé sunglasses and the mum necklace. After all, it has been six long years since the cult British designer departed Celine and there’s been a Philo-shaped hole in the fashion industry ever since – until now.
Naturally, members of theFashionSpot forums have been sat deliberating, discussing and dissecting over every last detail of the collection non-stop for the past 24 hours. Scroll further for an unfiltered take on Philo’s debut:
“These prices are eye-watering. $8,900 for a basic, leather tote!” [StylishCynic]
“So the whole collection feels like her early Pre-Fall at Celine. Not bad not great. The prices though…” [GivenchyAddict]
“The prices are killing me so much that I can’t even appreciate the collection.” [Polynpon]
“The prices points are very bold in some ways, but kind of what you expect. I do believe pricing it as luxury is a smart move in the long run IF the business can be maintained. I think the strongest category on the site are her shoes.” [Salvatore]
“The shoes, especially those club loafers are really good. The collection itself is desirable and will connect to people who bought Celine.” [Norden]
“She is still the leader of the pack! I knew it was going to be expensive but the prices of the coats and jackets really made me stop. But it’s very good, very Philo for Celine but maybe more streamlined. I still love how she can make a very extravagant piece look casual.” [Lola701]
