Pheobe and me must have the same fetish? That fetish would of course be PANTS every look in this collection was styled with a long,sheer,tailored,elephant or short pant!! Lets start with the minimalist crisp white pants that were very long and just covered the shoe! They are a perfectly stylish blank canvas for you to bring to life with bold and colorful accessories, that statement jacket or even interesting tunic! Just like the statement blue leather leopard coat making major statement on the white cool minimalist blank canvas!!!
 The collection was a tiny delight with only 17 looks much like fall but the collection still conveyed cool minimalism thats very chic and popular! It was all about being cool in that chic french way which pheobe really gets across in a great fashion! Lots of cool whites, bold leopards and solids and not to mention Polka dots so cool!! The commercial cool chic pants,jackets and my fav accessories those clean minimalist leather celine clutches i simply die, ive been dying for everything celine since spring 2010 pheobe philos first collection for label! So really there is no wrong she can do in my eyes and i love it all especially her pants :D 
 
 

Aquascutum

Picture
Following its decision earlier this week to enter administration, Aquascutum has decided to close its UK manufacturing plant in Corby - due to "loss-making operations and a lack of funding" - with a loss of 115 jobs.
"Whilst a difficult decision, it has been necessary in order to stem on-going losses for the business, and to protect the positions of the 135 remaining employees," a spokesperson for the adminstrators said this morning. "We plan to provide appropriate assistance to all affected employees, including liaising with Jobcentre plus and helping with claims to the Redundancy Payments Service. All head office and retail operations across the UK and international high street, concession and outlet stores are operating as usual at present."



Celines london return!

Picture
CELINE is set to reopen in London, after helping lift LVMH first quarter profits by 25 per cent. The French label, helmed by British designer Phoebe Philo, has signed a deal to open a store on the site of the Jordan International Bank at 103 Mount Street.
The label becomes the latest in a long line of big-name designer brands to open on the street: Lanvin, Bottega Veneta, Loewe, Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin and Balenciagaalready have shops there - and earlier this week,Oscar de la Renta confirmed it will occupy a unit previously owned by hairdresser Nicky Clarke. Property investor Grosvenor, which owns almost every key property on Mount Street, is reportedly in talks with labels including Givenchy, Alaïa, Chloe, Yves Saint Laurent and Erdem to open stores on the street.
Celine closed its only UK store, on London's Bruton Street, in July 2009 - shortly after new creative director Phoebe Philo showed herfirst collection for the label; for pre-spring/summer 2010. At the time the label remained tight-lipped about the strategy behind the closure, but it was suggested that Philo wanted to allow time to put her stamp on the brand, before opening a new raft of stores in keeping with her pared-
back vision.


Mirrandas hidden talent

Picture
Miranda Kerr's secret singing talent suggests that a music career wouldn't be outside the realms of reason. 
"I have recorded a couple of songs, actually, that no one knows about!" she told us, although she remained very coy about track titles or music genre. "You probably won't hear them but I love to sing! I'm doing so much at the moment, modelling obviously, I have Kora Organics, my books, and my family, so I have quite a lot to focus on for the time being!"

Hindmarch Triumph 

Picture
Anya Hindmarch has been announced as the winner of this year's Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award. The London-based accessories entrepreneur - who was up against stiff competition in the form of Helena Morrissey, CEO of Newton Investment Management; and Ruth Rogers, founder of the River Café - was surprised and delighted to accept the prize.
"It is the greatest honour to win the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman award in its 40th year," Hindmarch said. "It is a very real compliment to be deemed to share some of the qualities of Veuve Clicquot herself - who was clearly a brave and pioneering woman - but also to even be considered amongst my fellow finalists, Helena Morrissey and Ruthie Rogers, who are both brilliant businesswomen and lovely people."


Simoens At LVMH

Picture
Maxime Simoens has joined the LVMH fold: not as a designer for one of the conglomerate's many major brands - as was rumoured in recent weeks when the Dior job was still vacant - but because Bernard Arnault has invested in the young designer's label. Simoens left his role at the helm of French label Leonard earlier this month to focus on his eponymous couture collection. Although neither the size of the investment nor the stake has been revealed, insiders have confirmed the acquisition.
"They do believe in him, and want to finance him," a source told WWD, before suggesting that the luxury group wishes to forge ties with promising designers who could one day take on its bigger brands.


Marant Wait

Picture
 Wails of consternation are sure to be heard across the UK today, as Isabel Marant delays the opening of its London store. The French label, which has become one of the fashion set's go-to brands for effortless chic, will now open in September - rather than in July as originally projected.
A spokesperson for the brand confirmed the delay, citing "unforseen circumstances" today. Isabel Marant will host what will surely be a star-studded opening party - perhaps attended by some of the label's high-profile fans including Alexa Chung, Kate Moss and Sienna Miller - in November or December following the opening.


 
 
Fur accents and jewel-box ornamentation at the neck (and therefore drawing attention around the face) were everywhere this season in the form of brooches like those at Bottega Veneta, so deliberately placed that it was hard to tell if they were a separate item or part of the dress, fabulous fur collars , and knit snoods that offered the same idea, but for a more downtown clientele.

 
 
Furs were patchworked, collaged, and constructed in new, youthful ways that reenergized and reintroduced the idea of the fur coat to a new generation of women. And when it wasn’t full-on, it was an accent—whether as a detachable collar or trimming a sleeve, hem, or pocket.
 
 
Pheobe Philo for celine this season showed a small and intiment collection as was announced due to her pregnancy she also showed a small 22 look collection featuring classic pheabe/celine looks which were very minimalist and sleek it was really back to basics. This season there were burst of bright colors to give the collection more of a graphic punch. There were cute tailored white looks, little black leather dresses and fabulous colorful furs. This collection featured great celine pieces the celine girl will be wearing next season for sure but hopefully next season celine and pheobe will return to glory. The collection will not go down in history as being the best celine collection and didn't exceed last season but still included great staple pieces think of this collection as a resort or pre fall show!!! 
 
 
CELINE has cancelled its catwalk show this season in order to decrease demands on creative director Phoebe Philo. The designer is expecting her third child this April and LVMH is taking no chances with its star girl.
"A runway show is a very demanding and personal engagement for a creative director," Marco Gobbetti, chief executive officer of Celine, toldWWD. "The objective is to simplify."
