Still in mourning? Pick up a brand new t-shirt to help ease the pain…
When Phoebe Philo’s exit from Céline was announced it sent shockwaves through the fashion community. Philo was known for her dedication to dressing a woman’s body and her designs were chic and fashionable but inclusive at the same time. She was a powerhouse for the brand churning out hit after hit in the form of bags, RTW, shoes and accessories. Though it was no secret that she would be missed, even Philo herself couldn’t have predicted the backlash that was to come from both her exit as well as new creative director Hedi Slimane’s first collection for the brand.
Fans on social media began connecting over a shared sense of loss and the hashtag #oldceline began trending on Instagram. Soon, an Instagram account was created specifically dedicated to celebrating Phoebe Philo’s ten year legacy at Céline called @oldceline—but of course—which soon amassed a following of nearly 200K followers.
Now, the creator behind @oldceline has launched a website with an online store which sells merchandise that commemorates Philo’s tenure at Céline. The shop sells t-shirt’s, scarves and stickers that read ‘Old Céline 2008-2018’ and a label that reads ‘May Cause Strong Feelings of Nostalgia.’ The merch is available at oldceline.com.
