Icons: Phoebe Philo

Rereading the charming T Magazine profile of Philo from February, I was struck by her slow-fashion philosophy (Philo-sophy?) in this quote on following up her much-heralded SS10 collection for CĂ©line, the one with those much-imitated leather T-shirts:
“It’ll be a continuation,” she says. “There’ll be great fabrics, and great cuts. Those are the things that always work and give women the investment pieces that seem relevant again now. This coat, for example, I imagine I’ll still be wearing it in 10 years’ time.”
