"I am attracted to art with dust and old architecture" - CONIE VALLESE
Vallese has rapidly become one of our favourite modern times artist. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in a very creative family, surrounded by her grandmother's paintings, her father's sculptures and her mother's interior designs, she took her influences and became the artist she is today. After studying film at UBA she moved to New York where she lives and works today not only as an artist but also a model.

REJINA PYO pushing the boundaries of aesthetic and design.
“I reference a lot of modern art in my designs, which inspires me to push the boundaries of form and color,” Pyo to Rosie Dalton. “I don’t like to think about trends when I begin a season. I like to design to my mood and what I want to be wearing at the time.” - THE LAST MAGAZINE

"I surround myself with images for their emotional qualities,... I get an energy from their tenderness, strength and glamour that I'm very responsive to." - Phoebe Philo for Gentlewoman
Phoebe has created herself many of those images that will give us that same energy. This is her last collection for CELINE. Some say is a self portrait, some say is rebel. Not wanting to be dramatic but is there any other way to say this? It is indeed the end of an era.
Philo has filled us with excitement and showed us all there is a way of being cool and comfortable breaking the edges of fashion with that "I don't even care" attitude. She brought art closer and a new perspective on minimal bold dressing.
Is not only about leaving CELINE. It's that the brand without her will never be the same and is about not having her bringing her masterpieces to us every season. We hope you come back soon Phoebe. We miss you already!
Goodbye for now and THANK YOU!
