Phoebe Philo has returned. The designer that made Chloe the most covetable brand a few years ago is back on the scene. After a career break to focus on her young family, she has now taken over the reins at Celine.

Her sophisticated, yet directional style is what real, wearable fashion is all about. Clean lines, strong shapes and luxury fabrics make this a powerful collection. She has used A-line minis, cleanly tailored leather tops and a touch of military chic to create a very grown-up collection. With a beautifully understated palette of camels, taupes, black and white, the clothes ooze elegance. It's rare that such refined clothes are so exciting but that's all part of Philo's charm.

She manages to take something sedate and make it incredibly sexy.
