Vogue reports today:

AFTER a two-year sojourn outside the fashion lines, former Chloe creative director Phoebe Philo is making a comeback - as the new creative director of Celine.

Both fashion labels are owned by luxury mega-firm LVMH and Philo so impressed its ceo, Bernhard Arnault, with her directional handling of Chloe between 2001 and 2006 that she was an obvious choice upon which to call for the Celine shake-up.

"By giving her Celine, we're giving her a platform to express her vision," says Pierre-Yves Roussel, ceo of LVMH's fashion division. "For Celine, which is a bit more grown-up as a brand, the fit is very good in terms of her style, her personality and where she is in terms of her own development."

Having spent her time away from the fashion limelight bringing up her young family, Philo hops back in the saddle next month and will present her first Celine collection next March for the autumn/winter 2008-9 season.

"In the current climate customers are looking for something that will get them interested and excited about buying again," she tells WWD. "I want to create clothes, shoes, bags and accessories that are relevant to right now - modern, exciting designs that women will desire and appreciate."

I am so happy Phoebe is coming back! And to a house that could potentially make a HUGE turn-around under her capable and talented hands. I was devastated when she left Chloe. The brand has not been the same since.

Welcome back Phoebe!
