I must stray once again from menswear to give notable mention to Phoebe Philo. Her A/W 11/12 collection for Céline (as shown above) was amazing. Over the last few seasons she has created a distinctive, ever so slightly androgynous, yet strongly feminine style.
Not since Hedi Slimane's collections for Dior Homme can I think of anybodies work being so consistently fresh exciting and directional as Philo's has for Céline. The line, silhouette and colour palettes have been perfect. And like Dior under Slimane, Céline as a brand has been completely transformed.
