A Philo Finish

With Fashion Week just touching off here in New York, I'm already looking to next season, since Phoebe Philo has been confirmed to head up Celine and will present the house's first collection in Paris next March.

And it's not just that I'm trying to calculate how long it will take her to revive a brand that many see as stodgy. I'm also trying to figure out whether it's in her master plan to ever design under her own name.

She certainly has the star power and the track record to prove she could turn any label to gold. So I'm surprised that the suits at LVMH (which owns Celine and just about every other luxury brand under the sun) hasn't thrown trunkcases of euros at her stilettoed feet to do just that?
