    This is a twist I did not see coming. But I'm excited to see Céline menswear for what it's worth.

    So he ruined YSL and will now do the same at Celine? I'm disappointed.

    Ruined? Tell that to the revenues he generated there...



    Definitely didn't see this coming. Does that mean he will move the Celine atelier to LA?:shock:

    I couldn't care less. I'm talking about the clothes here.

    The fact that he remains in LA makes things only worse. I don't expect him to find any source of inspiration there.

    April's Fool arrived early this year, I honestly pinched myself just to make sure it wasn't a dream.

    P.S.: I'm giggling internally as I think of all the meltdowns that will surely ensue in this forum...

    I really didn't see that coming, hopefully he'll be more inspired than he was at YSL, but I'm really scared...

    I have mixed feelings about this unexpected news. Guess I'll have to see his first womenswear and menswear collection, then comments

    He brought back YSL from financial, and relevancy death, so he sure is a great choice. I am shocked because, didn't he once say he really resents LVMH suits, and how they operate without appreciation for design talent? Now he is back? Maybe having 100% control was the deal breaker, can't blame him, and hope he doesn't regret it.

    Didn't expect this, at all, but will be interesting to see what course he takes the brand in!

    Now that's a plot twist! Smart move on LVMH's part, I suppose. But we all know he's going to do what he's always done. I guess Celine is the perfect house for him to go to since there's no real archive or history to reference. Phoebe made it her own, and Hedi will do the same. I'm sure all the ****boys in the L01 jackets will be more than happy.

    I love him! Can't wait to see where he will take the Céline house, and how the menswear collections will approach.

    Thank God indeed!

    I know right? How is this possible...

    Funny he said that while he makes the most ordinary clothes himself.

    This is really surprising and really fantastic. On the one hand it's almost a fact that he won't design for the same mature women and he'll do something like Saint Laurent-Forever 21, but on the other hand he is so needed. His influence is still visible almost everywhere. And I like that he wants to expand the house with menswear and made-to-measure. I think he might have total control now, just like they gave it to Phoebe, for example when she wanted to move her design studio to London.

    It's important that it's not a 'Céline lover' that got appointed because the house needs really strong aesthetic after Philo to maintain its success without getting watered down.

    BTW Pilati is employed, he does his Random Identities thing.

    That's just such a general statement to make, contra to the evidence which supports otherwise. People bought the clothes in droves, which is why he was successful. As a matter of your personal taste, then sure he may have ruined it for you.


    Anyway, I'm excited to see how he shakes up the brand. I'm all for shaking up fashion these days, and especially for a new menswear brand. The good lord knows that market needs some excitement.

    Totally! Elbaz and Pilati NEED to be given something ASAP!
    They still have a very loyal clientele that would follow them to a different house.
    I'd love to see Elbaz move to Chanel after KL or even to Givenchy.

    So Céline mens = Dior Homme, and womens = YSL?
