History of Celine

Celine, founded in 1945 by Céline Vipiana, began with bespoke children's shoes and later became renowned for its minimalist aesthetic and contemporary elegance under designer Phoebe Philo in the early 2000s. Philo's tenure introduced iconic pieces like the Luggage Tote, solidifying Céline's status as a luxury powerhouse. In 2018, Hedi Slimane's appointment as artistic director brought a more youthful and edgy vibe to the brand, while maintaining its reputation for timeless sophistication.
