Founded in 1945 by Céline Vipiana, Celine is a French fashion house.
Celine's first store to open its doors in Paris in 1945 sells quality shoes for children. Only in 1959 a line of women's accessories was launched, subsequently also producing bags and shoes. In 1988 Michael Kors was hired as the principal designer of the women's prêt-à-porter line, the first ever of the French fashion house.
In 2001, instead, the artist Phoebe Philo took over the creative direction and consolidated the luxurious brand, which was later replaced in 2004 by the famous designer Roberto Menichetti.
The refined accessories and Celine's ultra-feminine and ultra-luxurious garments highlight the outfits of the most elegant women in the world.
The bags made with precious and refined fabrics, structured lines and exclusive chromatic features represent the strong point of the brand. Celine has always been synonymous of minimalist luxury, avant-garde femininity and functional and accessible design.
In 2018 Céline lost its accent and becomes Celine, giving way to a new chapter of its history, under the guidance of Hedi Slimane, current creative director of all the brand's collections.
