Reinvigorated by Michael Kors in the late 1990s, Céline got another much-needed jolt when Phoebe Philo arrived in 2009 and began dazzling the critics with her focused approach. Philo's characteristically refined tailoring and attention to minute details underlie the seeming simplicity of her styles, which veer from flowing pants and long, unstructured jackets to streamlined swing skirts. Along with the ready-to-wear, Céline's exquisite bags and shoes are staples for Paris's fashion cognoscenti. The new Avenue Montaigne flagship carries the full line, including eyewear and perfume. There's also a St-Germain boutique on Rue de Grenelle.
