When Stella McCartney departed Chloé in 2001 to set up her own label, the brand’s then-president Ralph Toledano picked McCartney’s longtime assistant Phoebe Philo to take over the design mantle. The new recruit had been immersed in the brand for the past four years.
At the time, Toledano said that Philo “represents what the Chloé customer is about today. Phoebe has, together with Stella, created the new image of Chloé. For me, it was vital to continue on that trend, which has been behind the revival of the brand name. I’m pretty sure that women will easily identify themselves with Phoebe.”
