SECOND COMING: Philo-philes can circle Nov. 28 on their calendars — and hope it coincides with payday.
British designer Phoebe Philo, who unveiled the first designs of her new signature fashion house last month, announced Tuesday that the second delivery of her first “edit” — her term for collections — will be available for purchase beginning that day on phoebephilo.com.

Other details about this second act are under wraps. A third delivery of this edit, dubbed A1, is expected at a later date.
Philo plans to release future edits according to her own schedule, rather than the standardized fashion calendar, as she sees her new designs as seasonless and part of a continuous body of work.
The first delivery of Phoebe Philo — easily the most anticipated womenswear collection of 2023 — appears to have sold out rapidly. The label covers the gamut of categories, spanning ready-to-wear, footwear, handbags, jewelry and eyewear.
As reported, retail prices for A1 range from $1,400 to $2,400 for trousers; $2,200 to $8,500 for dresses; $3,600 to $4,800 for knits; $3,600 to $4,500 for tailored jackets; $6,900 to $12,000 for leather jackets, and $16,500 to $25,000 for shearling jackets. Shoes run from $1,100 to $1,750 and handbags from $3,500 to $8,500.
Anticipation for the collection has been building since Philo revealed in July 2021 that she would be returning to fashion with a new, independent house, and with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton as a minority investor.
One of the most revered — and bankable — designers of her generation, she is probably best known for engineering a brand rejuvenation at LVMH-owned Celine.
