Located in Barneys New York at Copley Place: French ready-to-wear and leather goods company Céline was founded by Céline Vipiana in 1945. Originally a maker of luxury children’s shoes, the brand expanded into women’s ready-to-wear in 1960 and found its niche crafting effortless, sporty attire for chic Parisian women. In 2008 designer Phoebe Philo was appointed creative director, bringing her minimalist style and boy-meets-girl silhouettes to the label. Today, along with its phenomenally successful line of separates, Céline’s elegantly understated handbags are coveted worldwide.
