Another reason I want to attend Central Saint Martins in London: Phoebe Philo, Creative Director, board member, and now designer for Celine.

Celine has been around since 1945, but has been somewhat second rate until Philo stepped in. Although the brand is carried at select Barneys locations, it is still not widely available and therefore not overexposed.

My first experience with the line was with a pair of sunglasses I fell in love with in high school- now I am carrying the shopper daily and stalking e-tailers for a discount on the LVMH-owned brand.

(LVMH= Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Christian Dior and about 57 others)

All of that to say, nearly a decade later, Celine is one of my top two favorite accessories designers and I have fallen in love with another pair of their sunglasses and they are on SALE!
