>> The Phoebe Philo era of Chloe is over -- it is finally confirmed that Pheebs has resigned:
"Chloe is a beautiful house with a great history, and I am proud to have worked alongside the wonderfully talented people there," Philo said. "My decision to resign is for personal reasons, including especially to spend more time with my new baby in the coming months. I want to thank the House of Chloe, the Richemont Group and of course Ralph Toledano for their support and their understanding of my decision. These past years have been exciting for all of us, and I wish the company all the best success in the future."
The Chloe design team is expected to put together the forthcoming Fall/Winter 2006 show due in March, which should be no sweat for them, as they already took care of the highly successful winter collection while Philo was on maternity leave. I am just looking forward to the announcement of the new creative director...
