Philo's Back.

Fashion cried long and hard when Phoebe Philo bid adieu to the industry and the House of Chloe in 2006 to raise her young family.

Fashion then jumped up and down ecstatically when LVMH chief Bernard Arnault inserted her at the head of Celine in September 2008, marking the return of Philo and her design vision that beckons to many who love the sartorial.

Oh, what a triumphant return it's been.

She showed her first collection -- which included a good number of suits, separates and cocktail dresses -- for the French label during the recent Resort 2010, a re-entrance that had editors, buyers, stylists and their ilk clamoring for a closer look.

And accessories fans, she's taking care of that category, too, so if you can't afford the apparel, at least you can financially handle the bags.

Welcome home, Phoebe Philo.

I'm Lovin' it: Keep sneaks in The Ramos midtop. Tried on a pair in Livestock a few months ago in a purple/black colorway and didn't end up getting them that time. Then I saw them again at another sneak shop and wondered why I hadn't gotten them in the first place.

I'm Over it: Birds have an affinity for using my car as a toilet. Why?!

Music of the Day: The Engineers from the UK. Easy-going, slightly trippy electro-rock that's probably best described as shoegaze. Their second album Three Fact Fader hits store on July 6. Mark it down.
