PHI to shut down


The recession has claimed another victim— PHI, the six year old label based in New York, found by Susan Dell is shutting down by the end of this month. It’s a shame, under Andreas Melbostad the label was slowly getting recognized and becoming a force to be reckoned with. Critics love them and the front row-ers include an ‘it’ crowd of Lauren Santo Domingo, the Trainas, Carine Roitfeld and Anna Dello Russo.

And remember all the Meisel lensed campaigns? Fall 2008— Coco Rocha and Karen Elson, Spring 2009 — Kinga and Viktoriya, Fall 2009 the fiercest of them all— Natasha, Anna and Sasha.

Vogue approval — Gisele Bündchen in PHI, Vogue US May 2009

To grab your last bit of PHI, visit the store at SoHo NY for the resort ’10 collection, 85% of which will be under US$1000. No words on whether there will be pieces from the Spring ’10 collection for sale.
