The Céline Piece the Fashion Set Is Buying as a Phoebe Philo Memento

When it was announced that Phoebe Philo was leaving Céline, I saw endless Instagram posts about buying her final contributions to the house. Five months later, there is one Céline piece, in particular, that the fashion set is stockpiling as a Phoebe memento—the bronze oversize alphabet charms. These are $360 and feel really personal, as you can wear them in either your own initials or the initials of someone important to you. Or you might want three Ws in a nod to your favorite website…

Although we have lost count of the number of people we've seen wearing these charms, don't let that put you off, as the below pictures prove that this is a timeless piece that you can style in your own unique way. So if, like us, you've been dreading the final goodbye of Philo, here's one way you can have a piece of her Céline legacy forever.

Style Notes: These alphabet necklaces look amazing paired with shell necklaces.

Style Notes: It might be a chunky necklace, but that doesn't mean you have to pair it with delicate pendants—it looks perfect with a chunky chain too.

Style Notes: The white T-shirt, lilac blazer, and alphabet necklace outfit is a favorite combination.

Style Notes: We love how Andrea Rognstad layered hers with a classic pleated scarf.
