Phoebe Philo (Ce­line)

Philo is seen as the ob­vi­ous front-run­ner by many. The highly re­spected de­signer has worked with Gob­betti and has a track record of re­viv­ing her­itage la­bels. Good ex­pe­ri­ence in jug­gling com­mer­cial de­mands with cre­ative flair but her re­cent move to Ker­ing’s Gucci could make her too ex­pen­sive to poach. Highly feted de­signer but viewed as an es­tab­lish­ment fig­ure that might fail to de­liver fresh ex­cite­ment to the Burberry brand. Could be a safe pair of hands.
