>> Rumor has it that Phoebe Philo is about to give up her position as creative director of Chloe -- and the company says mum's the word (surprise). However, it seems as though there was no explosive fallout a la Roland Mouret, but rather Pheebs just wants to spend more time with her family. This all comes at an interesting time, considering Pheebs just signed a new multiyear contract last month. But it is said that she is in negotiations with the company about future collaboration. Looks like this could be my chance to swoop in and pick up the slack at Chloe -- if only. But really, I wish she would stay -- though it's true, it seems as though her heart just hasn't been in it the past couple of seasons.
