Celine- is a French ready-to-wear and leather goods luxury brand that has been owned by LVMH group since 1996. It was founded in 1945 by Celine Vipiana. Since November 2015, the headquarters are located at 16 rue Vivienne in Paris, at the Colbert de Torcy's private mansion, which has French Historic Monument classification.Marco Gobbetti is the president and the chief executive officer of the brand.
In 1960, the brand decided to change its positioning by focusing its business on a ready-to-wear fashion brand for women with a sportswear approach. Henceforth, the brand offered a range of leather goods such as handbags, loafers, gloves and clothes. Celine Vipiana remained the designer from 1945-1997.
In 1964, the launch of the new fragrance "Vent fou" and the new 'American Sulky' collection of accessories gained a lot of success. The trench became the iconic product of the house. Prompted by the popularity of leather and dedicated to the quality of production, Celine opened a leather goods factory in Florence.
In 1973, Celine redesigned its logo with the intertwined "C" Sulky canvas, linked to the Arc-de-Triomphe, which appeared as a symbol for Parisians. At that time, Celine began its expansion in the world with the opening of various boutiques in Monte Carlo, Geneva, Hong Kong, Lausanne, Toronto and Beverly Hills.
The brand's founders wished to be part of a charitable association, so Richard Viapiana established the Celine-Pasteur Prize, a sponsor for the American Hospital of Paris in 1973.
In 1996 Celine joined the LVMH Group and rapidly developed its ready-to-wear & accessory collections, while remaining to its style and original values.
