Joan Didion is a writer whose books have been an influential part of literature and American culture for the past 50 years. Didion’s influence extends beyond the world of literature; her timeless style has turned into fashion inspiration for designers, stylists, and artists.

Céline's latest ad campaign featuring the legendary Joan Didion is intelligent! Who better to represent Philo's aesthetic than than Didion. This move just elevated the French House to new heights; I am impressed.
