Go with the Phlo

Exclusive: Phlo Finister for Chelsea Girl

River Island is tipping Phlo Finister for big things – the first being the star of its Chelsea Girl Christmas campaign.

The LA-based musician and former stylist, who counts Azealia Banks (from whom you can read more in the December issue of ELLE) and Peaches Geldof among her Twitter fans, is starting out in the UK right with the high-profile fashion gig.

‘What attracted us to Phlo was her distinct sense of vintage style,’ a spokesperson for River Island tells us. ‘Phlo heavily draws on inspiration from the Mod era, which you can see is carefully put together in her day to day wear.


‘Teaming Phlo’s retro look along with the vintage inspired pieces from Chelsea Girl’s autumn/winter 2013 collection was the perfect match.’

We’ll see just how perfect when the campaign is unveiled – along with details of a special in-store performance – later this month.
