INTO THE BLACKThe Celine French New Wave

The first debut collection
by Hedi Slimane.


The first collection by Hedi Slimane for Celine is non seasonal.
 Both women and men equally share the 96 looks in this inaugural show.
Most of the Celine cabine are new faces and haven’t walked shows before and a large majority are exclusively walking for the show.
Hedi Slimane collaborated with Swiss-American artist Christian Marclay for the collection. Marclay’s artworks – paintings and onomatopoeic collages taken from vintage comics – appear in a variety of forms in the looks: printed on bags and pouches, found as embroidered patches on the back of jackets and parkas and beautifully transposed into a fully hand-embroidered couture dress, teddy jacket and kimono.
