HEDI SLIMANE IS BACK AND JOINING CÉLINE
And so the game of musical fashion chairs continues!
Considered one of the most talented designers of our time, it’s no surprise that Hedi Slimane was appointed artistic, creative and image director of Céline after Phoebe Philo’s departure. Well, we were surprised, but when you really think about it… who else? The guy who brought cool to Saint Laurent (who also gave the name a reboot, Yves Saint Laurent is too long anyway!), the guy who took Dior Homme to another level…
“He is one of the most talented designers of our time. I have been a great admirer of his work since we collaborated on Dior Homme, which he launched to global critical acclaim in the 2000s. His arrival at Céline reinforces the great ambitions that LVMH has for this Maison,” said LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault.
Expect menswear, couture and fragrance to be added to the Céline menu, who’s excited?
