It doesn’t get more Parisian than CELINE, and for its latest show called DANS PARIS, the label pays homage to its roots by photographing its collection in two of the city’s historic landmarks.
The first part of the collection takes place in the restored “Salons D’Apparat” at the Hôtel de la Marine, which is a historic 18th century building on Place de la Concorde. The collection has been photographed by Hedi Slimane himself and captures the impressive history of the building which has hosted lavish receptions and the coronation balls of Napoleon and King Charles X.
Taking everyday essentials such as jeans and blazers and elevating them is one of the designer’s specialities. Each look in the collection is unmistakably elegant, whether it’s with a pair of denim trousers or a sequined mini dress. Using luxurious materials such as leather, the collection includes trousers, skirts, jackets, boots and heels.
Slimane has also experimented with graphics and colours, combining a snakeskin print skirt in shades of yellow and brown with a striped knitted jumper in red, white and blue. Layers, coats and blazers are also key in this collection, as well as eyewear and bags. Highlights include the Shoulder Chain Matelassé Monochrome Celine, the Medium Triomphe Frame and the Trapeze Triomphe.
