Hedi Slimane reimagines his classic woman for Celine




After choosing the Castellet motorsports race track in Var, France as the location to showcase Celine’s menswear collection in summer, Slimane selected the monumental Louis II stadium in Monaco to stage his women’s ready-to-wear show for spring on Monday.

Slimane continues to be inspired by the US. The country’s streetwear, high schools, and skate parks, which inspired his menswear showcase in July, gave way this time to college campuses to redefine the Celine woman in a younger, more casual manner, with a nineties spirit.
With a cap perched on her head, the new Celine woman favors sweaters, mini-knitwear with nautical stripes, crop tops, and even bras, which she wears under small jackets or camouflage outers paired with running shorts in luxury leather or faded jeans with holes in. Teddies and windbreakers added to the look of the rebellious student, as did denim vests slipped on over hoodies.

The shoes were strictly flat. What could be more apt for this show of athleticism to the lively beat of ‘I like him,’ by New York-based rapper Princess Nokia? Sports shoes, in Pataugas-style lace-up canvas, boots, and even practical style sandals worn with socks featured. There was something for every taste. Another notable feature was Breton style fisherman’s rubber boots, the ankle-length version of which should prove the most popular.
