Here’s What Happened At The Celine Fall Winter 2019 Show In Paris
One disappointing and triggering
spring 2019 season later, the Celine fall 2019 show helmed by
Hedi Slimane is here. We’ve read the think pieces, we’ve had the arguments, we’ve shed the tears, and we’ve obsessively followed the #OldCeline
Instagram tribute accounts. In the 12 months since Slimane became Celine’s Creative Director, a divisive new
logo, a fresh
handbag debut, and an eerily familiar ad campaign (ahem
Saint Laurent) all offered clues and peeks into the fashion house’s future.
Last September’s show was, as expected, a complete 180 from Philo’s thoughtful, minimal Celine. Not only was it short frock o’clock, but the collection was a direct copy-and-paste from Slimane’s previous designs for Saint Laurent. (Slimane was
very much aware of the backlash.)
