BREAKING NEWS — Less than 24 hours ago, French photographer and designer Hedi Slimane was announced to succeed Phoebe Philo at Céline.
The news surrounding Philo’s departure caused a stir as to who might succeed in helming the brand. The role comes with great excitement and expectation, as Philo’s decade-long work built an empire for intellectual, minimalist clothing. Her highly sought-after bags remain timeless investments to date.
Slimane will be presenting his first collection for the Parisian label in September, adding on an extensive range of couture, menswear and even fragrance collection. The artistic director, formerly of Dior Homme and Saint Laurent Paris, is known for his skinny-man aesthetic and has been shaping the way we dress.
Céline by Hedi Slimane will debut in September for Paris Fashion week, so stay tuned!
