The helming of Hedi Slimane as artistic, creative and image director at Celine has been the catalyst of countless debates. Regardless, the French designer proceeded without falter and debuted his first collection with Celine this September in true Hedi fashion: silhouettes were trimmed and cuts were flattering.
For a closer look at Slimane’s hallmark style, Celine released its first Summer 19 Men’s Collection campaign showcasing models in key looks from the collection in a three-minute long slideshow-esque video, shot by Slimane himself:
The video is accompanied by a soundtrack from French synth-pop duo RUTH. Released in 1985, it is an emblematic song from the Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes project, which was also the key inspiration of the Summer 19 Collection, proving Slimane’s everlasting desire to merge the two facets of fashion and music.
