CELINE'S DYSFUNCTIONAL BAUHAUS IN PARIS
The final showdown
The Palais de Tokyo was always a special place to Hedi Slimane. The French fashion designer took his Dior Homme Autumn/Winter 2002 show to the iconic venue when it was still under construction back then and 20 years later, he returned to the historical venue to reveal his Spring/Summer 2023 for Celine.
A prime fascinator for art deco monumental architecture, Slimane continued to pay tribute to the institution through his menswear reform. In true Slimane aesthetic, the sparse halls of the venue featured flashing lights, rotating mirrors hung from the ceiling and models strutting a concrete runway to an original soundtrack arranged by Gustaf, produced by Chris Coady and commissioned and co-produced by the designer himself.
As for the clothes, an androgynous rock spirit was present with a line-up of bare-chested models fronting sheer, unzipped tops and dazzling blazers, sequin-embellished or leopard-printed shirts, low-cut, skin-hugging pants and shimmery blazers. XXS ties, black sunnies, chunky combat boots and chain necklaces complete the looks.
