CELINE Homme SS23 Presents Dysfunctional Bauhaus


Hedi Slimane has come into his own at CELINE. The designer who previously served as Creative Director of Saint Laurent and Dior Homme extended his record with this latest show in Paris.

What began at Yves Saint Laurent in 1997, grew ever stronger, and finally became synonymous with Slimane. When the designer moved to Dior he brought his rock-inspired aesthetic. By the time Slimane arrived at Saint Laurent again in the aughts, his designs were cemented and easily recognized. Now at CELINE, Slimane is continuing to fortify his legacy as a designer who mixes classic wear with grunge silhouettes.

In true Slimane fashion, his latest collection, “Dysfunctional Bauhaus,” was filled with rock-inspired looks. Artfully faded jeans had open hems, while stovepipe leather pants were paired with pointy boots that featured cone-shaped heels. Blousons came with fancy studs, fringes and sequins all over.

One of the pieces that particularly stood out was a shimmery crocodile blazer that would have had Elvis week at the knee. Tuxedos and black suits were paired with ultra slim—practically abstracted—ties. The collection was full of pieces that brought back pink, rockability, and emo aesthetics. Moreover, Slimane worked with the estate of the late Swiss artist David Weiss, and the work of the artist was manifest in the various prints and embroidery that the collection featured.

The show was a hit, attended by rockstars and other artists including mega k-pop band BTS. It was a night for rockability, which no one translates to fashion better than Hedi Slimane.
