Prior to the debut of Hedi Slimane‘s first men’s-dedicated fashion show in Paris for CELINE, the house teased the event with black and white imagery of some geometric art. It was a bit of a mystery on what was to come down the runway but once it got going, it was easy to see that Hedi Slimane was doing what he did best.

For Fall/Winter 2019, CELINE’s men’s line echoed Slimane’s familiar nostalgic rock direction – teddy jackets, animal prints, studded leathers and subtle plaids all contributed to the range’s elegant, yet slightly edgy ensembles. Everything felt eerily similar to what Slimane had put out the season before for CELINE as well as Saint Laurent and even flashes of Dior. He will surely trigger frustration amongst die-hard CELINE fans but for those who’ve been loyal to Slimane’s vision will undoubtedly rake up some of these wares.

As for inspiration, FW19 was an ode to British youth. There was a glowing geometric pendulum swinging during the show where the soundtrack of the event was the song “Philosopher’s Calling” by Canadian collective Crack Cloud composed exclusively for the event. Regardless of whether you’re a fan or not, this collection will surely be a hot topic in the industry in the coming days.

Take a look at the full collection above and take time to check out our exclusive visit to Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God showroom in Paris.
