CELINE HOMME’s SS23 show took place at the Palais De Tokyo late last month in celebration of its 20th anniversary and creative director, Hedi Slimane’s return to the historic venue. Slimane’s signature androgynous style, slim suits, skinny ties, and of course rock ‘n’ roll attitude were front and center for the latest collection and runway presentation. Also in the mix were Celine’s luxury leathers featured in overly decorated jackets and classic chunky solid boots. The runway video, directed by Slimane, captures the rock ‘n’ roll spirit of the range as viewers are given closer, detailed looks of the tailoring, embellishments and luxury materials used.
With an original soundtrack written and performed by Gustaf, a Brooklyn art punk band, the show was filled with high energy sound to match the edgy ambience of the collection. The set design also by Slimane included bright pulsing headlights at the back of the runway as well as mirrors hanging from the ceiling. Attendees watched in admiration from the sides as models walked fiercely past them to the rhythm of the hard drums and punchy guitar distortions. Some celebrities who attended the show were V from BTS, Blackpink’s Lisa, actor Eddie Redmayne and actress Diana Silvers.
