Céline – SS19
Céline had some sizzling looks and awe-inspiring stagecraft, but in aggregate Hedi Slimane’s debut collection was sort of superfluous.

The new post-Phoebe Céline aesthetic – radically refreshed by the exalted Hedi Slimane (he once helmed Saint Laurent) – went back to the future with full tilt 80s avant-gardism. Colliding androgyny, hyperbolic glam and New Wave nostalgia, the collection consisted of angular geometrics, super-slim fit unisex blazers, wide-winged shoulders, inverted kimonos, abstract polka dot dresses and oblong contours. A few colors were sprinkled into the mix, too. Emphasizing ‘non-binary’, Céline‘s press release stated: “The entire wardrobe worn by the male models is unisex, and therefore will also be available for women.”

Surreal silhouettes flooded the runway in the form of precision tailoring, crisp lambskin jackets and jet black jumpsuits; eye-popping animal prints and lustrous metallic finishes/sequins. The range was all razzle-dazzle with demure headgear, glitzy/goth-y veils and mop-top hairdos. Also, Hedi’s fetish for waif-size muses was on full display (Grace Hartzel and Hannah Motler – you are adorable!), and a handful of editors got ‘triggered’ when they didn’t see enough ‘non-white’ models.

But only a modicum of looks really, truly kicked ass. The bulk of the 90-plus numbers were, in our humble opinion, somewhat blasé. However, we predict every major fast fashion retailer will be knocking-off these couture looks in a jiffy, while every hip hop artist from LA to Lagos will be sporting the new Céline asap.
