Hedi Slimane Captures His Childhood For Celine’s Latest Fragrance

Hedi Slimane’s latest fragrance launch for Celine, Rimbaud, looks set to be the scent of the season. When Hedi Slimane launched his first range of fragrances for Celine back in 2019, his focus was firmly on the olfactory ability to recreate a memory. The artistic, creative and image director’s latest fragrance, Rimbaud, is no different, once more reviving the traditional savoir-faire of French haute parfumerie through some of his most treasured childhood memories.

The Rapper and Hedi Slimane Muse Leikeli47 Eats Interview for Breakfast

You may not recognize Leikeli47 on the street—in fact, nobody would. But you’ve likely heard her music. The rapper and producer, who wears a mask during public appearances, has maintained a low profile that has allowed her music—joyful, genre-bending hip-hop—to speak for itself. After spending years posting tracks online and subsisting on SoundCloud likes, the Brooklyn-based musician’s no-fucks-given exuberance caught the attention of Jay-Z in 2015 (the track in question, a warm weather anthem titled “Fuck the Summer Up,” was the namesake of his inaugural Tidal playlist). In 2017, Leikeli47 released her debut album, a hip-hop rule breaker titled Wash & Set, and quickly followed up with 2018’s critically-acclaimed Acrylic, which included the Issa Rae-approved banger “Girl Blunt.” This year, hot off the release of her new single “Chitty Bang,” Leikeli47 crossed paths with Celine’s creative director, Hedi Slimane. The photographer and designer was so captivated by the rapper’s sound and mystique that he couldn’t resist the urge to photograph her. To learn more about Celine’s latest muse, we sat down with Leikeli47 to discuss her journey from SoundCloud to festival stage, working with Hedi, and eating Interview for breakfast.

Daily News: Guram Gvasalia Named Creative Director Of Vetements, Is Hedi Slimane Mad At Vogue?

After Vogue Runway did not cover Celine Spring Summer ’22, the rumor mill went into overdrive with whispers that creative, artistic, and image director Hedi Slimane will no longer work with the global media brand, over ousted Vogue Paris editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt. A source from the publication was reported as saying: “It was not our decision to not cover spring 2022, but we look forward to covering the brand’s next show.” WWD also writes that Celine’s advertising deal with Vogue has been halted. On Instagram, an anonymous tip speculated that Celine would not be passing on invitations to shows or sending any samples to any Condé Nast publications—although that has not been confirmed officially by any representative from the publishing company or the brant itself.

Celine SS22: Hedi Slimane escapes to the French Riviera

What better way to end the year (well, almost) than with a surprise Celine show?. In honour of the French fashion behemoth’s SS22 collection, creative director Hedi Slimane made a 10-minute short film, Baie des Anges, which dropped today. Shot in Nice in the South of France, it showcases the city’s impressive architecture and rich history just as much as it does Slimane’s clothes.

Izzy Camina, Celine’s Muse of the Moment, on Collaborating With Hedi Slimane

For Celine Homme’s Summer 2022 show, Hedi Slimane transported viewers to the South of France, where the boys walked, with ’70s rock star flair, to the dance-y electronic stylings of the musician and producer Izzy Camina. Among the tracks played was “UP N DOWN,” a distinctive club bop co-produced by Camina and Slimane, which also serves as the heady backdrop to the label’s latest show film, “Cosmic Cruiser.”

How TikTok Helped Hedi Slimane Kill the Skinny Jean

Hedi Slimane is the only designer on earth who can make pants headline news. In his Spring 2022 “Cosmic Cruiser” collection for Celine, the man who put the world into skinny jeans abandoned his beloved silhouette for a newer, younger model: a pair of blousy denim trousers called the ELEPHANT. This was a big deal. And to understand how we got here, you have to look at how high fashion and TikTok’s strange, ambivalent relationship—a relationship Slimane seems to understand better than any of his peers.

Hedi Slimane, Skinny Pants Prophet, Pivots to Baggy Jeans

On Tuesday, Celine dropped a summer 2022 menswear collection that featured what at first glance could pass for a pair of JNCO jeans. That would have been notable for any storied French maison, but for Celine, the move was practically seismic. The house’s artistic director is Hedi Slimane—aka the designer credited with almost singlehandedly popularizing the skinny jeans-style silhouette for men.

Even Hedi Slimane Is Jumping on the Baggy Jean Trend

Remember all those (some might say sensationalist) articles from the past year proclaiming the death of skinny jeans? Well, if Celine's menswear show today is any indication, there *may* just be some truth to that after all. So to see him send out models in extremely baggy jeans on the...

13 AW21 Celine Looks Hedi Slimane Should Save For Blackpink’s Lisa Manoban

Celine and Lisa Manoban have landed themselves in a high fashion take on the chicken and the egg scenario. With each collection released by Hedi Slimane, a tendency to lean in to the superband’s style becomes more apparent. Or, is it that Lisa’s aesthetic is now so informed by Slimane’s hand that the two have become indistinguishable? Whichever came first is insignificant at this point, let’s just say it works for both parties, and for us.

Celine’s Romy & Tabou Are The New Hit Handbags From Hedi Slimane

Hedi Slimane’s recent Celine shows have been wonderfully transportive. Stripped of the ability to go to our beloved cultural institutions in person, Slimane has taken us to French renaissance behemoth, the Château de Chambord, and now, the dramatic Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, a baroque castle in Maincy​. Models walked through the expansive, landscaped gardens, set against a backdrop of fairytale architecture, wearing youth-infused, bourgeois clothing that called for similar ceremony. Among the gold sequin ballgown skirts worn with hoodies and Kaia Gerber-inspired daywear – all spliced sexy knitwear and vintage-look denim – were two new handbag styles to sing about (incidentally, Regina Demina wrote a special Celine-inspired song, “Un Daydream” to soundtrack the autumn/winter 2021 show).

Hedi Slimane Knows We All Want to Dress Like Moody French Teens

In an industry obsessed with youth, few designers have returned to the teenage daydream well as often — and as thoroughly — as Hedi Slimane, especially with his recent collections for Celine. For Summer 2021, he went all-in on TikTok culture, sending models racing around a track in Monaco wearing Gen-Z-ready, subtly-branded baseball caps and sports bras. But with Winter 2021, he's swinging back towards his '70s chic vision for Celine, merging those bon chic bon genre sensibilities with a sort of teenage rebellion.

Hedi Slimane to Stage First Solo Exhibition Since 2014

HEADING OUT: French gallery Almine Rech’s Shanghai outpost is to play host to Hedi Slimane’s first solo exhibition in more than six years, and his first in China. From March 19 through April 30, the gallery will present “Sun of Sound,” an exhibition featuring Slimane’s works focused on the music scene. It includes “Sonic,” a series of studio portraits of musicians including Lou Reed, Keith Richards and Amy Winehouse that debuted at the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent in Paris in 2014, when he most recently exhibited his artworks solo.

Hedi Slimane photographs Celine’s A/W21 Château de Chambord show location

For Celine’s A/W21 collection, Hedi Slimane brought a contemporary spin to the chivalric codes of the medieval period. In last season’s collection films, the brand touched down on the colourful tarmac of sports stadiums and motorsport racing tracks, in the south of France and Monaco, but for autumn, Celine’s models emerged on horseback, brandishing ‘Celine’ emblazoned flags, and galloped as heroic knights, to the keep of the Château de Chambord in France’s Loire Valley.

It’s perfect precisely because it’s a world away from this one, superbly articulated in the virtual fashion show Celine released.
