Celine has revealed its new Fall/Winter 2022 collection, and it’s the epitome of chic French street style.
The runway event titled, ‘Dans Paris’ took place on May 4th and was held across two iconic locations in Paris: Hôtel de la Marine, and Hôtel National des Invalides.
Hedi Slimane, Celine’s Creative Director, paid homage to French history by choosing the newly restored Salons D’Apparat for the backdrop of this show. The 18th-century building is lavishly gilded and decorated with sculptures, mirrors and carvings in nautical themes, and is where the French naval receptions and balls were previously held.
In a contrast to the formal fashion that would have been worn during this era, the models walked through the historic golden hallways wearing denim, leather and sequins, each look completed by framed black glasses: a celebration and understanding of modern-cool-girl fashion.
The collection features distressed bootcut jeans and oversized knits, layered with blazers and long trench coats. Each outfit is paired with black leather boots for warm, wrapped up daytime wear.
For his evening wear and accessories, Slimane focused on dark wintery tones. Black and brown mini dresses, leather skirts and jackets, and even a floor-length sequined gown are all paired with chunky black boots, capturing the chicness and effortlessness of the French style.
