Taking to the Dôme de Paris for the third time since his stint at Celine began, Hedi Slimane presented a menswear collection for Spring 2020 with undeniable Seventies flair and brought new silhouettes to his male fashion line.
Having styled David Bowie during his world tours in another life, Celine‘s Artistic, Creative and Image Director is clearly drawn to a certain style. And having reinvented the image (and name) of Saint Laurent in his previous post to align with the youthful music scene, the two – music and fashion – are clearly intertwined and indivisible to the designer.
And for Hedi Slimane‘s menswear collection for SS20, he collaborated with South African musician David Kramer whose career kicked off in the 1970s – as did Slimane’s fashion show.
From butterfly collared shirts in deep red hues to sequin disco-esque jackets, the aesthetic was undeniable. Slimane also outlawed drainpipe cut trousers, making sure the ankles took a breath of fresh air with his latest collection. Denim was doubled up and worn high waisted – accessorised with thin braided belts. Boxy brown leather jackets, floral knit cardigans and long shaggy looks reinforced the callback.
Paying homage to Kramer, slogans from some of his songs were sprawled across tees. To see more of the looks we loved, see above.
