The fifth day of fashion Week in Paris closes probably the most anticipated show of the season — debuts new creative Directors of Fashion houses always cause a special interest among the public, but in the case of Celine, Hedi Slimane anticipation of the premiere painted not only curiosity, but also a whole range of emotions from anger to, of course, delight. In the front row at the fashion show which was held in the Palace of the disabled, gathered only stars: Lady Gaga, who a few weeks ago first showed a new bag from Celine, Catherine Deneuve and others. To see the debut of our colleagues came Karl Lagerfeld and Virgil, Able, who presented a new collection of Off-White the day before.
The appointment of Slimane in the position of creative Director is Celine Phoebe Philo earlier this year provoked a mixed reaction is too different was what made Slimane before moving to a new place of work that is so carefully created Philo for the past ten years, sculpting, in fact, the brand is the way it is and adored by fans. Understanding is not found and the idea of Slimane to change the logo, though it was only about how to get rid of the accent, and completely “reset” Instagram — many viewed it almost as the desire of the old world to destroy.
Tonight the designer, a failure which, with certainty, expected, had to prove that he still come not to destroy but to create, and to convince a skeptical audience that his vision for the Celine has a right to exist.
Barely on the catwalk omarshanova drummers of the Republican guard and a model (persivale the guests were already excited, since the beginning of the show was delayed), the social network was filled with the first review. Alas, not everyone was in favor of Slimane.
He forgot he no longer works for Saint Laurent
— wrote the user, alluding to the fact that the designer once again turned to the silhouettes that have made it to the post of creative Director of Saint Laurent.
The collection, though, recalls the fact that Slimane had created, inspired by the heroin-chic British rockers like Pete Doherty — fitted suits with thin ties, tight pants, leather jackets.
At first it seems that Slimane is true to himself and still paints it black, adding a pronounced accents of relevant animalistic colors, disco silver and contrasts with the white color in different geometric forms. And then arise the emerald and scarlet dresses, jackets in the colors of the lenses of a kaleidoscope and absolutely exaggerated silhouettes.
If the show itself was held under a dynamic club music group La Femme, the final output of the models was again accompanied by a jaunty March of the drum.
It’s not Celine, it’s only Edie Slimane
— lamented those who show disappointed.
But in a situation when the brands with a long history lose their identity, to complain about it is strange. If adherents Celine frustrating even Edie Slimane, then what must feel longtime fans of Balenciaga?
