Celine homme - teen knight poem - Hedi Slimane
Nouveau romantique vibes, 16th-century French renaissance man meets the bold 90’s goth in Hedi Slimane’s fantasy “Teen Knight Poem”. Cloaked men on white horses gallop towards the Château de Chambord, the opening scene for a youth parade. 16th-century court colors of black and tan, and bright golds and silvers meet armored silhouettes, chain necklaces, leather jackets and, vests, and the ever-classic bomber jacket is spun back in time with French renaissance slope shoulders. While the show-stealer, a finesse of a ceremonial dress dazzles in fit and form with the 1,300 hours of work and 23 embroiderers it required to do it chivalrous justice. We can’t help but bow deeply to this great ode to fashion.
