Taking a stylish stroll down memory lane, Celine Winter 2023 drapes nostalgia in runway-ready silhouettes.
In the heart of Los Angeles, Celine unveiled its Winter 2023 collection, titled ‘Age of Indieness’ at the iconic Wiltern Theater, an Art Deco masterpiece standing tall since 1931. Helmed by Hedi Slimane, this electric indie-core capsule marries nostalgic 90s and noughties vibes with the present. The show’s backdrop, known for its performances by legendary artists ranging from Prince to Patti Smith, perfectly complements Celine’s nod to eras bygone. At the forefront of this campaign, the iconic American model Lulu Tenney was impeccably captured by Slimane, presenting a dynamic fusion of past and present.
The collection itself is a masterclass in blending the rawness of indie grunge with the flamboyant glamor of the 2000s. From audacious prints layered beneath tight leather jeans to military-inspired silhouettes juxtaposed with sequined jackets, each piece stands as a testament to the eclectic spirit of turn-of-the-century fashion. Eveningwear in the collection shines a spotlight on old Hollywood opulence, with shimmering fringed dresses and draped gowns evoking images of starlets from the silver screen era.
Yet, it’s the accessories that complete this retro journey: oversized sunglasses call back to Hollywood icons of the past, while knee-high boots and leather totes exude a contemporary, edgy sophistication. Through this collection, Celine celebrates the timeless essence of style, encouraging today's fashion enthusiasts to delve into the archives and embrace their inner rockstar, transcending eras and creating timeless elegance.
