Discover the enchanting world of the Celine Summer ’24 collection, Tomboy, as Hedi Slimane blends history, architecture, and style at Paris’s Bibliothèque Nationale.
If you’re seeking the perfect blend of history, architecture, and modern style, look no further than Celine’s (Instagram) Summer ’24 collection, Tomboy. Hedi Slimane, the creative genius behind the iconic fashion brand, unveiled this captivating narrative at the historic Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.
In the heart of Paris, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BNF) stands as a symbol of rich history and cultural heritage. The BNF, just across the rue Vivienne from Celine’s ateliers, boasts a legacy dating back to the Middle Ages. It’s a fitting backdrop for a collection that beautifully weaves the past into the present.
Tomboy’s campaign video takes viewers on a journey through the architectural wonders of the BNF. From the historic “Salle Labrouste,” a masterpiece by Henri Labrouste, to the enchanting “Galerie Vivienne” and the timeless “Cour d’Honneur,” this collection’s cinematic journey transcends the boundaries of the library. The Bir-Hakeim Bridge provides a picturesque setting for ethereal moments.
Slimane continues to embrace androgynous tailoring, a signature style that has been a constant throughout his career. From start to finish, Celine’s Tomboy collection strikes a harmonious balance between masculine flair and feminine grace. It’s a celebration of fluid fashion and timeless elegance.
In addition to its fashion-forward designs, Celine is dedicated to craftsmanship and sustainability. The brand’s strict no fur policy is evident in its use of shearling. Each couture jacket and dress is meticulously embroidered by hand, showcasing the brand’s commitment to excellence. Notably, models wore leather headphones embossed with the iconic Celine Triomphe, a special collaboration with Master & Dynamic.
As the collection unfolds against the backdrop of BNF’s architectural splendors, the extended version of “Too Much Love” by LCD Soundsystem pulses through the atmosphere. This iconic track has left a profound mark on indie electronic music and club scenes, enveloping viewers in a sensory journey through the androgynous world of Tomboy.
Celine’s Summer ’24 collection is a breathtaking fusion of architectural magnificence, historical resonance, and androgynous tailoring. Crafted under the watchful eye of Slimane, it’s a symphony where history, art, music, and fashion converge, promising a summer of timeless elegance.
