Just in case the Celine collection had not sent out a clear message, Creative Director Hedi Slimane’s third collection spelt it out: “Celine Art Project” read every page of the otherwise empty book handed out to the audience. (In 2018, Hedi insisted on removing the accent on the first “e”.)
There was a line-up of cool kids walking the wide runway to the repetitive beat of the Los Angeles girl trio, Automatic, singing ‘Calling It’.

The casual clothes on the sexy side, with shapely tailored navy jackets, put a focus on body-conscious jeans. The models burst out of what looked like a burning entrance (was the school on fire?) and walked purposefully down the long runway.
