“You possibly can solely be fortunate sufficient to have one model, a mode of your personal that turns into a caricature of you, your personal ‘sound. I’m in all probability synonymous [with] punk rock and indieness in trend, beside being identified for my androgynous fashions. I’ve been exactly this in trend for greater than 20 years. That is the caricature I gladly personal.”
Hedi Slimane

Proof that in the event you simply stand nonetheless and do your factor, trend ultimately catches up with you, Hedi Slimane is as soon as once more haute stuff. With income doubled since his arrival, Slimane’s latest LA Celine AW23 present (half trend present, half ‘indie sleaze’ rock live performance) unapologetically introduced his personal best hits entrance and centre. Now licensed ‘New Celine’ signatures, he confirmed ladies with tight denims tucked into stack-heeled boots; the proper bourgeois blazer; boys suited and booted in slim tailoring and patent leather-based; messy centre-parted bobs and Patti Smith-worthy slender silk scarves for all.

For Slimane, the throwback styling is a part of a craving for a pre-digital period that proper now looks like a secure area. “September 2001 modified every little thing – the dynamic, our perception that each one was attainable. From that second of mourning and despair, I misplaced religion in a sure digital utopia which was on the coronary heart of the artistic vitality and sound in Europe on the time. I went again to analog in each pictures and design, and to DIY, and developed a mode round it,” he mentioned of his ‘age of indieness’ nostalgia.

Having emerged from a quick post-lockdown maximalist period, some are sensing a return to timeworn classics, albeit with some rock-n-rebellion swagger. To that time, I wouldn’t be in any respect stunned to see the likes of Harry Types pivot to this Jagger-lite look (the gold swimsuit!) as a departure from Alessandro Michele-era kitsch-schtick Gucci.
