Under the exacting vision of its artistic-slash-image director Hedi Slimane, the house of Celine has become the ultimate purveyor of offhand, French girl cool. And the Cruise 2022 collection – dubbed Les Grands Classiques Session 4 (“The Great Classics” in French) – is a veritable showcase of this chic ideal.
Slimane puts the focus on the casual uniform of insouciant youths while seamlessly adding posh touches in the designs. Cue varsity jackets embroidered with “C” patches that are woven from luxurious double-faced cashmere. Or how about the high-waisted stonewashed Margaret jeans that come with subtle gold-toned Triomphe gourmettes on the waist that give a nod to ’70s Parisian chic?
On the accessories front, flat shoes – ballerina flats, penny loafers, and boots – ground the collection to give it a sense of sophistication. The vintage-inspired saddle-shaped Cuir Triomphe Folco also bag makes its debut this season. Crafted from calfskin and lined with suede, the style features a large embossed Triomphe motif on the front flap and is a timeless beauty that any generation will appreciate.
