Wherever your opinion on Hedi Slimane stands, one thing is hard to debate:he’s obviously got a knack for merchandising, as proven by the incredible numbers at his previous tenure.
Now, Slimane’s bringing the same magic to Celine – already evidenced earlier this year with the house’s first perfume collection that will reportedly debut (very) early next year in Singapore. The French house’s next launch is set to further expand the Celine universe with a new lifestyle accessories line titled Maison Celine.
Maison Celine comprises of items such as small homeware pieces (paperweights), grooming (beauty/travel kits and the like), games (dices/card sets that come in their own leather cases and more), whimsical objects (metal match boxes, for example) and yes, even accessories to accompany the perfumes.
As of press time, the nearest place you can get your hands on this new lifestyle range is at Celine’s men’s store at Landmark in Hong Kong – let’s hope it hits our shores soon. Above, a selection of our favourite pieces:
