Celine Unveils A Cinematic Summer 2024 Collection

CELINE, a name synonymous with haute couture, recently unveiled its Women’s Summer 2024 collection in a cinematic spectacle titled “LA COLLECTION DE LA BIBLIOTHÈQUE NATIONALE.” The visionary behind this artistic revelation is none other than Hedi Slimane, the creative force behind CELINE.

This cinematic presentation weaves together fashion, history, literature, and architecture, exemplifying CELINE’s unwavering commitment to quality, innovation, and timeless style. Filmed at the prestigious Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, it is a visual journey through iconic locations such as “Salle de Lecture du Département des Manuscrits et de la Musique,” “Salle Labrouste,” “Cour Turbeuf,” “Cour d’Honneur,” “Passage Choiseul,” and the iconic Bir-Hakeim Bridge.

The collection introduces new classics and exquisite bags like the Lola, Victoire, Mini Chain Claude, and Polly models. This exceptional showcase unfolded near the CELINE Ateliers on Rue Vivienne in Paris, an evocative link to the brand’s historical legacy.

The Bibliothèque Nationale serves as a historic backdrop, transitioning from a royal library to the guardian of a rich repository of royal collections from the Middle Ages to the present. The “Cour d’Honneur” displays the evolution of French architecture with a fusion of diverse styles.

Further elevating this presentation, CELINE collaborated with Master & Dynamic, outfitting models with leather headphones featuring the iconic CELINE Triomphe emblem.

The collection is a testament to Hedi Slimane’s genius in androgynous tailoring, framed by “Tomboy” looks. It is a visual and artistic journey that transcends fashion, celebrating the harmonious intersection of fashion, history, and architecture.
