EXCLUSIVE: Celine Is Getting a Big Jump on Fall 2023

Hedi Slimane is a tad late unveiling Celine’s spring 2023 collection, but he can be early — way early — with the one he’s designing for the next season.

WWD has learned that Slimane and Celine are plotting a fashion show in Los Angeles, California, on Dec. 8 to unveil the autumn 2023 collection — greater than two months before fashion weeks for that season kick off in Latest York, London, Milan and Paris.

Meanwhile, the spring 2023 collection can be showcased as a movie, to be streamed on Celine’s website and social platforms sometime during November — greater than a month after Paris Fashion Week wrapped nearly a month of spring 2023 showings.

Celine’s spring 2023 collection was filmed on models within the south of France, however the precise timing and other details are still under wraps.

Likewise, Celine didn’t disclose a precise location for the Los Angeles runway event.

California has change into a hot spot for destination shows, with Ralph Lauren, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent amongst brands which have mounted runway displays there lately.

Celine’s fall showing joins a smattering of itinerant runway events in early December, with Dior unveiling its pre-fall menswear in Egypt on Dec. 3 and Chanel its latest Métiers d’Art collection in Senegal.

A resident of Los Angeles throughout most of his years helming Saint Laurent, Slimane staged a giant fashion show for that brand at The Hollywood Palladium in 2016.

He joined Celine as its creative and image director in 2019, leading the brand into menswear, fragrances, beachwear, made-to-order crocodile handbags — and even pet accessories.

He’s also made off-calendar timings for collection unveilings a feature of his Celine, which recently has been going from strength to strength.

Revealing its third-quarter sales results last month, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton said revenues grew 24 percent in its fashion and leather goods division, and trumpeted very strong growth at Celine.

Slimane’s obsession with L.A. subculture and the cool kids within the indie rock scene preceded his arrival at Yves Saint Laurent in 2012, and stretch back to his influential stint because the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007.

“I arrived in California in 2008, and I used to be already very drawn to Los Angeles, where I continuously went for the reason that end of the Nineteen Nineties,” he told French newspaper Le Figaro in 2018. “I’d start all my Dior collections there, in my hotel room. The town was still asleep, so it was the proper time to fill in a blank page. There was no creative or artistic stimulation yet, nor was there an emergence of a robust music scene.…[Los Angeles] has modified today. It’s been taken over and the authenticity is slowly getting lost since the megalopolis appeals to the world and the youth. Los Angeles is an open-air construction site and its mythical places are disappearing daily.”
