Classic knee-high stacked-heel boots, culottes, shearlings, ladylike dresses, blazers, and capes — Hedi Slimane, Celine’s artistic, creative, and image director, showed a full-on late-70s bourgeois French girl-inspired collection. Sarah Mower put it perfectly “(t)his was old old Celine—exactly the kind of politely classy merchandise originally sold under the label before LVMH acquired it, long before even Philo’s predecessor, Michael Kors, was drafted in to make runway shows out of it.” I know this era — the American version 1979 Ralph Lauren with Clotilde, A.P.C., and more recently Vanessa Seward’s collections — and I am happy to make the top look my fall uniform with a hobo and strap wrapped boots — sigh. Second time’s a charm, Hedi.
