Celine Summer 22

Ice Ice Baby

In the Celine summer 2022 collection by Hedi Slimane the haughty air of the too-chic-to-care Parisian femme stifles the summer air of the gay Riviera. Included in this somewhat severe and narrow collection are crisp man-tailored shirts, bare shoulders, some stripes a scant floral print, a crop-top or two, all staples for struts under the palms on the Promenade des Anglais, Boulevard de la Croisette, and yacht launches that line this summer playground for the jet set. With an icy urgency the black leather jackets, skirts, and sheer blouses in the collection announce purpose, fortitude, and importance. Step aside, please…

 

 
 

When The Sequins Sparkle...

Not to say the Celine woman is not exceptionally stylish. Slimane’s has defined Celine with a signature pared-down glamour that is enviable and stunningly and timelessly chic. Adroit at menswear tailoring the designer limited accents of femininity is precise and effective. The soft color knits, jackets, and Broderie Anglaise tops are rays of sunshine in this collection, and the generous sparkle of sequins is perfection.  While the collection is cool, I sense that my Rosé might warm every time I catch the side-eye of the 2022 summer Celine woman. Celine.
