Summer 2022 is All About Celine by Hedi Slimane
On the Mediterranean coast, ‘Baie Des Anges’ propels Celine’s tradition into the vocabulary of the new season.
For 2022, summer is synonymous with Slimane.
Creative director Hedi Slimane brings Celine womenswear to new levels for the season with the launch of Baie Des Anges, the third chapter of sleek, savvy short films directed by the powerhouse in Nice. Against upbeat, trendy music by Vitamin C, Baie Des Anges writes a new collection for Celine, one built on its existing vocabulary of feminine luxury and a slight rebelliousness—now, intertwined with the lust for life of the Promenade des Anglais seafront.
In the iconic Neo-Classical palace Le Negresco, Celine’s summer 2022 collection unfolds—every look is sleek, polished, a summer escape on the coast of France, a contemporary look for a contemporary wearer.
True to Slimane’s tradition, the collection is embedded largely in a neutral palette—crisp white, true black, interwoven with denim and pops of bright, vivid floral patterns, tailored to elevated perfection with dynamic crops and just-right hems. Against the buoyant soundtrack, models of the collection are the It Girls of the season—confidence and boldness go hand-in-hand for summer 2022, and Celine knows how to dress for the trend.
Silhouettes are sharp, symmetrical, dynamic. Two new shapes of jeans—the Polly and the Kitty—set the tone for the next year of fashion; slightly playful, definitely chic. Knits, leather and denim converge in a trio of texture, sparking a feeling of unannounced opulence in the looks.
Standout looks from the collection are those which so gracefully build upon Slimane’s tradition of heightened womenswear, while barreling into the new season and adapting for the times. An off-the-shoulder white cropped top with a black leather midi skirt and kitten heels is a take on nonchalant elegance, while a puffy asymmetrical yellow and green floral printed dress paired with a cropped black cardigan and platform white shoes announces itself in a space, demanding to be seen.
Slimane’s collection is for the modern girl, the versatile girl. Oversized hoodies paired with even bigger camo-print jackets reminisce on an urban vocabulary, while matching sweatsuits with a hint of sparkle and a kitten heel to complete the look do what Celine does best: femininity for any mood, for any season, for any woman.
