At its best, high fashion can feel like gallery-worthy art. Creative Director Hedi Slimane invites the comparison on several levels with “Dysfunctional Bauhaus,” a striking menswear retrospective, seen here on model and friend of the house, Seth Lee. Donning a tailored wool jacket with couture-inspired elements with embroidery filled with charms, brooches, patches, and a touch of fringe, the standout piece helps signal a new chapter of flair for the Parisian house.

And for Celine’s 15 Men’s Summer 2023 collection, the new lineup just so happens to incorporate artwork from several influential creatives, including renowned Swiss artist David Weiss. Splitting time between his native Zürich, Carona, and Los Angeles, the late artist created a masterful body of work that reimagines the everyday in surprising new shapes and palettes.

Slimane spotlights Weiss’s transformative take on waves, featuring his ocean paintings on the decks of effortlessly cool Celine skateboards. Celine’s sporty accessory captures the dynamism of Weiss’s work, the sweeping blue brushstrokes and peals of white foam ready to flash in sight during kickflips and ollies. As skate and surf culture have long been intertwined, the four-wheeler is the perfect canvas for Weiss’s splashy designs—which are sure to make you the envy of the skate park.
