Celine takes over the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles
From the skinny scarves to the soundtrack, there was an unmistakable mid-aughts influence to Celine’s Winter ’23 collection, which Hedi Slimane unveiled in Los Angeles last night. The runway-meets-concert took place at Koreatown’s 1930-era art deco Wiltern Theater, a landmark intrinsic with music having welcomed no shortage of major stars over the decades. For ‘Age of Indieness,’ Slimane paid specific attention to the playlist, commissioning and co-producing a track by The White Stripes and welcoming Iggy Pop, Interpol, and The Strokes for a performance post-show. As for the colossal co-ed offering of 87 looks, the Winter ’23 collection featured many of the pieces that have become a runaway success for the brand. Think: embroidered folksy waistcoats, Breton tops, army jackets, and skinny leather pants that wouldn’t look out of place on Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Alexa Chung et al at Glastonbury, as well as edgy rock n’ roll-esque suiting and bourgeois ruffled blouses. Furthermore, there was a specific emphasis on couture, with numerous scene-stealing hand-embroidered sparkling gowns and jackets. If you too are wondering how the ’00s indie scene is already considered a vintage reference point, it’s probably time to double down on the Retinol in your skincare routine—but in the meantime, peep the Age of Indieness now below.
