Hedi Slimane Joins Céline as New Artistic and Creative Director

The former Saint Laurent designer will be adding menswear, couture and more to the brand.

In a surprise move, LVMH has announced that Hedi Slimane will be succeeding Phoebe Philo to join Céline as the brand’s new artistic, creative and image director. The news comes after Philo’s departure from Céline, which will be effective after she presents her Autumn 2018 collection in March.

LVMH chairman and chief executive Bernard Arnault writes in a statement,

“I am particularly happy that Hedi is back within the LVMH Group and taking the reins of our Céline maison. He is one of the most talented designers of our time. I have been a great admirer of his work since we collaborated on Dior Homme, which he launched to global critical acclaim in the 2000s. His arrival at Céline reinforces the great ambitions that LVMH has for this maison.”

Beginning February 1, the former Dior Homme and Saint Laurent designer will officially take the lead at the French brand. In addition to womenswear, Slimane will also be adding menswear, couture and fragrance to Céline’s offering. According to Business of Fashion, his first collection for the brand will debut during Paris Fashion Week come September.
