Hedi Slimane’s Celine simply oozes the quintessentially Parisian It girl charm that women the world over attempt to emulate. Each collection is an orchestration of pieces adhering to a less-is-more approach to dress, always refined and never dressed to excess. It explores the duality of French fashion, as seen in the pages of the 'Wonder' issue, lensed by Tim Ashton and styled by Hannah Cooper.

In the 'Wonder' issue, we see the collection imagined in a domestic setting, yet exuding the energy of Celine we know and love in every shot. Mini bustier dresses are paired with Condé Jodphur boots, Embroidered cardigans with Loose Check shirts and Moon Zipped boots. It is paired-back blending of the Celine House codes conceived under Slimane, with the simplicity of domesticity. Tweed coats abound, alongside staple denim jeans and graciously undone hair, evoking French girl aesthetics at every page. Yet, there is a youthfulness, something that Slimane has spoken about previously as a key inspiration to him.

“Youth is gracefulness, freedom of speech and recklessness,” Slimane has previously stated. “Youth, at the same time, can be on the lions on the grand boulevards, in the cellars of Saint-Germain and in the occupied lecture halls of the Sorbonne.”
“No matter the time in history, [the youth] are this pure energy, the exaltation of every moment and the emotion of the skin, living their lives at full speed.”
