Hedi Slimane to join Céline

Hedi Slimane has been appointed artistic, creative and image director of Céline.

He will join the business in February and head up all of the LVMH-owned label’s collections, including overseeing the launch of men’s fashion, couture and fragrances.

Longstanding Céline creative director Phoebe Philo announced she was leaving the label in December.

Chairman and CEO of LVMH, Bernard Arnault, said: “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.

He added: ”Hedi will oversee and develop all creativity for both women’s and men’s fashion, but also for leather goods, accessories and fragrances.

”He will leverage his global vision and unique aesthetic virtuosity in further building an iconic French maison”.

Slimane left his role as creative and image director at Saint Laurent in April 2016 after four years in the business. He previously headed up Dior Homme.
