Following Hedi Slimane’s history of iconic white sneakers, it would be a surprise if he wouldn’t immediately introduce a great pair of classic white sneakers when entering the position of Creative Director at Celine.
The Triomphe Sneaker are probably the best white luxury sneakers you could get your hands on at the moment. With stripes on both sides and a beautiful contrast between black and white, they are not only great for skinny jeans, they work with pretty much every pants.
Hedi Slimanes debut collection for Celine was something profound and long-awaited for the industry, which was visible when the Runway presentation broke online viewing records. Because of Slimane always having trouble with corporations, he ended up spending the last few years going through lawsuits against SLP, after they misappropriated his designs and photographs. So it is no wonder that everybody got excited for Hedi to finally return to his roots of glamour and luxury, while being treated right by a brand where he could express 100% of his artistry. Besides the similarity to his previous work, that is noticeable with one eye, Hedi did an amazing job introducing himself to Celine for Spring Summer 19, and brought something back we all missed for too long witnessing Saint Laurent sucking out his legacy. For us, the debut proved one thing once again, that Hedi Slimane is the rockstar of the fashion industry that will not stop making skinny jeans and leather jackets cool.
