These Berlin Boots were one of the cleanest footwear pieces of Hedi Slimanes Celine debut. While the famous version of the silhouette features three buckles around the front that make them heavily outstanding, this piece is more simple while keeping the initial elements very visible. The high 5cm heels, the shape and the western aesthetic makes this a must-have for every Hedi fan.

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.
