This beautiful wool army jacket was introduced on the runway of Hedi's first Celine collection and immediately caught our eye as one of the standout pieces of the collection.Its just something about Hedi's designs - taking something he already knows, interpreting it in his own style & tailoring it to perfection while using the best material possible - that's what makes pieces like this so special.
We just couldn't imagine how you could improve pieces like this because they just seem to be perfect.This Jacket fits TTS in the body & sleeves but has a cropped fit for the intended look. It is constructed out of highest quality gabardine wool & layered with black viscose.
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.
