Celine closes Paris Fashion Week with bare-chested models and dazzling blazers

PARIS, June 26 (Reuters) – Celine designer Hedi Slimane despatched out a lineup of bare-chested versions in sheer, unzipped tops and stunning blazers Sunday evening, marking the return of French label to Paris Trend Week’s menswear reveals – and closing the week of occasions.

Leggy and very long-haired, they marched down a huge runway in sun shades, fingers thrust in front pockets, as spotlights blinked.

From sequin-embellished shirts to lower-slash, pores and skin-hugging pants and a shimmery crocodile blazer, Celine’s summer runway presentation was crammed with clothes imbued with an androgynous rock spirit, à la David Bowie.

A very long beige coat above a leather jacket paired with an extremely-slim tie and a white shirt included depth to slip-on sneakers and raw edged jeans.

Leopard and landscapes of coconut trees styles appeared on brief sleeve shirts though massive necklace plastrons acted as clothing.

The sparse concrete halls of the exhibit location – the Palais de Tokyo, a Style Week most loved – contrasted with the remarkable settings Slimane selected as a backdrop for his livestreamed shows all through the pandemic, with swooping drones and Renaissance castles.

The display drew crowds that swarmed the surrounding streets, hoping to catch a glimpse of South Korean star Park Bo-gum, Lisa from K-pop lady group Blackpink and V, whose real name is Kim Tae-hyung, the singer and songwriter of BTS.
