For Celine’s latest AW21 men’s show, Hedi Slimane enlisted the help of Los Angeles-based artist Cambria Guevara. Also known as Mermaid Hex, the creative specializes in drawing, painting, printing, sewing, and tattoo design typically inspired by the desert, cartoons, and music. For this collection, Guevara contributed “Strange” (2017) and “Out of My Mind” (2019), which are printed on Slimane’s ‘90s-inspired designs. Titled “Teen Knight Poem,” the collection represents a coming to life, where the younger generation reinvents themselves through studded denim jackets, ruffled collar buttonups, and an eye-popping limited-edition skateboard.

Slimane’s bold sweatshirts and accessories are paired with Guevara’s “Strange” typography art to evoke 16th-century romanticism often associated with knighthood and squires. Like the knights once did, models strutted through the halls of one of the most recognizable châteaux in the world, Château de Chambord in France’s Loire region for Celine’s presentation. With the newest collection, Slimane and his team present a contemporary collection that draws heavily from the past.
