    What are your favourite pieces? Mostly the ones you posted on Instagram?

    Yeh I like the jackets from both those pictures and the pinstripe trousers from the first picture. Also really like the black and white leather plus the boots and derbies.

    Especially love this pair

    Hoping the denim he releases will be back to the same sizing as the FW13 denim from SLP as they were my favourite and I wish I'dd picked up more

    Overall though pretty happy with everything in the collection, it was pretty much what I expected.

    I strongly disagree. I think Hedi looks great in them, even with the blue denim.

    Good article in the FT on how LVMH's goal of doubling Celine's revenues with Hedi may be difficult because a) SLP is still occupying a similar space, b) has Hedi's relevance faded post me-too, and c) I forget.

    https://www.ft.com/content/a2c123b6-c44f-11e8-bc21-54264d1c4647

    The show is growing on me. My immediate reaction was about as expected, then I went to I surprisingly prefer what Anthony has been doing at SLP more, and finally, now with these detail shots I'm beginning to see how Celine can fit into the picture.

    The article does raise a good question about why not his own brand? Is it just another quick 2-4 years of increasing revenue? That sounds fine in this environment, but is Hedi's aesthetic too thin for sa propre maison?

    I think Hedi’s legs are too large to proportionally match these heels.

    He doesn’t want his name associated with something not created by him. Eventually someone else will be designing Hedi Slimane. Also starting up a brand from scratch is probably too much of a hassle.

    Haven't bought anything SLP in a while. Won't be buying any of this probably.

    Just got back but it was a great show and while the talk In the crowd was very mixed, most people couldn’t help but see a few pieces they’d buy for themselves.

    Personally, I loved it. Hedi has matured and reverted back to his early days all at once and it’s refreshing to see him have another go at the new wave thing. What’s great about this collection is it doesn’t look like it’ll be dated after a season, I said the same about the first collection at SL so we’ll see what happens next. I don’t think Celine will go too crazy with the style and brandinglike everything ended up at SL though and also most if not all the showroom pieces were made in France so I don’t think it will have a huge run, in fact I doubt there will be much available clothing to buy off the rack / rtw aside from tee shirts, shirting, belts, boots etc

    This is going to be Hedi’s Chanel for sure

    I only notice superficial differences between Saint Laurent and Celine right now, what do you feel about critics saying that it is just Saint Laurent over again? What do you mean by Hedi matured?
