• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Didn't someone post a few pages ago that they're doing a runway show at the end of the month?

Yes my friend, next friday at 20:30. I honestly don't buy the fact that they didn't do a mens show because of money; LVMH makes more than ever. I think it is because SS20 mens and women are identical, so hopefully AW20/21 will be the same, and then it just makes more sense to only do one show.

That'd be great to see. I have been sensing a little more energy on this thread. I've made my first Celine purchases two years in now. Maybe more of a lag compared to SLP, but the chic Parisian bourgeois look is growing on me. Just wish there weren't so many bell-bottoms. ha

You're not tempted by the blazers or suits? I really wish people posted more fits in here.

I'm well suited out, with about 7 from Dior, and about 5-6 blazers from Saint Laurent. I might be that demographic that's a bit Hedi'd out in terms of the large purchases. Plus, Celine suiting and blazers, especially, are cut longer than DH or SLP, which is not good for me at 5'6". Dior has the "court" cut, which is shorter and proportionally so perfect for me and I'm assuming the East-Asian customers.

@X66666 : Do you know how many of each garnment is made ? Stocks seem always low everywhere. Is that a marketing strategy ?

Stocks seem extremely low as you say

only ordered a few items, and my size is not uncommon. However they have to typically order from a different store and state that’s the last of its size at the moment within the US

@Louis Louis Alot of the quantity goes to flagship stores instead of regular boutiques. This is honestly because the majority of the sales for RTW are usually in massive stores like in Japan and HK as suppose to the US.

@GG Allin The good "shit" usually goes to the top-performing stores in the most profitable regions and will rarely appear is normal Celine boutiques, due to the mere fact that they're more likely to sell. If you live in the US, Goodluck!

The Celine boutique here locally is still just selling handbags LOL.

I seriously think that Hedi should have his own brand and take control of everything.
Why always be the man behind a brand.

Oh yeah, I remember you saying that before now. That sounds like an amazing collection by the way. Have you purchased or tried on double-breasted blazers or suit jackets before? The only one from Celine that I like at the moment is one of those, and I'm frankly not sure I could pull it off.

Yeah, I'm in the United States and, worse still, totally reliant on the webstore. I'm kinda bummed because the tailoring from the runway show I really liked is not showing up on the websites, and I'm assuming based on what you wrote that it's just not going to.

Also, I wonder if the policy of not allowing online retailers to stock menswear to maintain an air of exclusivity backfired, with demand being less than expected.
This is what I've been thinking as well, non-established, expensive brand and artificial scarcity.

Definitely similar experience here in the States low stock in XS/44 even in New York! I think they had two dress shirts in 37 last time I was there, which I found shocking (Dior for instance will have too many to try on). Maybe I was asking for a skinny cut, I don't recall. Paris did have more, IIRC.

GG Allin - I never ventured into the double-breasted suit arena. I know it's popular now, but I like to wear my suits unbuttoned a lot for the Tom-Ford look, ha (I think he said a suit always looks better unbuttoned), and I feel as though there'd be too much fabric. They usually are cut long with peak lapels so not exactly my style. I'm still into slightly slimmer, not skinny, lapels, a very tapered body, high arm holes, very tight arms with a slight flair at the sleeves, short jacket, very skinny legs with a low rise. I'm extremely anal about suiting. If it's not fully canvassed I don't bother.

Stock for majority of RTW and the hyped pieces like the snakeskin boots and all forth all depend on the performance of the store. It’s a harsh reality but at the end of the day it’s a business, they’re in it for the money. So I feel very bad for a lot of people who adore the collection but cant even try on every piece. Even if you asked for something to be transferred from another store or another region you are asked to pay a full deposit for the item.

With Celine, you have to try the items instore since the sizing is all over the place. Shirts are much slimmer than SLP ones and coat/jacket sizing is all over the place
