LVMH, the world's largest luxury-goods company, has named Hedi Slimane as Artistic, Creative and Image Director of Céline with effect from February this year. He will direct all Céline collections, extending to men’s fashion, couture and fragrances. Slimane wit his talent will ensure a further era of exceptional growth and development for this famous Maison.

Hedi Slimane has remarkable ability to anticipate and express in a unique way the evolutions and desires of his age, according to LVMH

Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive officer of LVMH, commented: “I am particularly happy that Hedi is back within the LVMH Group and taking the reins of our Céline Maison. He is one of the most talented designers of our time. I have been a great admirer of his work since we collaborated on Dior Homme, which he launched to global critical acclaim in the 2000s. His arrival at Céline reinforces the great ambitions that LVMH has for this Maison. Hedi will oversee and develop all creativity for both women’s and men’s fashion, but also for leather goods, accessories and fragrances. He will leverage his global vision and unique aesthetic virtuosity in further building an iconic French Maison”.

Hedi Slimane said: “I am delighted to join Bernard Arnault in this all-embracing and fascinating mission for Céline. I greatly look forward to returning to the exciting world of fashion and the dynamism of the ateliers”.

Sidney Toledano, chairman and chief executive officer of the LVMH Fashion Group, added: “Hedi Slimane is an exceptional designer, complete artist and passionate about his work. I am certain that he will bring his renowned creative energy and discipline to lead Céline to ever greater success”. (SV)
