Famed for making suits look cool again with his skinny iteration at Dior, French-Tunisian designer Hedi Slimane has been responsible for pushing underground subcultures to the forefront of high fashion. If you imagine a young Brigitte Bardot and Courtney Love coming together into one person (the perfect mix of gamine innocence and rock rebellion) then that’s his imaginary muse in a nutshell.
Ever wandered where the designer gets all his inspiration? Well you might find the answer by watching one of his favourite films.
From cult French New Wave movies to Xavier Dolan’s classic Laurence Anyways and Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, Celine’s creative director curated a list of his best lockdown films for the streaming platform Mubi. And the good news is that they’re available to watch for free until May 31st.
