Throughout the pandemic, the French luxury brand Celine has been more than creative with their fashion show presentations. From incorporating TikTok stars in “The Dancing Kid” to filming at a running track in Monaco, the fashion house is no stranger to finding fun and innovative ways of displaying its latest designs. Recently, Celine has released a short film debuting their new menswear Winter 21-22 collection. Styled and co-produced by Celine’s creative director Hedi Slimane, “Teen Knight Poem” is a thirteen-minute fashion film that takes place at a grandiose castle at The Château de Chambord. Socially-distanced models dressed in all-black and embroidered in silver jewels make their way throughout the tower as “Time Slip” by The Loom ominously plays in the background. The film is a nod to classic 16th-century court culture with a Parisian couture twist. Game of Thrones meets gothic aesthetics with models sporting embroidered gemstones with leather bomber jackets. Check out the film and all the looks below.
