Setting the tone for the new fall/winter 2021 men’s collection for Celine—titled Teen Knight PoemHedi Slimane‘s virtual show began with a flag-bearing cavalier charging toward the Château de Chambord, an architectural masterpiece of the French Renaissance.

Young male models stormed to the marching drums of The Loom on epic rooftops, clad in armour-like ensembles with a touch of Nouveau Romantique—think: leather and puffer jackets worn over frilled tops; oversized sweaters alongside studded knit ski masks; and sharp suiting paired with delicate silver jewellery.
