In Monaco, Celine is cooler, younger and more American than she ever was.

In 2021, Celine’s woman listens to Princess Nokia and pairs blazers with baseball caps, tweed jackets with running shorts and glitter dresses with chunky boots.

Hedi Slimane staged the Celine Spring Summer 2021 women’s collection on the racing track of Monaco’s Louis II stadium. The show, unveiled on October 26, was pre-recorded on October 8th.
