A surrealist trapped in reality, a painter on a quest to find his inspiration, and an ever current
Following its first fashion film, “Anamnesis”, the men’s brand Dánte makes a comeback with
“Lobster”, a film praising introspection and the constant, very personal, search for one’s true self.
Inspiration is found in Salvador Dali, one of the most eccentric and controversial personalities of
contemporary art and surrealism.
After Nikos Psarras, the torch is passed to Stavros Svigkos, the talented actor who portrays a
contemporary version of Dali, trying to find his lobster, the inspiration he needs to express his very
own truth without limitations or restraints.
Inspirer of the idea and founder of the brand, Antonis Papastavrou, places the Spanish painter’s
moustache-symbol, which in itself was a statement against the stereotypes of the hyperrealists of
Dali’s time, in the skilled hands of Kontstantinos Dekoumés who magnificently brings to life the
artistic and personal impasse in which the artist found himself, as well as the symbolic association it
had with the inspiration for his famous painting, the lobster..

n his debut show for Celine – now sans accent – in September, Hedi Slimane made it more than clear what his intentions are for the house. If anyone thought that some of the reactions to that show would have an effect on his vision, his first men’s show for Celine spelled out a big fat – or indeed very, very skinny – no. In fashion, as in life, there are certain forces that will make themselves heard. Slimane is one of them. He believes in his own vision to its utmost core: from the mechanical light installation that fanfares every show (this time it was a huge geometric ball) to the stick thin models that walk his runway (a new one turns 18 every minute), to the emerging rock bands that score his collections (the irreverently named Crack Cloud), and the vintage-inspired aesthetic that embodies his garments. No matter how deep you search, the ultimate proposal of any of his collections – and indeed the one he showed on Sunday night – is in essence the brand of Hedi Slimane.
Seasonal collections, however, are put in the world to propose something new for the immediate future. So how do you, as an observer of such collections, approach the work of a designer, who believes so strongly in a consistent point of view? You could read into Sunday evening’s Celine collection and say that it proposed a more cropped and roomier tailored trouser, or that its suiting evoked the tie-wearing Patrick Bateman yuppie dad tailoring of 1980s’ Valentino; only cut for a much, much skinnier frame. You could talk about the glitter and sequinned pieces, which were no doubt of a notable artisanal value. Or you could point out the obvious nostalgia – or was it wistfulness – that existed within the collection for the mid-2000s when indie music culture was at its high and everyone looked like the boys, who walked the 2019 Celine runway. What has to be stated – for the sake of the history books – is that Celine menswear, which didn’t exist under Slimane’s predecessor Phoebe Philo, was brought into the world looking like this.

Dries Van Noten has presented a selection of voices that accompanied his AW 2019/2020 collection—an aural backdrop of snatches of conversations and interviews with the men Van Noten admires. There was David Bowie, of course: his pleated pants, a flavor of his ’80s persona. There was David Hockney, talking about getting up mid-morning in California, and going out to see what’s around to paint.
There was a burst of Jimi Hendrix—cue a riff on tie-dye. Kurt Cobain, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon, Yves Saint Laurent, David Byrne. And in the middle of it, there was the mordant voice of an Englishman, nailing the state of affairs today. “I think the whole of our society is run by insane people for insane objects," he said. Turned out to be John Lennon, in the ’60s.
Hedi Slimane will present his first collection dedicated exclusively to menswear for Celine during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris in January 2019.
On September 28, 2018, Hedi Slimane presented his first collection as creative director for Celine at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019. The September show saw Slimane introduce masculine silhouettes for the first time, in a show that featured models of every gender. The menswear pieces had a rock edge, an aesthetic borrowed from the Parisian nightlife scene (which served as inspiration for the show). Now, the fashion world is awaiting Slimane’s first collection exclusively dedicated to menswear for Celine, which will debut in January 2019 at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
