Hedi Slimane Gives His First Celine Interview

Hedi Slimane rarely gives interviews so when he does, it makes headlines. Ahead of his Celine debut on Friday, Le Figaro and later the Business of Fashion have published his first interview since his appointment at the French house. In it, he discusses his return to fashion, taking on Phoebe Philo’s mantle, his childhood and his obsession with youth culture. He additionally reveals that he suffers from severe chronic tinnitus, describing a “a very dark period, with phases of anxiety that were difficult to bear.” Head here to read the full interview.
