LISA x CELINE “14 Women Winter 22”
Celine ambassador and K-pop star Lisa put her modeling skills on display in Paris when the Blackpink singer walked in Celine’s winter 2022 runway show, appropriately titled “Dans Paris.” Footage of the show was released today. Lisa wore two looks: a silver sequin mini dress and a black jacket and skirt, which you can see below. She appears at the 4:35 mark and 8:48 mark.
The runway show marked a major moment in the French city, as it took place in not one, but two historic French buildings: the Hôtel de la Marine, in the newly-restored salons d’apparat, and the Hôtel National des Invalides. In the case of the former, it is the first time a runway show and fashion campaign have taken place in the 18th century building since its restoration.
House creative director Hedi Slimane directed, cast, styled, provided the set design, and co-produced the soundtrack for the show, which also featured Kaia Gerber. As for the clothes, the 63 looks in the collection were anchored predominantly in cashmere and leather, with turtlenecks, trousers, and drapey dresses made in Celine’s atelier. In terms of accessories, the Matelassé Monochrome bag made its triumphant debut, along with the new Verneuil boot, featuring a razor-sharp heel and paired with oversized jeans.
For Dans Paris, Slimane unveiled a brand-new architectural pavilion structure, harking back to his inaugural Celine show in 2018, where he did the same on the grounds of Hôtel National Des Invalides.
Lisa spoke to Harper’s Bazaar in September 2021 about her working relationship with Celine. “Celine is never afraid to reinvent itself,” she said. “That facet of the brand is very much in line with my personality. Sometimes it feels like Celine pieces boost my charisma and my confidence. They make me feel empowered. I think that’s why Celine and I have such great synergy.”
She praised Slimane’s hands-on involvement in not just designing the clothes, but also shooting campaigns. “Hedi designs, of course, but he also shoots everything himself,” she said. “He’s so active as an all-around artistic director, and he has unparalleled instincts. He is constantly inspiring me in new ways. I always look forward to our shoots, and it’s truly an honor to feel like I’m part of Celine’s history under his leadership.”
