Celine Vipiana was not even thirty years old when she labelled her eponymous brand with her given name. Celine came to stand for the idea of Parisian chic, with savoir-faire and the finest quality materials as pillars of the house. Today, that same spirit is reinforced by artistic director Hedi Slimane through the ateliers at 16 rue Vivienne. The eyewear holds true to that approach with bold yet timeless shapes, dark colourways and unexpected proportions.
The History Of The Brand
French luxury fashion house Celine was founded by Celine Vipiana in 1945. The brand was originally selling bespoke children’s shoes and only added womenswear, fragrance, leather handbags and watches a few years later.
American fashion designer, Michael Kors became the creative director of the brand in 1997 and changed the image of Celine completely. The brand grew to be one of the most prestigious designer labels in the world. In the late 1990s Céline became part of the LVMH group alongside major brands Dior, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Fendi.
The Celine Look
The brand is famous for its trapeze shape leather handbags, which is a design created by the current creative director of the brand, Phoebe Philo. The Celine look is bold, seductive and wearable. The colours are usually very discreet and plain. The brand has many celebrity fans, including the Kardashians, Jennifer Garner and Cameron Diaz.
The Eyewear Collection
Celine eyewear is elegant and modern, with designs that suit every face shape. The collection features oversized acetate frames with minimized logos and rounded edges in smooth pastel and earth colours. The brand’s men's sunglasses collection is minimalistic and elegant, featuring models that suit everyday outfits and occasion wear.
