“LA COLLECTION DE L’ARC DE TRIOMPHE” FILM MARKS THE BIRTH OF CELINE BEAUTÉ, THE FIRST COSMETICS LINE IN THE HOUSE’S HISTORY.


CELINE BEAUTÉ WAS CREATED BY HEDI SLIMANE IN 2023. EXPANDING FROM CELINE’S HAUTE PARFUMERIE COLLECTION LAUNCHED IN 2019, MODELS WEAR “LA PEAU NUE” ROSE NATUREL LIPSTICK, ONE OF THE 15 SHADES OF “LE ROUGE CELINE” COLLECTION THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN 2025. THE CELINE BEAUTÉ COLLECTION WILL LAUNCH THIS AUTUMN WITH THE FIRST SATIN LIPSTICK SHADE “ROUGE TRIOMPHE”.


IN 1971 CELINE VIPIANA FINDS HERSELF ON PLACE DE L’ETOILE AFTER HER CAR BROKE DOWN WHEN SHE NOTICED THE CHAIN LINK ENCIRCLING THE ARC DE TRIOMPHE, A DECORATIVE PATTERN THAT WOULD SOON BECOME CELINE’S MONOGRAM. IN 2018, UPON HIS ARRIVAL AT CELINE, HEDI SLIMANE REDESIGNS THIS HISTORICAL EMBLEM WITH A MODERNIST APPROACH AND NAMES IT “TRIOMPHE” – A MOTIF THAT NOW REAPPEARS COLLECTION AFTER COLLECTION.


“LA COLLECTION DE L’ARC DE TRIOMPHE” LOOKS BACK AT THE 60'S, THE GOLDEN AGE OF CELINE, RECAPTURING THE ORIGINS OF THE HOUSE.


UPON ARRIVING AT CELINE IN 2018, HEDI SLIMANE REINTRODUCED A NEW VERSION OF THE HOUSE’S “TRIOMPHE” EMBLEM, APPEARING ON THE TRIOMPHE BAG WHICH HE DESIGNED ON HIS FIRST DAY. THE TRIOMPHE WOULD SOON BECOME THE HOUSE’S NEW CLASSIC BAG, ONE THAT EMBODIES THE VERY ESSENCE AND VALUES OF THE COUTURE HOUSE.


“LA COLLECTION DE L’ARC DE TRIOMPHE” IS PRESENTED IN HISTORICAL ART DECO DÉCORS IN PARIS: LA SALLE PLEYEL, LE MUSÉE BOURDELLE, LE MUSÉE DES ARTS DÉCORATIFS, LA MAISON DE LA CHIMIE.
