Hedi Slimane’s debut collection for Celine caused a furore among fashion fans who labelled it “narcissistic”, “tone-deaf” and a “big f*** you to women.”

Loyal followers of the brand’s previous creative director, Phoebe Philo, were shocked to see that Slimane had replaced his predecessors minimalist aesthetic with his own signature stamp of sexed-up, rock-and-roll-inspired garb.

While some criticised Slimane for replicating looks he created at Saint Laurent, others took issue with the show’s casting which was dominated by thin, white models. In fact, 87 of the 96 models were white, and it was a third of the way through the show before viewers even saw the first model of colour.

At Balenciaga a model closed the show wearing a dress emblazoned with the brand’s logo in Comic Sans

For spring/summer 2019, Balenciaga presented a show centred around technology’s impact on society with an immersive tunnel-style set, ominous soundtrack and clothes covered in Clip Art effects.

But the real showstopper was its closing ensemble which came emblazoned with the Balenciaga logo reimagined in dozens of different Microsoft Word fonts, including Comic Sans – the joke of the typography world.

Once universally loathed, the san serif font of yesteryear is officially en Vogue.


We’ve come to expect a show-stopping catwalk setting from Karl Lagerfeld, and on the final day of Paris Fashion Week, this season was no different.

 While previous years have seen the designer transform the runway into everything from an enchanted forest to a space station, this time Lagerfeld recreated a beach that included an ocean with gentle waves, brilliant blue sky and lifeguards.

As the sound of seagulls signalled the start of the show, models dipped their toes in the sand sporting swimsuits, sun hats and bags shaped like beach balls.
