Huge crowds gathered to watch the return of French label Celine to Paris Fashion Week Men’s on Sunday (June 26). Yet, the Spring/Summer 2023 runway show had another big highlight.
Blackpink’s Lisa, V of BTS and actor-singer Park Bo-gum made an appearance to the delight of Celine’s guests.
Perhaps it was only apt that the menswear presentation had sort of a music theme. The designs seen on the runway embodied more of an androgynous rock spirit – a la David Bowie.
Hedi Slimane, Celine’s creative, artistic and image director, further upped the drama by sending out his models bare-chested on the runway.
Skin-tight pants, sequin shirts and shades were spotted on the models. With their hands tucked into their pockets, they displayed a very broody, rebellious rocker vibe.
Fans of the three South Korean stars swamped the streets outside the show venue – the Palais De Tokyo, which gave the clothes a competition for attention.
It also proved to be a social media frenzy, with the “likes” coming in fast and furious.
A snap posted up by Park of the trio together at Celine’s show already amassed close to 400,000 “likes” – and that was just within three hours or so.
Lisa is currently Celine’s global ambassador. She was appointed to the role in 2020, a year after Slimane named her as his muse.
V, on the other hand, has been flooding his Instagram account with clips and pictures of his adventures in Paris in recent days. This is the first time that he has attended Paris Fashion Week.
