Summer Spirit in St. Tropez

The Plein Soleil capsule by Hedi Slimane for CELINE.

As the latest part of the Baie des Anges collection, the brand-new Plein Soleil capsule by CELINE blesses us with a glimmer of St. Tropez spirit for the summer months ahead. The assortment of ready-to-wear items and accessories will be available in selected CELINE stores from April 29th, 2022.

The collection channels the famed understated elegance that both CELINE and the South of France are known for. With pastel tones and floral patterns present throughout, the capsule transports us to a sun-kissed coastline, with striped beach towels and swimwear as accompaniments. The beach-chic feel of the collection is complemented with a craftwork twist, as handknitted crochet dresses and tops are included. To top off the seaside experience, the capsule offers special CELINE editions of the beloved beach games Pétanque and Finnish Keels and even includes a hammock.

As the sun sets over the Mediterranean, the CELINE woman slips out of her beachwear and into a luxurious evening collection. Crafted with the fine materials of jacquard and lamé printed silk, the capsule offers a Bain de Soleil dress, a lingerie top and more for those unforgettable St. Tropez summer nights.

The silhouette also enjoys a plethora of bags, including the house’s classic Panier in various colourways, as well as the Cabas Thais and a calfskin picnic basket. Canvas sneakers, gladiator sandals and acetate sunglasses complete the collection. Modelled by CELINE brand ambassador Suzanne Lindon, the Plein Soleil capsule is the latest in a long line of successes, crafted with the personal touch of Hedi Slimane, the brand’s enigmatic creative director. Available in selected stores from April 29th, CELINE offers you a chance to dress à la mode with this quintessentially French collection – allons à la plage!
