CELINE has major Paris syndrome for its Homme Winter 2023 collection.
The cult-followed house just released its latest collection, a collaboration with Proto-Punk artist Alan Vega that’s inspired by the resurgence in popularity of the Electro Clash and Electronic Rock scenes amongst young people.
Titled “Paris Syndrome,” the collaborative collection pulls on the aesthetics of the recently re-popularised trend, culminating in a series of sleeveless tees, knitted jumpers, and oversized hoodies each emblazoned with a newspaper cutout style print spelling out lyrics from a Proto-Punk band of the late 20th century – notably, the one founded and fronted by Alan Vega himself.
Alan Vega, who both inspired and helped to create CELINE’s collection, drew from a myriad of sources, using text and lyrics to inform his art. This sentiment carries through to the collection, which features his own artwork printed on the monochromatic knits, tanks and hoodies.
The collection is decorated with words from the artwork series “Ransom Notes” created by Alan Vega in 1974. Text is jumbled in incoherent but also paints a clear picture of the Proto-Punk aesthetic’s rebelliousness, emboldening words like “EVERYTHING”, “DEADLY”, and “AWAKE”.
Whether you’re one of the newly claimed Proto-Punk fans on the Electronic Rock scene, a long-time fan with a penchant for ‘Girls’ by Suicide, or you just like the aesthetic, CELINE’s Homme Winter 2023 collection is calling you.
