PARIS, France — Hedi Slimane is set to join Céline, starting February 1. The designer will take on the title of artistic, creative and image director and expand the LVMH-owned label’s offering into menswear, couture and fragrance. He will show his first collection for the brand in September during Paris Fashion Week.

“I am particularly happy that Hedi is back within the LVMH Group and taking the reins of our Céline maison,” said LVMH chairman and cheif executive Bernard Arnault in a statement. “He is one of the most talented designers of our time. I have been a great admirer of his work since we collaborated on Dior Homme, which he launched to global critical acclaim in the 2000s. His arrival at Céline reinforces the great ambitions that LVMH has for this maison.”

“I am delighted to join Bernard Arnault in this all-embracing and fascinating mission for Céline,” said Slimane. “I greatly look forward to returning to the exciting world of fashion and the dynamism of the ateliers.”
