Skinny denims are formally over – simply ask Travis Scott

In the meantime, simply yesterday Hedi Slimane offered his Spring/Summer time 2022 assortment for Celine, which noticed him bid adieu to skinny denims and introduce a billowing, floor-skimming silhouette to the home. It was a stunning flip, notably contemplating that the designer has lengthy been a proponent of spray-ons and arguably kick-started the 2000s love affair with them when he first served them at Dior for Winter 2005.
