Joan Didion stars in new Céline campaign

Fashion & Leather Goods


Faithful to the chic and minimalist spirit of the House, Céline and its Creative Director Phoebe Philo chose legendary American author Joan Didion to be the face of its Spring/Summer 2015 campaign.

In a portrait shot by Juergen Teller, Joan Didion wears a basic black dress and a pair of oversize sunglasses, embodying the Céline spirit for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. The collection features myriad references to the 60s and 70s, when Joan Didion published her first novels and became an icon of American literature. Her work is characterized by a sober, radical and minimalist style, reinventing the codes of contemporary writing, just as the rigor and simplicity of Phoebe Philo’s creations revolutionized Céline’s identity.

She is joined in the campaign by choreographer and dancer Marie-Agnès Gillot, expressing the lightness of a collection where floral prints are joined by airy and fluid kimono-style suits. Céline once again affirms an iconoclastic style rich in meaning and assurance.
