CELINE HOMME unveiled its Winter 2023 show video from the iconic Le Palace, a jewel nestled in the heart of Paris. This extraordinary venue holds profound sentiment for Hedi Slimane, the creative genius behind CELINE HOMME. Le Palace, a cornerstone of Slimane’s formative years starting at just 16, served as a constant source of inspiration.
From Theater to Nightclub: A Transformation Through Time
First erected as a theater dance hall in the 17th century, Le Palace underwent an extraordinary metamorphosis in 1978 under the astute direction of visionary impresario, Fabrice Emaer. It emerged as a legendary nightclub, rapidly becoming the pulsating heart of Parisian nightlife. A magnet for vibrant communities, Le Palace was a stage where people from all walks of life could revel in the thrill of the night.
An Enclave of Esteemed Figures
The nightclub’s intoxicating charm attracted a myriad of esteemed figures such as Yves Saint Laurent, Grace Jones, Prince, Karl Lagerfeld, Andy Warhol, Serge Gainsbourg, Mick Jagger, and Jerry Hall. This cultural hive became a beacon for the glitterati, adding layers to its rich and enticing history.
