Upon arriving at CELINE in 2018, Hedi Slimane left California where he lived for 10 years and settled in Ramatuelle, in the gulf of Saint-Tropez.
For the past 5 years, the couturier has explored Saint-Tropez and a more general nostalgia for the French Riviera as a parallel to the Saint-Germain-des-Près codes of CELINE.
The small summer beach convertible car, originally designed for the military, first appeared in 1964 and quickly became a symbol of freedom and pleasure in many seaside towns, especially in Saint-Tropez.
For this special project, the car has been customized with a Triomphe wooden steering wheel, a Triomphe canvas hood and dashboard featuring tan leather elements, wicker seats and spare wheel protection. A golden Triomphe signature appears on the wheels and gear shift.
