Early in 2022, Celine creative director Hedi Slimane revealed a somewhat unexpected new muse – his beloved canine companion, Elvis. 

The shaggy-haired dog – named after Elvis Presley, a longtime fascination of Slimane, who photographed Graceland in 2014 – provided the inspiration for, and became the face of, the designer’s first Celine dog accessories and saddlery collection in May 2022.

Crafted with the same attention to quality and savoir-faire as the house’s clothing and accessories – particularly demonstrating its expertise in leather – it comprised Celine-monogram collars and leashes, a clip-on wallet for dog bags and treats, a canvas-clad feeding bowl, and a version of the ‘Voyage’ carry-all emblazoned with ‘dog’ (and, so its feline counterpart didn’t feel left out, another version read ‘cat’).

There was even a black rubber toy in the shape of the house’s historic ‘Triomphe’ monogram – Slimane’s luxurious riff on the traditional ‘chew toy’.

Revealed yesterday (7 December 2023), Elvis returns in a new Slimane-shot campaign, showcasing the designer’s latest dog collection. This time, he’s joined by some royal companions: Police, the dog of HRH Caroline of Hanover, and Eloïse, the pet of HRH Alexandra of Hanover. Befitting the subjects, the campaign was photographed in Monaco.

This time, objects include a dog carrier in Celine-monogram canvas with lambskin trim, an array of dog collars and leads, an animal-print version of the canvas feeding bowl, a sheepskin toy, a sequined treat bag, a brush, and a rattan basket designed to hold your canine companion’s belongings.

And, though ostensibly these are accessories to spoil your dog, such is the beauty of the various objects that they will provide an equally satisfying adornment for owners – and their homes.

The Celine dog and pet collection is available now in Celine stores and at celine.com.
