A continuation of the '70s bourgeois French girl look he presented last season, Celine Artistic Director Hedi Slimane doubled down on practical daywear, easy separates and no-fuss blouses and scarf dresses for Spring 2020. There's also a bigger emphasis on washed bootcut denim, which isn't particularly groundbreaking but acts as a nod to the brand's '70s roots. The casual mood of the collection (plain white sneakers, aviator sunnies) show Slimane's mastery of merchandising and category dressing, a skill that he implemented at Saint Laurent with much success. Here's everything else you need to know about the collection.

The classic bootcut jean in a medium wash was heavily used throughout, worn with platform heels or tucked inside boots.
If it wasn't a jean, it was a full denim A-line skirt in patchwork construction that reached below the knee.
Printed head scarves were wrapped as a turban in a variety of looks, which added to the early '70s mood of the collection.
The main silhouette for Celine this season is a printed midi dress with a pair of knee-high leather boots.
Slimane did add in some sultry eveningwear looks toward the finale, including dresses with gold embroidery and lace detailing for those late Parisian nights.
