CELINE HOMME "THE DANCING KID"

 

 

 

THE DANCING KID: A TEEN ROMANCE.

 

THE CONCEPT FOR THE DANCING KID TOOK HOLD IN DECEMBER 2019. ATTUNED TO NEW ADOLESCENT CODES, HEDI SLIMANE PHOTOGRAPHED NOEN EUBANKS IN LONDON. IT BECAME THE START OF THE "PORTRAIT OF A TEEN IDOL" SERIES. IN EARLY 2020, THIS COLLECTION WAS BEING PREPARED IN PARALLEL WITH THE WINTER COLLECTION. THE CONFINEMENT CONFIRMED HEDI SLIMANE’S DIRECTION, BUT THE WHOLE OF THE DANCING KID ALREADY HAD COME TOGETHER AND WAS DESIGNED ENTIRELY IN SAINT TROPEZ WELL BEFORE MARCH.

 

MEANWHILE, CONFINED YOUTH STAVED OFF BOREDOM BY DANCING, AFFIRMING THEIR CREATIVE FLAIR, CONVICTIONS AND CULTURE, NOTABLY MUSICAL. IN AMERICA, BILLBOARD AND THE MUSIC INDUSTRY PIVOTED TO A MAJOR NEW INFLUENCE.

 

THE DANCING KID IS A "DOCUMENTARY" COLLECTION SPANNING EBOYS AND CURRENT SKATE CULTURE, A CANDID PORTRAIT OF A GENERATION THAT TOOK ADVANTAGE OF 

THE CONFINEMENT AND ISOLATION TO ASSERT ITSELF AND EMANCIPATE ITSELF CREATIVELY, SPONTANEOUSLY INVENTING AN INITIATORY LANGUAGE ANCHORED IN DANCE AND TEEN ROMANCE.

 

HEDI SLIMANE INVITED SIX ARTISTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE FORM OF THE DANCING KID EDITIONS, IN THE MANNER OF A GROUP SHOW.
