# Hedi Slimane to Show Men’s Fall 2023 Collection at Legendary Paris Nightclub Le Palace
Are you ready to hit the dance floor? Hedi Slimane is taking us back to the disco era with his men’s fall 2023 collection, which is set to be shown at the legendary Paris nightclub Le Palace. With its Art Deco interior and neon chandeliers, Le Palace has attracted a glittering array of famous fashion designers, headlined by Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld and Kenzo Takada. Read on to find out more about this iconic venue and why it’s the perfect backdrop for Slimane’s latest collection.
## A History of Le Palace
Le Palace is a meaningful place for Slimane, who frequented it starting from age 16. The French designer claims the venue “triggered his future as a couturier,” according to Celine. Often described as the Studio 54 of Paris, Le Palace was originally built in the 17th century as a theatre and dancehall. It was converted to a discotheque in 1978 when it was taken over by nightlife impresario Fabrice Emaer. Emaer conscripted architect Patrick Berger to revamp the Art Deco interior with neon chandeliers.
During the disco era, Le Palace was so popular that it sometimes took revelers one hour to get from the red velvet balconies to the dance floor. It has also attracted a glittering array of famous fashion designers, headlined by Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld and Kenzo Takada, along with the likes of Grace Jones, Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall, Serge Gainsbourg and Prince.
## Hedi Slimane’s Collection
Hedi Slimane’s men’s fall 2023 collection is set to be shown at Le Palace on Friday, almost three weeks after the European men’s shows wound up. Slimane has a penchant for legendary entertainment venues, having staged fashion shows at the Hollywood Palladium and the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.
Celine’s men’s show coincides with New York Fashion Week, whose official dates are Feb. 10 to 15. We can’t wait to see what Slimane has in store for us this season!
