The Story Behind Hedi Slimane’s Wedding Gift to Justin and Hailey Bieber

This week Justin and Hailey Bieber tied the knot (again!) at the Inn at the Montage Palmetto Bluff, located in South Carolina. The event served as the couple’s proper wedding ceremony, even though they officially wed last year via a civil ceremony at New York’s City Hall. Celebrity guests in attendance included Kris, Kendall, and Kylie Jenner; models Joan Smalls and Camila Morrone; singer Justine Skye, Jaden Smith, and many more.

To mark the occasion, Celine’s Hedi Slimane sent the couple a very special wedding gift—and Vogue has been given a closer look at his custom creation. The designer crafted bespoke “Husband” and “Wife” jackets for the newlyweds, embellishing their new titles onto the back of sleek motorcycle jackets (in matching black leathers, of course). The rock-and-roll piece is a signature across all of Slimane’s collections, although this particular outerwear had a more personal touch: “I believe that’s his handwriting, and then they studded it with chrome studs,” said Karla Welch, Justin’s stylist. “They loved it. They wore it at the wedding.”

Slimane’s gift was particularly special to Justin, who is a big fan of the designer’s work, even prior to him being at Celine. “Justin used to wear all of Hedi’s clothes when he was at Saint Laurent,” Welch added. “All our suits were always by Hedi, whenever he’s worn tailoring.” Hailey evidently appreciated the gift too: she was spotted on her big day tearing up the photo booth in the new piece, in a photo posted by her stylist, Maeve Reilly. She also thanked Slimane in her Instagram Story after the wedding, writing, “Thank you so much for these jackets @celine will basically be wearing this for the rest of my life.”

So, while expensive crockery or a useful home appliance may be the typical wedding gift, there’s something about a sentimental garment that fits the Biebers’ fashion-forward aesthetic perfectly. They do have killer couple style, remember?
