This week, we've been given a sneak peek at Hedi Slimane's newest collection for Céline by the way of Lady Gaga, who carried the designer's newest handbag around Paris, even making a stop at the Louvre.

Gaga took to Instagram to share the bag as well, but this is not the first time the pop singer has debuted a piece from the mind of Hedi Slimane. In 2012, Gaga wore the designer's first collection for Saint Laurent before it reached the runway as well. 

Gaga's stylist, Tom Eerebout told Business of Fashion that the relationship between the pop star and the designer goes way back. 

"Lady Gaga always supported Hedi at Saint Laurent," said Eerebout "They're really close friends and they have been since he photographed her for The Fame Monster album cover."

This sophisticated, patent leather bag is just the first taste of what is to come from Slimane's collection for Céline, which will be showcased at Paris Fashion Week on September 28.
