Return of the Supes

For the new spring/summer issue of Vogue Hommes International, Hedi Slimane shot a portfolio of 90s-era super(male)models including Mark Vanderloo, Werner Schreyer and Larry Scott, he of sizzling Acqua Di Gio and Giorgio Armani ads. Still hot...

Your First Look: Prada Men's

This is the new spring campaign for Prada menswear, photographed by Hedi Slimane. The first-time models (and still schoolboys) are the Simonon brothers, Louis and Claude. Who are they? The sons and heirs of Paul and Tricia Simonon, the bass player and manager of The Clash, respectively. How's that for rock royalty? Or is it punk prodigy? The resemblance to dad, the hottie of the group, is uncanny. But back to Hedi and Prada, if we were the speculating kind, we might say this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship in menswear...

Your First Look: Vogue Hommes Japan

Daryoush Haj-Najafi...

As a special treat for Hintsters, here's a sneak preview of the forthcoming debut issue of Vogue Hommes Japan. This samurai-inspired cover shot was taken by Hedi Slimane, with fashion direction by Nicola Formichetti, who sent us these photos. You've seen a lot of Nicola's work. He first appeared in Dazed & Confused as a model in 1999, but his early signature style of mixing sportswear with the cartoony, the graphic and the slightly kitsch on smiling twinks came to be the Alpha aesthetic of millennial menswear, a counterpoint to the Hedi's and Raf's darker Omega.

These days, Nicola is more in demand than ever and his list of titles—Dazed & Confused creative director, Another Man senior fashion editor, Vogue Hommes Japan fashion director and so on—reads like a particularly fierce drag ball competitor entering the editorial realness heat. He also consults for Uniqlo, Prada, McQ, D&G, Kim Jones, Gareth Pugh, Levi's and Romain Kremer—phew, you could break into a sweat just thinking about it.

Hedi Slimane's Rock Diary

If you're in New York this Friday, tattoo this in your Rock Diary...


Wednesday, May 7, 2008

This just in from Hedi Slimane. Hot on the (Converse) heels of his Musac exhibit—see Hint Blog from April 11—comes a new tome, Rock Diary. The book features contributions from legendary music scribe Vince Aletti (the first person to write about a 70's subculture called Disco), Alex Needham (the writing partner in Hedi's Rock Diary submissions to V) and Jon Savage, author of England's Dreaming, the seminal history of Punk and the Sex Pistols in a broader, socio-political context. Much like Hedi's documentation of music and youth today...

May 17. Save the date. That's when Hedi Slimane's new photo exhibit at Musac Museum of Contemporary Art in Leon, Spain, will open. Expect his trademark mix of aesthetic purism and rock-and-roll euphoria, while documenting today's sweaty youth. (In the meantime, check out our exclusive Q&A with Hedi, from the opening of his Perfect Stranger show in Paris last November.)
