Slimane's Teenage London


Former creative designer of Dior, and founder of Dior Homme, Hedi Slimane, recently took to the streets of London in order to find teens that sum up the current generation of London Youth. The process took four days in total, including improvisational shoots designed by Slimane. I feel the photography was beautiful, as was the concept, however for some reason I can not help but feel that the results are quite predictable. Although, that being said, that could be a good thing, being a London dwelling teenager myself. Maybe the shoot aimed to sum up what we already see, living in London?

*EDIT* Anyone else reminded of Milo's character back in the days of Gilmore Girls from the first two shots?

  11. black and white captures so much "character" of the make up of the individual. I don't know though..I was so hoping for a "skins" moment..but I know they are perhaps not of that 'neighborhood'..skins is mmore of the remenants of 'village life' instead while this is..'urban and upscaled'..just an observation. You know, not like anybody I would know.

  12. Maybe it was a bit predictable, but I think it was compelling and truthful enough to keep me interested. I like Slimane's photography.

  13. I like the photos, but I think the models could have been better looking if I'm honest.

  14. That is so old Milo, circa Jess! How I worshiped that show. I was always rooting for Jess+Rory, personally.
    And Dapper Kid, my friend Angel and I were stuck at school til midnight on Friday working on the paper and we passed a lot of time looking through your blog! Yay!
