Cult Figure – Hedi Silmane
A French man living in LA… Hedi Silmane has just taken on the reins as artistic, creative & image director at the house of Celine as of February 2018 …. Some say an unusual choice.. But for me a perfect decision … This man’s clothes are so wearable & relevant … Completely non-faddy, if there is such a thing in fashion … !! The Financial Times named him as the sharpest designer in January 2018..
Slimane has also produced some iconic black & white photography, each picture sort of takes on a film like quality of its own and the drama in each and every shot is stunning… You know I like a bit of drama .. !
Slimane was one of the main reason that Karl Largerfeld decided to lose weight … Because he wanted to get into Hedi Slimane clothes… What better reason !!
What is interesting in the 2006 Vogue images is that despite the fact that they were taken twelve years ago they still work today …. Now that is style!!
