Hedi Slimane & a lot of Perfect Strangers


Former Dior Homme maestro Hedi Slimane unveiled his new artistic venture this evening at Galerie Almine Rech in the Marais. The exhibition is called Perfect Strangers and showcases black and white photographs and light design by the famed couturier. Inspiration for the works came from a summer vacation to Spain, where he visited a rock festival called Benicassim.  Most of the photos are giant-scale images that follow the rock&roll motif– and one wall is covered in part of the concert’s stage.

The fashion industry herd flocked in around 7pm, and flashbulbs popped faster that champagne corks (actually, where was the champagne?!) when Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld, strolled in to view the work. Incredibly chic and clad in what looked like a golden brace/suspender belt, she cut the most elegant silhouette of the evening.

Hedi’s work is on display until January 5th.

Tue-Sat, 11am-7pm.

Galerie Almine Rech, 19 rue de Saintonge,

3rd. M°St-Sébastien-Froissart.

    OOoh I’m glad you went! I want all the details! I decided to stay at home and give myself a mud mask! It’s all about priorities, right? ;-)
