In the March, 2011 issue of W magazine, Karin Nelson wrote, “As creative director of Dior Homme from 2000 to 2007, Hedi Slimane pioneered a lean, mean, louche aesthetic that revolutionized men’s fashion (…) Much like his designs, his photos-which range from action stills of kids at rock concerts to close-ups of his Rolls-Royces-reveal an entirely original vision.”
