I believe its typical Hedi Slimane behavior-booking the ”it” model of the season while being connected to a drug issue,same process of thinking when he put Courtney Love or Marilyn Manson to model for his SAINT LAURENT overall music project,even though the aesthetics are different..Cara Delevingne will be headlining the Fall 2013 campaign,s shot in California and Slimane manages even to ”include” the whole drug subculture aesthetics in the series for photographs he took for SAINT LAURENT Fall 2013 campaign, With his previous SAINT LAURENT collection being slightly unpopular,he knows he needs a great boost to establish his place in a House so renowned and celebrate as Dior is.
I have always considered Hedi Slimane a person with a unique style,something that became clear from his ”DIARY” and a great photographer.The thing is, i never thought of him as a designer and that what’s Dior needs right now.And i don’t, so far, see any..
