I Hate The Hedi Slimane Wyatt Boot?!?!
Hedi Slimane is Taking a Break From Fashion to Pursue Photography Full Time
Since exiting his role as creative director of Saint Laurent in March 2019, Hedi Slimane has kept a relatively low profile.
While industry insiders waited to see which fashion house Slimane would end up at next, he resurfaced this week to make his comeback in an unexpected way: by re-emerging as a photographer. His first post-fashion piece of work? A portfolio forV Magazinetitled "Hedi Slimane's New York Diary."
The portfolio, which is the first of three installments for Slimane's diary series, features artists, musicians and writers making their dreams come true in New York City.
Of course, this is hardly the first time Slimane has stepped behind the lens. The creative director photographed the ad campaigns for Saint Laurent during his four year tenure at the fashion house—lending a fresh look to the iconic brand. Prior to Saint Laurent, Slimane photographed both art and fashion for publications likeFrench Vogue, V Man and Purplealong with running his own photography blog titled, The Hedi Slimane Diary, since 2006.
Slimane spoke out about his new photography endeavor in an interview with theNew York Times, saying, "This is an ongoing project and will focus on strong creative. Besides historical New York artists, I constantly follow and document new generations of musicians, writers, comedians and artists. I am currently doing it in New York, but also in Paris, and, of course, for quite some time in Los Angeles, where I live."
So does this mean Slimane will never return to fashion design? According to his interview, don't count him out just yet, "Naturally, photography will always be there, however I never intended to stop designing. I never said I will stop designing in the future," Slimane said.
