For over twenty years Hedi Slimane has rocked the fashion world, bringing his obsession with music culture and pop icons into a new wave of designs that crossed gender lines, redefined the waste and placed shoulder pads back on top.

Hedi Slimane is a creature entirely unto himself; a force majeure of fashion whose fascination with rock and roll iconography permanently shifted menswear and with it, the cultural perception of what an ideal man could be.

Like the rock gods of old he so idolised – who could come to idolise him in return – capitulation is simply not a part of his build. It is, and has always been, Hedi’s way; or the highway.
