Item description for Hedi Slimane: Stage by Hedi Slimane...

Over the past few years, Hedi Slimane's ongoing design collaborations with musicians on their stage costumes has allowed him unfettered access around the stages of live concerts by David Bowie, The White Stripes, Beck, The Rolling Stones, Blondie, The Strokes, and The Paris, London, Berlin, New York, and Los Angeles. This juncture between fashion and music has evolved into a personal photographic investigation on the mythology of the rock concert. In Slimane's pictures, the stars of the shows are often conspicuously absent; what the images reveal, instead, is a meditation on the creation of a rock personality, the silent ritual that goes on in the space he (or she?) inhabits. His images capture, as Slimane himself puts it, "the sacred--almost sacrificial--space of the stage."

More About Hedi Slimane

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Born in 1968 in Paris to an Italian dressmaker mother and a Tunisian accountant father, Hedi Slimane started making his own clothes at the age of 15, inspired by his mother. After a prestigious preparatory course in literature, followed by classes at the Ecole du Louvre art school, Slimane began his career as an assistant to menswear designer Jose Levy. In 1996, he joined the menswear design team at Yves Saint Laurent; in less than a year he had risen to the position of Artistic Director. With Tom Ford's resurrection of the House of Saint Laurent, he decided his creative freedom was being compromised, and left to take charge of design and image for Christian Dior's men's ready-to-wear and accessories lines.

Hedi Slimane was born in 1958 and died in 1965.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hedi Slimane: Stage?

Unappealing  Nov 3, 2004
An oversized, overpriced, boring compilation of black and white photos from some concerts that Hedi apparently attended. While some of the photography is interesting, I am a photographer and can appreciate them, they were nonetheless boring and unappealing. With no introductory text nor anything written specifically for any photo included, this book falls way short of my expectations... especially disappointing having enjoyed his book Berlin by the same publisher. That said, the quality of printing and production is excellent so if that's all you're going for, add this one to your coffee table. Otherwise PASS.
