Hedi Slimane Article from the Observer

Quiet here.

Great interview in The Observer with Hedi Slimane, originally published in September.

'There's so many connotations in muscles and virility, I find it crap. I'm not interested. I'm really interested in how masculinity is in your head. That's what I worked on. And Paul Simenon [of the Clash] and all these heroes had that strength. But it's not something they expressed through their body. I was always more interested in the psychology rather than the science of life. Like power and masculinity. For instance, when I started to do suits, I always really loved tailoring, but I was surprised how it was meaning things that I didn't quite understand - that sense of power and stature. I just wanted it to be a pure piece of almost hedonistic pleasure. For me it was a very normal thing to have. And a whole generation of guys never wore suits. You wore a jacket, if you go to a wedding, you borrow it.'
