Hedi Slimane became famous around the turn of the 21st century, mainly as the genius menswear designer of the world  primarily at Dior, where Parisian fashion sensibilities first embraced the skinny hipster look that is in all its essentials still with us.

Slimane left Dior in 2007 and has not so far returned to fashion design. He lives in L.A. now, where he took most of these black-and-white photographs.

The pictures always look like summer. That is a consistent feature.
