If it is different from the previous F-system projects, I won't differ much from it judging on the pictures.. And Hedi Slimane will not become a household name in the near future. He has been offered to become so but he refused to, at this moment he is very busy with his photography and musical interests, especially with the eye on perfect stranger that has been launched in Paris this week, with the biggest party Hedi has thrown in a long while. I will go down there around christmas (I live in Holland), and I'm very excited right now.. However I do not agree with the people who claim that Hedi can work for any brandname. Sure, literraly he can, but not every brand would suit him, nor give him the freedom he needs. Not to offend anyone in this thread, but I think gucci its style differs a lot from what he did at Dior, and since he would not be setting up a name like he did with Dior Homme, but just take things over from the than former designer (Tom Ford I believe), he just can't swap things around too much. As well as, there is a whole different culture around Gucci, essentialy there is a huge gap between French and Italian Couture, and I'm not quite sure if Italian fashion would suit Hedi...
I wouldn't like to see him work for Gucci anyway, I think Gucci has produced quite poor mens fashion over the past years.. And all foreigners overhere are wearing Gucci footwear to look succesful. Overhere, Gucci has really become a clear example of an expensive brand that people with too much money and too little sense of fashion buy..

Tom Ford left Gucci in 2004. But I disagree with what your saying. As creative director of any brand you make the brand in your vision. I mean, look at Tom Ford, he turned Gucci around and made it what it is today. Gucci was near bankrupt before he came around. Wherever Hedi goes, he will do what he always does, and move any house into any look and direction he sees fit.

i heard he signed with gucci. anyone got more info on this?


That would be terrible, I still have the Tom Ford lenses on when I look at Gucci. Slimane and Gucci would not work.

Hedi and LVMH are in contract talks about the possibility of giving him his own fashion house, but nothing is certain. He stated that he hopes to get back into fashion in 2008, but for it not to totally consume him like at Dior.
