o.f.n. but while looking for some pics on google i found this on some gay website [no homo] no mention of the gucci group though!

Apologizing for his English, Slimane first admits to enjoying his time at Dior and, as he says, "living in a movement". Protracted and increasingly frustrating negotiations, however, proved to be too much for the frail-looking fashionista. At the end of his contract last July, he writes, he decided to leave the company.

Executives attempted to dissuade Slimane by offering him his own line, for a price and, of course, his name. Slimane may have been tempted at first, but his integrity won out…

I tried to make things work for about a year. However, I had the feeling it was not the right project for me. There are areas I will not compromise with at all when it comes to my work and setting up a label under my own name. I always kept in mind the precedence of some designers I admire who were in a similar situation, and chose the other path. Perhaps in another time in my life, under other circumstances, my name, and the management of a company under my own label would be considered differently, Right now I feel it is very important to stay true to my principles, and the idea I have of fashion.
The "precedence", it seems, may be a reference to Marc Jacobs, who designs his eponymous label under LVMH's thumb.
The Out-backed Stylelist reports that Kris van Assche will be taking the Dior Homme saddle. Hopefully he'll be able to sustain Slimane's success. Although, it shouldn't be too hard, the Belgian designer previously once worked as the French man's assistant.

As for Slimane: he enjoyed his new-found freedom at the VMan/Calvin Klein party last week - looking as stylish and oh-so-skiddish as usual…


ps i still cant find the pics i want as any one got the campaign pics from this collection?

Found this quote in this article so true:
'An athletic man, or whatever you want to call him, will only look good in a very classic suit, a pair of classic jeans, athletic clothes or simply naked. Forget fashion. This is not going to happen, unless you want to look like a Chippendales dancer in designer clothes.'

most fashion is really for the skinny
