Hedi Slimane and Dazed Japan
first discussed throwing a party in Tokyo in January 2008. What Hedi
wanted to was simply have fun with some fashionable Japanese kids and
also to express his gratitude to everyone in Japan who has supported
his work over the years. The party finally happened on July 14,
organised in conjunction with his recent photography book Rock Diary.
Hedi himself DJed, playing bands like the Libertines, Razorlight, Eight
Legs, Klaxons, Cazals and These New Puritans - all the wild bunches
with whom Hedi worked closely. However, the party was not just about
music, but also involved an interactive photo shoot session. You can
see the pictures taken at the party on his website.
