Double Act

Designer Hedi Slimane may have been appointed to fill Stefano Pilati's shoes as the new creative director at Yves Saint Laurent earlier this month, however it's Slimane's recent photographic work that has my full attention. Slimane creates pure magic with two of modelling's stand out faces Fei Fei Sun and Liu Wen for the March 2012 edition of Chinese Vogue. Slimane captures the sensual and quietly imposing beauty of Sun and Wen for the exquisite portfolio of black and white images. China's two brightest modelling exports look serenely beautiful as Slimane plays with the contrast between the model's porcelain perfect skin and the black and shimmering silver ensembles selected by stylist Mika Mizutani. Slimane has been steadily building his profile as a photographer with a spate of recent editorial features for i-D, Dazed & Confused, V Magazine, and the French, Russian, Japanese and Chinese editions of Vogue. It's early days yet but this editorial gets my vote for one of the most visually captivating editorials for 2012.
