January 2013: Fall 2013 Menswear collection released “The kindest thing to be said about Slimane's first official men's collection was that he made a guy to go with his girl. ” – This was just as much about the plaid shirts, distressed jeans, drainpipe leathers, trailing leopard-print scarves, vintage coats and cavalry jackets… a rock prototype… all of it is thrilling in theory and practice, but it was a surreal incongruity to see it spot-lit in a very expensive fashion presentation… Slimane's passion for the music he loves, the bands that make that music, and the lifestyle that surrounds it is entirely understandable, laudable… [but] he spun his ardor into high fashion today, it made a lot less sense, especially as the kids who are the prime components of his vision can already shop this look for zilch down the funky end of any L.A. boulevard.
