Everybody stays still in front of a Rolls Royce, even if he is called Hedi Slimane! It seems that the admired photographer and former Dior Homme creative director has had a love at first sight affair with Rolls Royce charm since he was a little kid. What started with the form of various early age sketches ended up recently to some very inspiring photos that managed to capture all the sleeky beauty that a car could wish for.

Once more Slimane proves to know how to portray true luxury in the most original way. He didn’t even have to try hard to look for his models this time since he owns some spectacular  “triple black” Rolls Royce cars. Stripped down to the essential, all the hidden Rolls Royce details obtain in Slimane’s photos an almost hypnotic value.  And as if that unexpected encounter was not enough to celebrate, the digital version of renowned magazine Dazed & Confused invited Beck to record the car engine for a Dazed Digital exclusive. Double pleasure then for the Rolls Royce lovers that through image and sound can get as close as it gets to an original Rolls Royce experience!

    Hedi Slimane take great pictures of these cars: as if they were pure design objects, not vehicles or social status symbols (they are both!) Perhaps this is a premonition that cars will disappear & end up in design museums? Thanks a lot for sharing. http://davidikus.blogspot.com/
