For the cover shoot of the January DAZED & CONFUSED issue, Hedi Slimane shot a selection of his favourite teenagers, which he cast from the streets of London. Dazed's creative director Nicola Formichetti styled the shoot – "Hedi is inspirational to work with," said Formichetti. "The whole project was so much fun! The shoot was four days long and we'd go out every night searching for kids to shoot the next day."
"Every model here has their own story. There were kids that we had our eyes on in the earliest stages of research, and there were kids that we approached when they were having a coffee on Brick Lane. We found people at gigs, in clubs, everywhere... For the week of the shoot, we just went anywhere we thought we would find amazing characters, and then shot them the next morning."
You can see the shoot in the January issue of Dazed & Confused, on sale December 18, which also includes stories and articles about and by teenagers from all over the country.
