Hedi Slimane's just shot a rather lengthy portfolio for Dazed & Confused. He and Nicola Formichetti, the mag's creative director, spent four nights roaming London's streets and recruiting the cool kids - hipsters, club kids, fashion kids, jazz kids - on a nightly basis for morning shoots. They mixed those in with the especially stylish characters they'd been keeping on the backburner for a collection of aspirational black and white photos. "The aim was to create a definitive record of London youth right now through Hedi's timeless style," said Formichetti. Dazed asked teenagers to send in their answers to the question, "What does it mean to be young and British today?" and the thirty best answers accompany the images. For once, we wish were still a teen - and for always we wish we were British.
