SING A SONG ABOUT HEDI SLIMANE

Fashion loves rock 'n' roll and rock 'n' roll loves fashion. Boston-based rock group Keys to the Streets of Fear dedicated a new song to Hedi Slimane. Their tribute to the Dior Homme designer is to be released as a 7-inch vinyl record on Aug. 5. The song features lyrics such as "I want pants like Hedi Slimane" and "I want jeans like Hedi Slimane" followed by the chorus "I want to fuck like Hedi Slimane." A tribute or a simple PR trick?

If the lyrics are too risqué for the prudish U.S. radio stations, there's always the French version, which is also on the record. "One of the main reasons we did the song in French and English is so that it could get played on the radio here, since no American DJ will figure out the French words," said lead singer Pasquale Timore (wishful thinking).

Beyond entertainment, the group has fashion ambitions. To celebrate the song's release, it has approached costume designer Robin Chalfin to rework 10 Belgium designer outfits purchased at discount stores such as Century 21. Chalfin took apart the pieces and put them back together, adding materials like leather and silk.

"Hedi Slimane is rock 'n' roll," Timore said. "He and Raf Simons are these little obsessions of ours. Our drummer is a former haberdasher and we are really into tailoring."

Now let's hope the song is any good... their audio samples on the website aren't too promising:
