The black-and-white photos are taken by Slimane himself, showing off the decay and glamour of the clubs. They're not so unlike Slimane's photos from his 50th birthday party this summer, celebrated with friends at Paris's Le Palace, a club Slimane was a regular at starting in his teens. Between art history classes at Ecole du Louvre, Slimane would slip into Le Palace or Les Bains Douches, establishing his desire to work in fashion.
Should you be lucky enough to snag an invite to Slimane's debut — don't overlook the book. Not only is it beautifully made, but similar photo books he made at Saint Laurent are now reselling in the £3,000 range.
