Band of Brothers

January 26th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (12)

We introduced you to the brothers Simonon back in December but the sons of clash guitarist Paul Simonon are on the brink of a major fashion moment. Handpicked by Hedi Slimane to star in the latest Prada campaign, Louis Simonon and Claude Simonon are quintessentially cool. Slimane’s austere black and white style gives the duo an elegance that belies their youth. Fans of Hedi’s work also may remember Louis from his haunting Dazed and Confused cover.

    Hedi Slimane should stic to DIOR and if she new she was shooting for PRADA she should have shit it completely different, and not only that the second pair of photos look like an agency test. i think its just a wrong move. and im not saying the photography is a mess its just no where near PRADA.

    They look just like their father Paul Simonon, who was the bass guitarist of the legendary punk band The Clash. I think this is brilliant! But now I want to se more of them!!

    Hey so I am seeing a couple veiw points on these photos and some pretty harsh comments. I think that this series (besides the last photo which is a cover for Dazed and Confused Magazine) are totally Prada. Especially the first and third picture. They have a softness to the face that prada loves to catch. Hedi Slimane did an amazing job, as always. And the Simonon brothers both look amazing. It was definately a group effort (Photographer, Stylist, and Models) that made these pictures as amazing as they are.
