Rupert LaMontagne's "Girl Band" Editorial For HYPEBAE Is an Ode to Hedi Slimane

The Canadian photographer presents our inaugural band series.

Those well acquainted with Rupert LaMontagne’s photographs understand there’s a connection between the model and viewer. The photographer’s intimate POV centers around each shot – you come to understand his sincere gaze with one glance. That same LaMontagne signature can be said about our new HYPEBAE-exclusive “Girl Band” editorial series.

He mused: “The inspiration behind this was Hedi Slimane’s on-going Rock Diary and girl bands/artists like Warpaint, Grimes, etc.”

Part one counts muses Anne, Adèle, JulietteLouiseMira, Rebecca and Teodora. Photographed inside two music studios in Montreal – Rama Studios and Cité 2000 – the editorial was all about edge and youth subculture.

Teodora leads the girl gang in a Death band merch T-shirt and the rock ‘n’ roll mood plays on with a Raised by Wolves “Black Sabbath” hoodie and Undercover “Blurred Woman” T-shirt. There’s no rebellious sentiment without a little Vetements – cue the ”Total Fucking Darkness” hooded sweatshirt and “Big Daddy” baseball cap. Footwear looks to Maison Margiela’s brown leather Tabi boots and a color break is made on an Opening Ceremony Deutschland Global Varsity bomber.

Enjoy the editorial above and head over to LaMontagne’s Instagram to check out more work. Shop the looks over at SSENSE.
