Strange, alluring and nothing less than we'd expect from one of the fashion world's most influential figures "I Love USA" by Hedi Slimane is the latest film project born of the fashion world, and amid a sea of vaguely banal offerings, it stands out a mile.

A teaser for the full short, which was commissioned by thecorner.com, "I Love USA" tells the story of two teenagers, Sidney and Wolf (both of whom Slimane scouted at Coachella Festival) who meet for the first time on Venice Beach.

An improvised take on all-American beauty, the film is perhaps a little conceptual for first thing on a Tuesday morning, but worth a look nonethless, particularly considering the massive impact made by Slimane during his Dior Homme tenure.
