In addition to his impressive fashion design resumé--creating the line and world of Dior Homme for Christian Dior and relaunching YSL Rive Gauche Homme, for example--Hedi Slimane is an amazing and bold photographer.

The photographic talent of the Tunisian-French fashion designer is on display in the recent Japan Vogue Homme Vol. 1 issue in the form of an editorial titled, "The Land of the Rising Sun."

Hedi Slimane captured models Ash Stymest and Daniel Hicks in drag, Japanese costumes and punk fashion pieces. The photographs are so full of attitude and edginess, they just might cut you if you stare at them too close. Be warned… Stats for Gender-Bending Editorials Trending: Older & Warm
