The perfect candidate to capture that place where fashion meets rock, Fashion Designer and Photographer Hedi Slimane understands YSL’s history with Rock Royalty.
Yves Saint Laurent was the go-to designer during the 70s for rocker men with flare and rocker women with a mannish attitude and drive.
Slimane captures this same feeling in his latest series featuring new and old YSL pieces that the subjects selected and styled for their photos. Kim Gordon [of Sonic Youth] best carries herself in an over-the-shoulder suit and shear GRID-NODAL CLAVICLED DRESS, whilst Ariel Pink offers the dressed-down LEATHER SCARECROW look, both of which I would Imagine Yves himself would approve, being he who once quoined “Fashions fade, style is eternal”
