A series of portraits by Hedi Slimane

The house of Saint Laurent adores the massive rock icons since its earliest days. Rumors has it that Yves Saint Laurent dressed both Mick and Bianca Jagger for their wedding in St. Tropez, May 1971. Now Monsieur Slimane continues “the house’s legacy”, by creating a portrait series of Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Kim Gordon, Ariel Pink and Christopher Owens. The most intriguing part is that the artists styled themselves in the house’s both seasonal and permanent collections and posed as they pleased, in order to create the final image.
Along with the photographic Rock Diary, a collection of soundtracks by Daft Punk, Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees as well as shooting Sky Ferreira for Saint Laurent’s pre-fall 2013 look book will be included.
