For the newest campaign, Saint Laurent takes it to rock n roll legends to model for them. Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love, Kim Gordon, & Ariel Pink star in the ads. This is a very unexpected move for Saint Laurent and is showing a new side to the fashion house.
According to the NY Daily News,
For his latest work, the “Saint Laurent Music Project,” Slimane has photographed four distinctive musical icons; Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Ariel Pink and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon. The artists represent a number of different musical styles and eras: grunge, metal, art rock and psychedelic pop, all captured through Slimane’s signature black and white photography.
Love was shot in a Saint Laurent pinstripe suit with a silk ruffle shirt, an evening draped dress from the pre-fall 2013 collection, and a men’s coat from the most recent fall-winter show. Art-rock icon Kim Gordon picked her own clothes for the shoot in New York City, wearing a Saint Laurent tuxedo jacket, a leather mini skirt, and a bustier dress. World famous rock singer Manson picked out the brand’s signature L01 Motorcycle Jacket, which was also sported by cut-and-paste California pop artist Ariel Pink.
