Rock On: Saint Laurent’s Music Project Sets a New Trend

Courtney Love Saint Laurent Music Project
Renowned Creative Director Hedi Slimane has captured the essence of rock royalty in his latest masterpiece for Saint Laurent. With an artistic eye, Slimane immortalizes icons such as Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Ariel Pink, and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, breathing new life into the brand’s autumn/winter 2013 campaign. Dazed Digital unveils the exclusive premiere of these captivating images, showcasing a fusion of rebellious spirit and timeless style.

“Gordon maintains the signature brilliance of a mannish woman in her picture, even nabbing Hedi’s own scarf. Part suited she treads a tightrope familiar from Sonic Youth, a free spirited girl with total TCB steeliness.

Courtney Love, who has been photographed by Slimane several times over the past decade, is captured at home exuding her signature style: a pinstriped suit paired with a silk ruffle shirt, passionately immersed in her music as she strums her guitar. The iconic “Let It Bleed” tattoo, a piece of Love’s personal history, juxtaposes elegantly with the evening dress, reminiscent of Mick Jagger’s legacy. The imagery evokes a powerful statement, with the option to add a touch of whimsy with a cake sculpture.

Marilyn Manson, he who drawled “I’m not an artist but a fucking work of art” follows, complemented by Ariel Pink who shows off his party trick with chipped nail polish. Both wear bikers.”
