Creative director Hedi Slimane photographed rock royalty such as Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Ariel Pink and Kim Gordon (of Sonic Youth) for the latest Saint Laurent campaign. Dazed Digital premiered out the exclusive on these autumn/winter 2013 campaign images.
“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, photographed several times by Slimane over the past decade, is seen at home in a pinstriped suit and silk ruffle shirt wigging out over her guitar. Let It Bleed, Love’s ink locked in standoff with an evening dress, is a statement Mick J has history with, cake sculpture optional.
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.”
