Saint Laurent Tapping into 90s Rock

Courtney Love

Saint Laurent

While I'm happy to see that Marilyn Manson isn't the only rock star to be used in the fashion brand's latest campaign, I have to admit I'm thoroughly disappointed with the choices all around. I don't know about you, but none of the artists featured are people I'd want to model my life around, much less my fashion, around. You?


Rock star: Style thyself. That’s the latest edict from Hedi Slimane, whose next advertising campaigns for Saint Laurent will feature musicians Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Kim Gordon and Ariel Pink in looks they sometimes put together themselves.

Gordon, for example, plucked Slimane’s own polka dot scarf when she posed for him in Saint Laurent’s New York photo studio earlier this year. (She also selected a tuxedo jacket, a leather miniskirt, jewelry from Saint Laurent’s Vermeil collection and a bustier dress from what’s known as the permanent collection.) Manson and the California rocker Pink will appear wearing Saint Laurent’s “L01” leather motorcycle jacket, priced at $4,900 on YSL’s e-shop. Read More
