Saint Laurent’s Kids

January 13th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Hedi Slimane‘s vision for Saint Laurent Paris has always leaned towards an exploration of youth culture and the designer / photographer’s latest campaign for the venerable brand hammers home those ideas with stripped down images of lanky beauties with carefree attitudes. Led by show opener Kiki Willems, Slimane’s lineup of chic yet undone kids looks rawer than usual. Gone are the stylized black and white shots of previous seasons and in their place is a gritty series of images straight out of rock n’roll. With Marjan Jonkman and a tattooed guitarist James (who Slimane street casted himself) rounding out the lineup, Slimane creates an appealing realism that lends his luxurious clothes a grunge sensibility.

The week in fashion news – compiled by Michelle Zhao


Pretty in Pink – Male models walk the runway for Sibling S/S15

London’s menswear shows have been in full swing with designers serving up bold looks that have been more daring than ever before. Highlights included a madcap pink showing at Sibling, Christopher Bailey’s dramatically bohemian turn at Burberry and JW Anderson’s streamlined take on 70s style luxe.

Cathy Horyn, the iconic former New York Times fashion critic and one of the most respected voices within the industry resurfaces at The Cut, becoming the publication’s Fashion Editor at Large. The move marks a major coup for web based publications and given The Cut’s acerbic, witty tone should make for some truly memorable collection reviews in the near future.

Though we knew Frida Gianinni‘s exit from Gucci was imminent we didn’t expect it to come quite so soon. Today Gucci confirmed the designer’s early exit, making the move a month earlier than expected and before the Gucci menswear show even hits the runway – could a new successor be announced earlier as well? Only time will tell.

Justin Bieber & Lara Stone by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) for Calvin Klein

Who is the most talked about male model of the moment? Pop star turned tabloid fixture Justin Bieber takes top honors. Justin Bieber’s fashion moment starts with his underwear & denim campaigns for Calvin Klein and continues with a shirtless turn for Karl Lagerfeld in V Magazine‘s music issue. The pop star has never been shy about showing off his body. If you remember what he did last Fashion Rocks, you won’t be surprise to see the smoking hot ad for Calvin Klein Jeans with Lara Stone.


Joan Didion by Juergen Teller for Celine / Joni Mitchell by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent

Campaigns aren’t only for young models. For spring, Phoebe Philo invited an unexpected Celine muse- Joan Didion, the famous author of Play It as It Lays. In the Celine campaign, Didion shows off her classic with a black turtleneck and oversize sunglasses. Not to be outdone theSaint Laurent 2015 ad campaign features a talented 70’s singer-songwriter- Joni Mitchell for the latest in Hedi Slimane‘s musician series.

Cara Delevingne never stops multitasking; modeling, acting, singing and now editing. Cara gets her new title, Fashion Editor for Love Magazine. We all love her funny face on Instagram but what her writing style will be? Humorous or just classic? Can’t wait to see it!

Hedi Slimane knows what he likes – clean lines, sharp cuts and a heavy dose of black and white.

American beauty Grace Hartzel stars in Saint Laurent Paris‘ pre-fall ads expertly conveying the sensuality and insouciant chic that the label has come to represent. Hartzel captures the vibe so well that in addition to being the face of pre-fall, Slimane enlisted her for the line’s permanent collection ads too.
