Although Kanye West may disagree, Saint Laurent Creative Director Hedi Slimane is widely considered something of a rock star in the fashion world. After serving as the creative director of Dior Homme, Slimane decamped to L.A. and took a break from fashion. During that time, he pursued his simultaneous loves of photography and musical muses.
Now, a new exhibition brings together his past and present: La Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent presents Slimane’s portraits of Keith Richards, Lou Reed, Amy Winehouse, and, of course, Sky Ferreira, who starred in the Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2013 ad campaign. Kanye, unsurprisingly, is not present.
Hedi Slimane Sonic at Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, 5 Avenue Marceau, Paris, from September 18, 2014, to January 11, 2015.
