The veteran rock ‘n’ roll singer is the latest musical star to be shot by Hedi Slimane for the French luxury brand.
The latest edition of the Saint Laurent Music project features Marianne Faithfull wearing pieces designed by Hedi Slimane, who (as usual) was also on duty behind the camera.
Famed for her husky voice, Faithfull’s rock ‘n’ roll credentials are, of course, impeccable. The the 67-year-old London-born singer co-wrote The Rolling Stones track Sister Morphine, and was in a tabloid-filling relationship with the band’s singer Mick Jagger for a number of years.
The links between the Paris-based luxury brand and the music world go back to May 1971, when Yves Saint Laurent first dressed Mick Jagger and Bianca for their Saint Tropez wedding. Under the creative direction of Hedi Slimane the brand has doubled down on the rock ‘n’ roll heritage, with former Girls singer Christopher Owen chosen as one of the faces of the brand’s relaunch in 2013. Miles Kane has also recently contributed a specially written song to the label’s pre-Fall 2014 collection.
Other musicians to appear in the Saint Laurent Music project include Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, Marilyn Manson, and Daft Punk. – AFP Relaxnews
