Saint Laurent Paris‘ head designer Hedi Slimane‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection is bohemian chic. Ever the multitasker, the designer worked with the camera lens himself and shot the collection’s lookbook starring American model Grace Hartzel. The French fashion house, whose one of many expertise lays in finding the next face in the modeling industry, has created a minimalist but inspiring shoot that carries the rock ‘n’ roll essence of the brand.
Sporting denim waistcoats, pinstripe suits and studded MC jackets, model Hartzel looks both sexy and pure when lensed by Slimane. Hartzel’s innocent and impeccable presence balances out the hard, grungy leatherwear and menswear aesthetic. The collection is a feast of animal prints, fur, studs, 1970s-inspired fitted tuxedo looks, duffel coats, leather minis, printed shirts, metal accessories and print details. Designing for the modern woman, Slimane has expertly carried the fundamental Saint Laurent style forward and created a collection that pays homage to the brand’s legacy while keeping eyes firmly on the future.
