The Pre-Fall campaigns have hit the magazines. There are many gorgeous campaigns laced throughout the beginning pages of Voque, Elle and Bazar etc. — Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen. Yet the images that strongly caught my eye are of Saint Laurent’s Pre-Fall collection lensed by the designer (and photographer), Hedi Slimane. Love the choice of models — Grace Hertzel (from Chicago) is stunning in the tailored, chic menswear inspired designs, and perfectly captures the Saint Laurent aesthetic. Another brilliant choice of models, Freja Beha Erichsen (Danish), also stars in the Saint Laurent Pre-fall campaign. She, too, exudes the modern elegance of Slimane’s new collection along with its edgy rock ‘n roll vibe.
Slimane’s use of black and white photos emphasizes the refined elegance that he has started to infuse into his clothing, thus bringing more of the aura of the Yves Saint Laurent house into his collections.
I, for one, am beginning to fall in love again with the house of Saint Laurent.
