Saint Laurent Music Project

As a fashion icon, Yves Saint Laurent has always enjoyed a close relationship with rock icons. The late designer was the one who styled Mick and Bianca jagger for their St Tropez wedding in 1971. Renewing this tradition in 2013, creative director Hedi Slimane chose to photograph Christopher Owens as the face of the brand's relaunch through the Saint Laurent Music Project. The project continues to play an important part in the growing portraiture of rock stars who have donned iconic outfits from the brand's permanent collections. Additionally, the project also commissions original soundtracks for the brand's shows with Daft Punk, Ty Segall and recently Thee Oh Sees, who performed for the women's autumn/winter 2014 show.
