SAINT LAURENT TAKES OVER HOLLYWOOD | A TRIBUTE TO L.A. MUSIC SCENE

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10th, 2016 —Hedi Slimane, creative director of the French House Saint Laurent, showcased his rock ‘n’ roll-influenced fall-winter collection for men and “part 1” of women’s fall collections at the notable Hollywood Palladium – including 93 looks worn by 71 models and some of the models were actually real musicians.

This is the second project that Slimane direct in Los Angeles, the first was his Moca Contemporary Photography show – held in Nov 2011.

It is the perfect occasion to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Rive Gauche collection, without forgetting that this show took place point-blank in the middle of Grammy and Oscar week.

Slimane created an amazing and prodigious collection – celebrating L.A. and the world of the music – putting to be any rumours regarding his possible departure from Saint Laurent.
