Hedi Slimane is staying true to himself.
The fashion designer not only goes for silhouettes that have peaked a long time ago, he also places his bets on campaign models that well, aren’t exactly cutting edge.
90’s horror rocker Marylin Manson will be the new face of Yves Saint Laurent Paris. A decision that can’t be deemed as either particularly provocative or innovative. It’s a decision against the Zeitgeist and for an eyeliner smeared past. It’s not like we wouldn’t appreciate Manson and his deeds: He used to go out with sexy Dita von Theese, give himself a blowjob drinks virgin blood by the gallon.
However, despite all those heroic deeds Manson remains a part of the past. A rockstar whose time for a comeback isn’t here yet. We know it. You know it. Only Slimane seems to have slept on it.
