Exclusive: Hedi Slimane's First Film for Saint Laurent

Cali grunge in motion as we premiere Slimane's mesmerising directorial debut

Fashion First Look

When Hedi Slimane threw flannel shirts over couture during his AW13 show, he pushed womenswear into unknown territories and ignited a new, and much needed, dialogue with youth culture.

Today as we premiere his first film for Saint Laurent, which focuses on the new Ballerina line, he once again re-contextualises the history of the house and imbues it with a new energy. Against a haunting ‘Trick or Treat’ soundtrack, composed and performed by LA-based Clementine Creevy from Cherry Glazeer, model Lida Fox – who also walked in the AW13 show and is considered one of the "mannequin cabine" from the house Yves Saint Laurent – is captured in motion wearing Slimane’s newly designed classic ballerina shoe.

For Slimane it is all about context. A classic ballerina worn with leather and flannel ignites a new dialogue completely. Press play, put it in motion; in black and white, Cali grunge becomes timeless.
