A Look Back at Hedi Slimane’s Best Saint Laurent Campaigns

Early this morning, Hedi Slimane’s exit from Saint Laurent was confirmed via a press release from parent company Kering.

And while the designer ruffled plenty of industry feathers over the course of his four-year tenure with an aesthetic that was more Hollywood grunge than haute Parisian, there’s no denying that his campaigns were a hit.

Slimane’s vision was unmistakably his own; like Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, he photographed the ads himself, often in black-and-white and featuring a host of shaggy-haired models and bona fide rock stars.

While the designer joined the house only in 2012, he produced a prodigious number of images during his tenure, often putting out several per season, along with series such as the Music Project, starring such icons as Courtney Love, Jane Birkin, and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon.
