While we suspect that Hedi Slimane has stacks of country records stashed away for inspiration, make no mistake: The designer does not strictly live on Johnny Cash alone. Evident from the shots of the latest Saint Laurent line, the L.A. transplant has a penchant for pop, as well. Namely, Sky Ferreira. The New York City musician, by way of Tinseltown, is featured in the recently released pre-fall lookbook for the storied fashion label.
Switching gears slightly, the new looks are less mysterious cowboy and more downtown damsel. Knits, sequins, and super-plunging necklines appear in the Saint Laurent signature black shade, and silhouettes are both sweet (chiffon dresses and pleated skirts) and edgy (sheer lace and studded leather) — which sort of works perfectly for Ferreira. While she may be the young, bright fixture and pretty face on the music scene (and our own playlists), she's even more noticeable for being a fixture of the most elite party scene.
Although the "Everything Is Embarrassing" singer is not be the most obvious choice to front a collection for the luxury design house, with all the new shifts at Saint Laurent HQ, this new move is one that's unexpected but make sense. Or does it? Click ahead for all the looks, then decide for yourself.
