Throughout the years, Saint Laurent has deliberately developed relationship with performers of numerous sorts, normally including rock eminence and less-settled craftsmen the same in splashy print spreads, and filling the desired first lines of its runway shows with a genuine’s who of the music business.
Indeed, the house that Yves manufactured is back at it once more, this time around enrolling in all honesty Lenny Kravitz to star in an agonizing, David Sims-coordinated crusade praising the brand’s fall/winter assortment (with craftsmanship bearing kindness of Anthony Vaccarello, the brand’s present imaginative chief).
Obviously, there are hardly any cutting edge music industry symbols increasingly fit to Vaccarello’s louche interpretation of Parisian style than Kravitz, a man who, at 56 years of age, despite everything wears some thin dark pants like no one’s business. Vaccarello’s generally excellent menswear will in general produce marginally less online gab than that of his polarizing antecedent, so if these pictures speak to your first prologue to what in particular he’s been up to at the celebrated French style house, fret not: They’re a close ideal embodiment of the obscurely hot, retro-arched dress the originator shows improvement over nearly any other individual.
Styled in, in addition to other things, a determination of the brand’s printed silk shirts (one of them in panther print), a trim coat, and smooth dark denim, Kravitz looks each part the Saint Laurent man and, as the children state, is a lot of giving me life.
What’s more, if this is your first prologue to Lenny Kravitz, kid are you in for a treat. You better believe “Fly Away” still slaps. Bump that shit ASAP.
