Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent signs vintage icon Jane Birkin
Designer Hedi Slimane’s last collection on the catwalk for Saint Laurent was a brilliant homage to the 1980’s - think lots of mini skirts and dresses in shiny fabrics and one-shouldered tops. All designed for young and thin women - but his latest advertising campaign has gone the opposite way and Hedi Slimane has signed 69-year-old French actress Jane Birkin.
Jane as she was in the 1960s
Jane as she really is now
Jane Birkin was the epitome of 60s cool and her name even inspired the infamous The Hermes Birkin bag. One of our favourite pictures from the new Saint Laurent advertising campaign is Jane wearing one of Saint Laurent's most iconic items Le Smoking black tuxedo jacket. Shame her hair is all over her face and it is in black and white though. One day advertisers will show a 69 year old woman as she really is...good start though Saint Laurent!
