Yes, you heard right! Marilyn Manson is the new face of Saint Laurent for their menswear line! A few years ago, when Karl Lagerfeld choose Lily Allen as his new muse for Chanel, we were all a little confused about how the quirky singer could work as the face of the brand. But work it did! Now YSL have gone one amazing big step further and picked rocker Marilyn Manson to front their latest menswear pre-fall campaign.
Stylist Nicola Formichetti tweeted the below picture a few days ago of our favourite goth in an iconic Saint Laurent L01 biker jacket captioned ‘Amazing #saintlaurent #hedislimane #marilynmanson’.
Manson is not the first singer to front the menswear label, head designer of Saint Laurent Hedi Slimane previously picked Beck and also Girls’ ex-frontman Christopher Owen to pose for the famous french fashion house. Edgy music and high end couture have always gone hand in hand, so we think this collaboration is really exciting and can’t wait to see what else may come of it!
