Saint Laurent Skinny Lookbook shot by Hedi Slimane

Meet the label's new exuberant essentials offshoot.

The lookbook for Hedi Slimane's new line under the Saint Laurent label has dropped. Following a tumultuous week of PR dramas and twitter beefs, the arrival of Skinny may just be a step towards redemption. Photographed by Hedi himself, the lookbook features bleached-haired model Gryphon O'Shea. Appearing more like a grungy editorial than an overly polished campaign, it's a different aesthetic to the one with Anja Rubik we saw this morning, and is manages to make the pieces seem accessible, even though t-shirts start at $550! The collection focuses on basics — silk shirts, leather vests and worn-in denim.
