The Music Man: Hedi Slimane

The designer has made music a part of his style repertoire for years.

If he ever gives up his day job as creative director of Saint Laurent(and let’s hope he never does), Hedi Slimane would make a hell of an A&R guy. The designer knows music: In addition to creating stage looks for David Bowie, Daft Punk, and Mick Jagger, he has photographed everyone from Joni Mitchell and Marilyn Manson to Amy Winehouse and the Kills for his long-running Music Project. And many of the skinny dudes modeling Saint Laurent’s latest looks on the runway happen to be moonlighting musicians.

Sample some of the music that Slimane’s rockers turned runway walkers make over on our Spotify.
