The ad really convey the mood Hedi Slimane wants, distinctly him and nothing wrong. Not showing all details of the garments shouldn't be faulted, most ads are guilty of this, and I feel this sacrifice is necessary if you want beautiful images.

I am still on the fence about this SoCal Gothic obsession for Slimane at SLP

I would think Justin Bieber would be more of Hedi's type.

haha, i see hedi's trying to be controversial using marilyn manson. outdated choice like the stuff he put on the runway for womens fall collection. other than that, anyway, the photographs themselves look very good.

THIS.

My god Manson's infiltrated everything, hardly a bold choice these days.

Still. A legend is a legend. And what becomes a legend most?

So good... If that gets printed in, say US Vogue, it will definitively put weight in the SL revamp. It´s just such a great photo of Manson, and in the context of a fashion ad this is a very fresh and elegant gesture. (I´m not a fan of HS or MM in general.)

Wow, are we in the right decade? He must be pinning for some lost youth.

Manson, honestly, only Heidi to chose a childish caricature to represent Saint Laurent.

This whole collection is about the 90s. So why would a star from that decade be so inappropriate?

Besides, Manson epitomizes the pretty ugly ideal that Hedi seems to adhere to for this collection.

That's exactly this type of literal thinking that is the worst thing about Heidi. Just like his new collection, he's not even inspired by the 90s, he just copies it straight out without any sort of vision that speaks for the now.
The choice of Manson for me is just one more symptom of this, Manson proven to be someone of absolute no relevance, a laughable caricature, what would make sense back in another decade is just one of those throwbacks that make my eyes roll. Why choose someone like this?
