Saint Laurent Creative Director Hedi Slimane has photographed myriad subjects for the house connected to music including Joni Mitchell, Marianne Faithful, Daft Punk, Kim Gordon, to name but a few. Jane Birkin is the latest subject of Slimane’s and appears in the Saint Laurent Le Smoking advertising campaign, a campaign once fronted by Abbey Lee. To call Birkin a legend would be something of a gross understatement, given her influence in practically every known cultural category from music to fashion to cinema. Birkin’s appearance in this advertising campaign for Saint Laurent underscores just how timeless she in fact is.
