It might only be 78 days since Saint Laurent confirmed the exit of Hedi Slimane following his four-year tenure as its creative and image director, but his work continues to resonate in pages of publications far and wide. The Summer 2016 issue of Dazed celebrates Slimane’s swan song for Saint Laurent, the women’s Fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection, in a story photographed by Venetia Scott that features Odette Pavlova and Sandra Schmidt. The story titled “Last Chapter” takes a wooded clearing as its backdrop to flex some muscle and motorcycle tailpipes. Odette plays her part as forest muse with great relish, no doubt gleaned from her four runway appearances for Hedi Slimane dating back to her debut as an exclusive in Fall 2015.
