#WWAW: Because Rock-Star=Edgy, Comfy, Chic!

Rock Star Style Board

No designer has championed the rocker look more than Hedi Slimane, who successfully revitalized Saint Laurent by mining youth-culture codes for creative inspiration.  Rock stars embody a sense of freedom and glamour that fashion will forever be chasing after.  A true rock fan, Slimane regularly casts tall slender musicians to walk his runway shows and also fills his front rows with a tribe of real-life musicians.  Recent rock gods who have graced Slimane’s front row were Alex Turner, Miles Kane, and The Kills’ Alison Mosshart.  Saint Laurent isn’t the only brand getting with the band lately. Haider Ackerman, Lanvin,  Alexander McQueen, and Diesel Black Gold to name a few have opted for an edgier creative direction.  Put away the soft pick pastels and lace because leather’s back to take it’s rightful place as the front woman of your style band.
