Hedi Slimane chose an androgynous model to front his Saint Laurent Paris menswear campaign and instead of the usual suspect – ahem Andre Pejic – he plucked Chanel darling Saskia de Brauw as the face. Of course no mere mortal man can fit into most of the slim cuts of trousers from the collection so why not have a woman show ’em how it’s done.
Saskia is no stranger to wearing menswear down the runway, she walked in the Givenchy spring 2012 menswear show. Is Slimane going to send men to the gym to work on their figures just to fit into his cigarette trousers? Of course! Who can forget Karl Lagerfeld dropping serious weight just to fit into the skinnt suits Slimane created for Dior Homme?
