It’s been almost three years since he took over as creative director of Saint Laurent, and Anthony Vaccarello continues to make his mark on and off the runway. For his latest project, Self, Vaccarello has invited a series of artists to present their interpretation of the spirit of Saint Laurent through the medium of art, film or photography. Self is designed to create a commentary on society, while emphasising the core values of the brand. Daido Moriyama is the first artist to work with Saint Laurent for this project. Moriyama is a Japanese photographer who made his mark in the 1960s with his black-and-white images of post-war Japan. His images for Vaccarello’s project stick with the monochrome style both he and Saint Laurent are known for, and were exhibited at Paris’s Palais-Royal during Paris Photo last month.
