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.
