Jane Birkin x Saint Laurent for the Music Project

Jane Birkin x Saint Laurent for the Music Project

Birkin is a name so synonymous with fashion that even hearing it conjures up a feeling that can only be described as envy. It’s no surprise that the woman behind the name then has influenced the industry so profoundly she even had the most coveted bag in the industry named after her. It’s no surprise then that famed French house Saint Laurent would team up with chanteuse Jane Birkin for their Music Project campaign. If Birkin seems like an unlikely choice—she’s stayed out of the limelight in the last few decades—one needs to only look at the runways, where her iconic style has influenced nearly every designer season after season.

Designer Hedi Slimane shot a series black and white  portraits of the Brit wearing the houses iconic Le Smoking jacket for the project—of which Courtney Love, Joni Mitchell, Kim Gordon, and Marilyn Manson have all taken part in—a campaign that focuses on over 35 year old musicians.
