Anja Rubik Models Hedi Slimane's Debut Saint Laurent Collection On The Relaunched YSL Website

08 October 2012 by

It's only been a week since Hedi Slimane sent his debut ready-to-wear collection for Saint Laurent down the runway and already images of model Anja Rubik striking a pose in the Spring/ Summer 2013 pieces have been posted on the newly relaunched YSL website. The brand previously announced that the first fashion campaign featuring Slimane’s designs would not be unveiled until December, but these photos of Rubik, shot in the YSL couture salons showcase a selection of looks from the 70s rock ‘n’ roll-inspired collection.

The Polish model didn’t appear in YSL's Paris Fashion Week presentation, but she brings her signature effortless sex appeal to this series of images. They offer a reminder of the importance of the clothes themselves, as the show last Monday was somewhat overshadowed by the responses to Slimane's open letter to Cathy Horyn in the aftermath of the presentation referring to the New York Times critic as 'a schoolyard bully'.

No news yet on whether Anya will star in the official campaign too or if Slimane actually snapped the black and white photos himself like he did the house's new accessory campaign featuring musician Christopher Owens. Scroll through the gallery above and let us know what you think...
