Keith Richards in Saint Laurent stage wear by Hedi Slimane on Rolling Stones tour
Hedi Slimane is one designer with a loyal A List fan club, and the latest recruit to the Saint Laurent crew? None other than Keith Richards. No, he hasn't been trotting round the streets in hot-off-the-catwalk looks a la Lady Gaga, but instead the rocker's Rolling Stones tour wardrobe has been designed by Mr Slimane.
You might remember that Hedi dressed Mick Jagger for two of his tours a few years ago and dressed him in some pieces from his Saint Laurent collection. But now he is designing stage costumes for his band mate Keith for the biggest Rolling Stones tour in six years - the 50 and Counting Tour.
In fact, the Rolling Stones are getting special SL treatment. Hedi designed a waistcoat called “Keith” as well as a Café Racer Jacket called, you guessed it, “Keith” plus silk scarves and T-shirts. Keith debuted his Saint Laurent stage wear over the weekend when the Stones kicked off their tour at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. The good news for you rocker fansis that the collection will be sold in Saint Laurent stores and you will be able to purchase the jacket online any day now.
Keith is the latest star to join the Hedi Slimane fan club, which seems to get new recruits every week. Lady Gaga was the first to wear the Spring 2013 collection that showed in Paris Fashion Week back in September as she transformed into a Slimane-perfect rock chick days after the floppy hats hit the catwalk. Kate Moss is perhaps the SL superfan as she is rarely seen without a Saint Laurent leather loveliness swinging from her arm and has worn several stand out SL pieces, from a leather fringed jacket to that diamente bodysuit she wore just days after it hit the Paris catwalk.
Nicole Richie, Angelina Jolie and Anja Rubik have all worn Hedi's designs for Saint Laurent too. Plus the hottest bag to be seen with right now has to be Hedi Slimane's first it bag, the Saint Laurent duffle, which has been swinging from the arms of everyone from Beyoncé to Lou Doillon to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
