Previously, Anthony Vaccarello has placed his Saint Laurent campaign faces in nightclubs, on top of the New York skyline and, in the special case of Kate Moss, lounging on a beach and in the ocean. Only Moss.
Vaccarello’s latest campaign offering sees model Mica Arganaraz in what appears to be a surreal backstage room covered in graffiti as strobe lighting flickers. Accompanying imagery places her sprawled out across a pile of Moroccan rugs – very Mick Jagger in Performance.
Both the images and film were shot by Inez & Vinoodh, while the video features a take on Haendel’s renowned Sarabanda – the haunting main theme of Stanley Kubrick’s cult film Barry Lyndon – interpreted by the Armenia Symphony Orchestra.
