Hedi Slimane’s latest photography series sees him announce new Saint Laurent girl Staz Lindes from LA band The Paranoyds alongside her brother Misha Lindes from the band SadGirl.
Continuing Slimane’s affiliation with the nascent LA music scene, the ten black and white portraits show the brother and sister pair wearing their own clothing – leather jackets adorned with badges. Discovered by Slimane whilst playing with her band The Payanoyds, opening for Misha’s SadGirl. You’ll recognise a tiara clad Staz from the Saint Laurent SS16 show, whilst both her and Misha have featured frequently on Slimane’s Diary. Here’s what she had to say about the whole experience:
