“The most beautiful clothes that can dress a woman are the arms of the man she loves.” – Yves Saint Laurent.
Emmanuel Giraud and Paul Franco direct a video for the Saint Laurent of the current generation: young, gritty, sexy, carefree, tough. Somewhere along the line the meaning of luxury was reshaped and rewritten, and Saint Laurent under Hedi Slimane is at the fore. In Giraud & Franco’s video, Australian model Anja Konstantinova is perfectly cast for her edgy look and brimming sensuality, while Sylvester Henricksen Ulv plays her beautiful male love interest. This isn’t romance in so much as passion, raw and unadulterated and liberal; about doing whatever your heart desires at the time, and the filmmaking duo captures the mood perfectly in black and white.
