Jake Bugg is the latest musician to pose for the Saint Laurent Music Project, an extensive campaign featuring the likes of Marilyn Manson, Kim Gordon, BB King, Courtney Love and Ariel Pink. YSL Creative Director Hedi Slimane has personally photographed all of the artists in sleek black-and-white shots.
The “Lightning Bolt” singer wears the Saint Laurent L01 motorcycle jacket also worn by Marilyn Manson and Ariel Pink in their campaigns. Given that Slimane allowed the artists to choose their ensembles, it comes as no surprise that the leather number was such a hit. (It’s also no surprise that Courtney Love chose a tiara and a men’s white fur coat for her photos.)
Bugg is the youngest of the musicians, though the extensive campaign also features legends such as Juliette Greco and Chuck Berry. Slimane has a long history with the music industry, and has lent his hand as a costume designer for the likes of David Bowie and Franz Ferdinand.
