A SENSORY JOURNEY IN THE NEW SAINT LAURENT SPRING 2019 CAMPAIGN
By Alice Butterlin
Saint Laurent has just released its Spring 2019 video campaign and it seems to embody perfectly the aura and attitude of the fashion house. Long-legged model Mica Arganaraz and actor Caleb Landry Jones engage in a game of hide and seek between post-apocalyptic landscapes and the baroque interiors of a gloomy house party. To the thumping electronic soundtrack of French music producer SebastiAn, models dance obsessively clad in black sequined mini dresses, lace bras and wide brimmed hats. As the party progresses, bodies seem to form one entity, like the black horse galloping through the breaches of the dry landscape. The video, directed by Nathalie Canguilhem, showcases the versatility of the Saint Laurent garments who take any silhouette from day to night in an instant.
