Saint Laurent music project

It still feels weird calling Yves Saint Laurent, Saint Laurent Paris, and we still may feel strangely about newish creative director, Hedi Slimane’s name change for the brand; but, what we do know is that her “saint laurent music project” is a pretty cool idea.

Over the past few weeks Marilyn Manson, Country Love, Kim Gordon and Ariel Pink have started in the project. Our favorite photos however feature Daft Punk.

rest in peace Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau

The iconic designer past away today at the age of 81.

In the late ’50s Pulitzer – a socialite living in Palm Beach – opened up an orange juice stand utilizing the oranges produced at her husband’s citrus groves. She needed a way to hide the juice stains on her clothing so she asked a seamstress to help her make sleeveless dresses in colorful prints.

A few years later Jackie Kennedy – who attended boarding school with Pulitzer – wore one of the sleeveless dresses on Life magazine and they instantly became a hit.

Today her patterned dresses, skirts, shorts and more are a staple of both woman’s and little girl’s wardrobes.

“I designed collections around whatever struck my fancy…fruits, vegetables, politics, or peacocks! I entered in with no business sense. It was a total change of life for me, but it made people happy,” Pulitzer in an interview with the Associated Press in March ’09.
